What type of transducer do I need so my HB will pick up the bottom while operating above 25 mph as my Helix Mega looses the bottom. I think HB sells some type in hull transducer that I can split off my side image/down image mega and have bottom while running.

thanks for the help

Not much information in your post to make an educated reply-- two many variables.

1. Exacty which Helix MEGA SI model do you have---the whole model name?

2. What boat do you have?

Yes Humminbird has shoot-thru 2D transducers for all models.


Humminbird Helix 12 CHIRP SI, Helix 12 CHIRP MEGA SI+ GPS G3N, 1198c SI, 1198c SI, ONIX 10 SI NT, Helix 7 CHIRP SI GPS G2,
Helix 7 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G3, Helix 10 MEGA DI+ GPS G3N, SOLIX 12 SI, 360, RC-1

You are looking for a thru-hull transducer. It will attach by means of a y-cable. Some users have had issues with a degraded 2D screen while fishing. If with a thru-hull, boaters must continue to use the chart to stay in safe waters and not rely on the shown depth as accidental groundings could occur.
