I'm looking to upgrade my electronics on my 1-yr old Nauticstar 211 Hybrid from the Simrad Go9 it currently has to a Humminbird on the console and up front. I added a MinnKota Riptide Terrova with i-pilot link last year and I'd like something I could tie with it. The Simrad will stay since it's indash and would be hard to fill that hole, but I have enough room on for a 12". Would like to add a 7 or 9 up front that most likely will be using the transom transducer since the Terrova like to go nuts when in spot lock and will spin itself into a knot sometimes if it's windy! Love the side imaging I had from my old 898 and I know it has drastically improved since them.

Looking for recommendations of Helix vs Solix and is a 7 up front enough or should I just go ahead and pony up for the 9? Has anyone ever seen a good way of mounting a transducer to the Terrova/Ulterra with the way they are deployed and spin around like crazy during spot lock? How are the G3N and G4N screens in direct sunlight?

TIA!
Bret

The Helix 9 has a better processor and transducer than the Helix 7, plus has true Down Imaging rather than the composite DI views created by blending the two SI pulses.
Helix 9 CHIRP MEGA SI+ GPS G4N

All the Helix units have a much brighter display than the 800 series.
