Helix 5 G2 Series is now in stock!Helix 7, 9 and 12 G@ Series to follow!

The HELIX G2 family consists of five models to meet the individual needs of anglers and boaters. All units feature an updated operating system, 800H x 480V 5-inch 256-color TFT display, and allow for gimbal mounting, or in-dash mounting with an optional kit. International models support 200/50kHz. Optional 50 kHz transducers are available for extreme deep-water use. All models in the HELIX 5 G2 family are upgradeable, allowing users to receive software updates when they are available.

Three new units have GPS capabilities built-in - the HELIX 5 CHIRP GPS G2, HELIX 5 CHIRP DI GPS G2, and HELIX 5 CHIRP SI GPS G2. The new GPS units feature a Micro SD card slot for use with advanced cartography or to save screenshots, sonar recordings or waypoints.

So what does this do to my helix 10 SI GPS that I just got not too long ago?? Just keep it updated? Still haven't really gotten it tuned the way id like or like other 998s even that I've seen.. Was there something HB didn't like about it or problems? Im still new to bass fishing so I am learning as I go. It seems to have all I need if I can get it tuned right.
