I just bought a Helix 9 DI/GPS for the front. I am going to exchange the transducer with humminbird.

My question is:

Is the XTM 9 DI 25 T worth the $60.00 over the XTM 9 WIDE 20 T

I fish for crappie in shallow lakes, less than 50' in North East Texas.

Thanks

Gene Taylor

It does not have the extra internal shielding like the trolling motor PUCKS do. The pucks need no mount adapter.
It's that RFI thing.

But the helix 10 SI model comes with the better ducer, right?

Thanks, I thought Wayne had told me that; but I wanted to verify before an order gets placed.
