How to network two helix mega units 1 SI and 1 DI
« on: March 26, 2018, 04:32:36 PM »
I have a Helix 9 Mega SI G2N and on getting a Helix 10 Mega DI G2N. Can I use the Mega 9 SI (XM 9 20 MSI T) transducer on a Mega 10 DI and if so how do I connect it? I would also like to install a transducer on the Minn Kota Power Drive to be able to switch at least one unit to.

Each unit's stock xducer will need to be connected to its own head unit  ...

Then you can Ethernet the units together to select which xducer you want each data coming from  ...in each unit's Ethernet Menu  ...

Here is the Ethernet manual pdf  ...:

Here are the available lengths of Ethernet cables  ...

You will also need an Ethernet adapter cable for each HELIX  ...

Are you wanting either MEGA xducer on the trolling motor  ...or only 2d data  ...??
