Does anyone knows the actual distance of the arrow that appear in front of the boat on the humminbird display when you are at max zoom? This will help a lot to approach correctly to a way point and have distance to cast.... any help will be great

There should be a scale on the map somewhere. It all depends on how zoomed in or out you are. What unit are you using?

There is a scale on the side of the Chart View to compare it with.

You really don't need to use that for distance.
Use the Casting Rings setting at the radius setting for the casting distance you want. Stop when you get to the ring.

At the 10' max zoom on a Helix 12 the course projection line is a little less than 30' in length.
