There is nothing on that motor to connect to the Helix 9 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G2N to do anything.

The color remote is for the iPilot LINK motors.

No, the wireless remote talks to the iPilot via Bluetooth. Maybe you can link a mobile device via Bluetooth also. READ the manual.

I had a chance to look at it today, I wanted to connect it to my fishfinder, but I dont have any extra cables from the control head.

You need the I pilot link to connect it to your graph, your model has just the I pilot, which will provide you the spot lock feature and other features on your motor only. You can buy the I-pilot link and add it to your trolling motor but it is around $800 if I remember correctly. The I pilot link lets you connect your graph to your trolling motor so they can communicate with each other.

The i-Pilot you have is a self-contained GPS system that is operated via a wireless remote.

There is no way to connect the Terrova you have to your graph.
