A little off subject but I'll be using the helix 5 G2 this winter. As far as i understand there are two compatible transducers. When i was talking to their chat support they said......

If you're using the XI 9 20 transducer you setting should be HB 83/200khz and when using the XI 9 1521, set to HB 93/200khz

Does anyone know if the navionics chip in the HELIX can do "fishing mode" like the phones can. I want to be able to highlight my fishing depth white from say 6 ft to 13 ft. "fishing range"


No. You cannot do that with navionics chip. Only lake master

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.


Wrong ducer if you’ve got the G2 chirp.

They don't work in any other devices other than humminbird so it isn't going to do anything in there.

To check it, bring it to cabelas or fleet farm and try it in one of their displays units.

Also under the chart tab make sure chart level detail is set to "all"

Check to make sure it is in all the way. Helix 7 is notorious for the card popping out when the door is put back on.

Do you have pilot link? And your looking to use the link?

If you go helix 7 make sure it's the G2N model. Need to have the "N" which stands for networkable. You cannot link a gen 1 or G2 unit only G2N.

Also, I'd skip the lakemaster plus.

Since you have a humminbird unit I'd definitely go with lake master. Depth shading with the different colors makes things easier to see. In Minnesota it has a ton of lakes. Navionics probably has contours on more lakes but lake master has more HD maps in Minnesota with real 1' contours. Check the different lake lists on the lake master site and see if the lakes you fish have 1' contours or not. Google "lakemaster lake list" and the link will pop up.

Glad you are getting it figured out. I guess I should have been more clear on a much earlier post when I told you to update your units!!! Literally the 4 post on the thread. That could have save you a headache. Sorry I was more specific about having to updat trolling motor head, ipilot remote (link only units), and humminbird units. All need to be updated.
