Been wanting one of these since they came out. and the color I wanted. funny how that is important. 2015 model.
Need to get a bow fishfinder for it though. It had a lowrance gen3 on the bow before, and the x-ducer is still there. Has the dealer installed gen 3 in console.
But not going to spend that kind of money on the bow. something 5" so I can use on kayak too.
Suggestions on the FF appreciated.
Game on!!

Nice boat. What’s that stuff on the ground? We haven’t seen decent rain in months out here in West Texas!

grats on the new ride!
Is the trolling motor a spot-lock/anchor type model? If it is and it's a motorguide TM -I would stick with a lowrance upfront. Motorguide will sync with lowrance FFer's

I have a Helix 5 with just basic 2d & DI (no SI or GPS) that I'll sell for $150 or trade. Just got a new 7 with GPS so I can hook it direct to my TM & be able to control TM from the Helix.

thanks!

the troller is currently "not smart" lol. Fortrex 80. The boat is prev-owner wired for Lowrance HDS Gen3, total scan, networked.
Prev owner had 9" units front and back, to there is a wiring harness for that.

I would like to get a spot lock in the near future

Kayak just does not offer the room for anything over 5"
and I need to not spend a fortune.

For this Helix 5 all you need is power to hook it to. I'll throw in the mount that lets you put the transducer on the tm.
