I believe the "n" stands for networkable; as with a ipilot trolling motor (for example)

The only G3 models are the non-networkable (stand alone) Helix 7's.

All models with N are networkable via Ethernet.

What exactly does networkable mean? Other than it has Bluetooth I’m assuming

Ethernet networking is connecting devices together to share data via an Ethernet cable.

The units do not communicate with each other via Bluetooth. The ones with Bluetooth can link to smartphones and tablets to load data.

Oh ok gotcha. Doesn’t really seem necessary to spend an extra 2-300 for that
