I bought an Ultrex with MSI w/I-Pilot Link Bluetooth [1368867]. What do you recommend as a fish finder for me to use w/o breaking the bank that I can use the full potential of this trolling motor. The main thing I would like to do is to find a structure within the range of the fish finder and command it to go there and spot lock it. What is the most expensive and the cheapest option I can purchase to allow my trolling to goto a structure shown on my side imaging? Thanks,

Well you have to start with the most expensive model of every series to even have Side Imaging. And it has to be a G3N or a G4N Helix or a G2 or G3 SOLIX. If you want to spend more there will be an APEX model out soon.
G3N Helix and G2 SOLIX are discontinued and in short supply.

The cheapest would be the Helix 8 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G3N or G4N. There are display sizes up to 15".
Middle of the road is SOLlX starting with the SOLIX 10, then 12", then 15"
The most expensive would be the APEX 19".


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

Wayne, I have a Helix7 MSI GPS G3 NAV+, that is what is written on the sticker on the back that has the serial number so I suppose it is not a G3N so it won't work with my Ultrex, right? Thanks,

If you mean drop way points, then tell your tm to go to x then to y etc. You can do that with any humminbird unit, on the remote you can say go to x.

I used to use that when I first got a tm, but havent used it in years now.

That is correct. I have the same graph and it is not network capable. It has to include the "N". Another easy way to tell if your unit is networkable is to look at the back where the cables connect. If there are 4 receptacles it is network capable. Yours will only have 3 if it is a G3 without the "N" identifier.
