something to keep in mind if you have the helix 7 and soft case, careful when you zip it all the way shut, the power button touches the case and can be easily turned on during transport. you can install a master power switch somewhere else or stop the zipper above the power button to avoid any accidental turn ons, dont want to get out on the lake and find out the battery is dead



Great tip. It has already happened to me. Luckily it was just moving it in the house and I was able to charge up again but a good reminder

Well a spur of the moment trip to Lake of the Woods yesterday gave me a chance to play with these two units.

We had 2 birds and 2 Vexilars in the house. My Helix 7 was fine with no IR but was better with it on. Good clean picture. When I turned the 5 on I had to play with the IR on both units a bit but got it working well. So far so good as far as everything goes. I didn't think I would like the new flasher/sonar screen but I really did.

NOTE" My Helix 5 is on an old ice pack with an 83/200 transducer. Just to see I switched it over to the 1521 setting and everything worked including the IR.

I just picked up my Helix 5 and put in the update. I am going to run it with an 83/200 next to my Helix 7 with the 1521 ducer and see what is what when we get out next week. Stay tuned

Got out on the ice. No interference with vexilar but Marcum gave me some troubles. Bearable but not pretty. I'm using the helix 5 g2 with XI 9 20 transducer.


Did you try out the interference rejection?

I had an ONIX and loved it then moved to a new Helix 10 or I would probably have one. It is a really cool unit for sure.

I have an Aqua Vu Multi Vu HD I'd like to part with that hooks directly into the tv if you should have any interest.

Awesome, thanks Brad! Nice weather we had in Forks today!


GREAT DAY! I was moving right along getting my work done then the text came that school was out early. Everything came to a screeching halt. Not bad though. I blew everything out at about 4 and it has not filled back in to bad.

I've seen the Okuma baitrunner reels used on them and they seem to be a really good idea, but did you just use standard spinning reels and leave the bail open or something else?


Just left the bail open. it help up on the loop an worked great.
