I think the reason the 45 and the 55 tend to interfere with each other is that they both run the same frequencies. I converted my open water Helix 7 G2N for use on the ice and use the recommended 1521 transducer. I have fished in a 6x12 house with a FL8 and FL18 both running and was able to adjust IR for zero interference. Just fished over the weeked with a ICE 55 in a hub house and had zero interference. There is a bit of a learning curve, but I am very happy with the unit so far. Now if it would just catch some fish for me!


Yes they do, can't adjust them enough to get the swirling to stop.
Going to try the meter/ft thing and if that don't work prob sell the 45 and buy a H7

Thanks all, I tried changing the settings per HB and still get interference, I haven't tried the meters/ft thing but will this week.

That fails I may look at the H7 gn2, HB chat said they thought that "might" work, but nice to hear from someone who actually had it work for them.

I'm currently running two flashers in my icehouse, a Ice 45 and 55.
They are close enough that they interfere with each other.

I'm wondering how a Ice Helix 7 will work?

Anybody?
HB was no help, they said maybe...

Not sure where to go for help and hate to buy a H7 and find out it doesn't work either.

I would guess that the "power" you mentioned above is less about the power of the unit (all Vexilars use 400 watts of power) and more about the transducer. I'm guessing the unit you were using has the Proview ducer which is a 9 degree ducer and broadens out as you turn up the gain.


I was just looking at one today and the way it was explained to me was the gain knob was used to change cone angles but the gain was not affected, might be wrong though.

Spent three days on leech during the AIM tourny with my 2014 2020 FX DC, equipped with a 250 yammie, 9.9 kicker and Terrova bow mount running everything from small white caps (56 mph) to 4 footers (bit slower) and see no cracks.

This is my 4th new boat and first glass one, hopefully my last one too. :)

Nice boat, but not as fishing friendly as the 185 Tourney Sport I had before that, the built in mounts for the depth finders are not a good idea, nor the overly large front deck with the pedestal seat to far back to see the depth readings on my GPS on the bow.

The tracks for the rod holders may work for bobber fishing, but I'd never put a musky trolling rod in one, and the fold down rear seats are a waste for me.

Some may like the boat this way, but I am moving the front pedestal mount forward, using Ram mounts for the sonar and added Trax tracks to the boat.

imho as it comes from the factory it is a nice family/sport/fishing boat, with some mods it becomes a great fishing boat.

No boat will fit all, but with out to many mods you can tailor it to whatever you need.

For me, it goes from a good boat to a great boat then.

Ya, I'd buy one again. :)
