I'm looking at getting the Humm 9 or 10 inch mega and not sure which one... i know they say 1 inch makes all the difference lol but in this case is the 1 inch really worth $400 more....TIA

Imo, yes.
But I'm going blind and it really helps when you run split screen.

Is there any difference in picture clarity or is one just a little bigger

I believe 10 has higher pixel count, so yes, better pic

The 10 has about 3,000 more pixels per square inch.

Dont have the mega but have had the Helix 9 and now have 2 Helix 10's. I will tell you that there is a world of difference in clarity and the extra inch helps with map/SI or SI/2d/DI. i was told buy a "salesman" that the nine is better but its not. that's from experience.

go with the 10 for sure. If i had the extra coin at the time i would have went with the 12.

Don't stop with the 10, go 12, even better than the 9 and 10.

Have a 9,10, and 12 mega. Honestly the 3 are almost the same size housing just different screen size and it's not much. The 9 and 10 are close but as stated higher pixels.

I bought the 9 and wish I had gone with the 10. I also have two 12" Lowrance Gen 2's and I can promise you if the Gen 4's do not make a huge impact I will be buying two 12" Solix's and shelve the Lowrances. Had Slade turn my mega and it is absolutely REDONKULOUCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just saying.....

just bought a new 9 and a new 10. have the 9 on the bow and 10 at the console. the 9 is great, but I wish I would have just sucked it up and bought 2 10's. the new mega units are awesome! user friendly also.
