Well i got the ol' Solix 15 installed today. That sucker is massive! I'd like to network it to a front graph and also my trolling motor eventually.

1. Do i need a hub for that?
2. What model can i put on the bow that's about 10" or so and will show me all the MEga awesomeness through my new Solix?
3. Can i get a cheap-o and put it up there & cheat a little?

I just spent 3k on a fish finder (what is wrong with me?!?!?!). If I can get away with just getting a cheap0 helix or something and see the mega resolution from my solix I'll be so happy I could spit.

Yes you will need the hub to network two sonars and a trolling motor that has ipilot link. Any Helix g2n sonar will allow you to "view" the mega imaging on it via ethernet.

Using a Helix and SOLIX together, you can ONLY share waypoints.

If you want to view any SOLIX sonar data on another unit, it has to be another SOLIX or a discontinued ONIX.

This is my ONIX 10 SI NT displaying MEGA Imaging from my SOLIX 12 SI:

Had a brain freeze and just saw its a Solix. Correct, Solix can only share with another Solix or Onix. Helix can view Mega imaging with any other Helix G2N

thanks guys. You'd think you could just bluetooth them together and go by now, right?

No, Wifi maybe. It can handle more data.
