The Helix are just starting to ship...

Here is some interesting discussion on the screen size..(and HB's beloved white readout boxes)...

Have one on the way.  It ships out Monday.  I will take pictures when it comes in.  I posted pictures of my Helix DI unit in the other HELIX thread.

Be aware that if you plan on doing the trade in for the SI transducer, you cannot do it unless you bought your hardware directly from Humminbird.
I was very disappointed as nowhere did I ever see this mentioned while doing all of my research.

I have seen a lot of posts from people who did the upgrade and it should only depend on whether or not you have opened the transducer installation hardware ... not where it was purchased.

If you are dealing with the "factory outlet store".....they are NOT affiliated with Humminbird.
