Everything is the same except transducers, you will have to replace them. You will need an Ethernet adapter cable for reach helix due to the helix units using a quick release cable tray

Are you referring to I pilot link upgrade kit? The 798 and 999 will use the same power and Ethernet cables, only the mega transducer is different

I pilot and I pilot link are different. Link has an ethernet cable to connect to the ethernet box.

He's replacing a Humminbird with another Humminbird. He has all the wiring he'll need if he is just replacing head units and adding a Mega Transducer.

He only says he has Ipilot already. Doesn't mention link. Link has the ability to communicate with the Helix for contour following among other things. There is an upgrade kit for the Terrova to bring it up to Link. He mentions "Hummingbird said MK Terrova would link with upgrade". I'm assuming his terrova is strictly Ipilot. The transducer connection has nothing to do with link.

Here is a link for one upgrade kit. Depends on how old his terrova is.
