I have a Helix 12si at my console and a small 2d unit on the bow using my TM Universal sonar but I want to upgrade the bow electronics. I am leaning toward a GPS/DI unit for the bow as I don't think I'd use Side Imaging on the trolling motor.
I'd appreciate opinions from others who have done this. Will I use Side Imaging?

I like SI on the bow. It assists me in finding my structure faster.
It's not for everyone or every trolling motor....

If you get one with just gps/di, make sure you go through Humminbird and have your transducer swapped for the one designed for the trolling motor.

If a customer (walk-in) purchases a Mega DI unit from us we accommodate the exchange for them. No need to send it to Humminbird and wait. We do the exchange for you.
