Helix Series Units / Help with transducer location for Helix 5 SI
« Last post by Nemrod on Today at 02:10:37 PM »
I have a new Helix 5 SI GPS and am still installing it. I also have a older 987c that is still my main unit.

Here is a photo of my stern:

Here or on the opposite side in the same position as the 987c transducer?

If I mount it on the starboard side on the fair side of the strake I will be at approximately 12 to 13 inches from centerline. I am afraid it might cause ventilation on that side? And I am afraid it will be shadowed by the 987c transducer on the outboard location port side?

My Johnny Ray quick release pad. The Starboard pad is routed out underneath to allow the cables to exit to the forward side so as to conceal the one inch pass through hole and to help weatherproof the install:

I mounted the Helix up top so I can pull it for my kayak (getting an extra transducer) and also to preserve the console space for another upgrade to a 10 inch Solix etc. at some later date.

Any thoughts?

In global settings you turn off radar and other settings from what I've read.  I have to check my global settings and turn off all that I do not use or have connected.  I believe there is a max depth in the global settings that should be no more than 10 feet deeper than your deepest expected depth.

Thank You, I know you need a 32 GB for base map update.  Wanted to get a small card just for updates, like 4 GB, guess I'll get the 16 GB.

I do believe that 16 is the lowest you can go, and format FAT 32, yes a 10 is best. I am sure that if I am wrong a few others will chime in too correct me. I use a 32 gig sandisk ultra just for updates.

What is the minimal GB of micro SD card to use for the updates.  Does it need to be class 10 or is class 4 okay?
Thank you for all replies.

I think that was only a limited time offer, when the new Helix units first came out.  I got one with mine...not worth the $99 they were selling it for afterwards...

Can someone please tell me why Humminbird did not include the Wireless remote when you purchase a Helix with wireless capabilities? Saw somewhere you could get it free from Humminbird with proof of purchase and receipt anyone know where or if this exist?
