Helix and 1199 compatibility
« on: March 10, 2024, 01:41:33 PM »
Iím moving on from my 1199 to a new helix 12 si G4 and I have a few questions on compatibility.
1. Is the in hull transducer I have installed XP9 20 t compatible or is there a better transducer?
2. Will my Navionics card and my SD stored waypoints card plug in without issues?
3. Is the Y cable I have installed for the 1199 be compatibleP?

1. No  ... HELIX 12 CHIRP MSI+ G4N uses HW CHIRP low Q 2d and your current in hull transducer is 83/200kHz 2d  ... you will need the XP 9 HW in hull transducer  ... https://humminbird.johnsonoutdoors.com/us/shop/accessories/transducers/xp-9-hw-helix-dual-spectrum-chirp-hull-transducer

2. Yes  ...

3. No  ... AS SIDBY Cable is not compatible with HELIX G3N or G4N units  ... you will need the 9 M SIDB Y cable which also has a dedicated DI circuit  ... https://humminbird.johnsonoutdoors.com/us/shop/accessories/cables/9-m-sidb-y-helix-side-imaging-2d-sonar-splitter-cable

Ricki thanks for the response now all I need to do is pull the plug on the new one.
Do you have a sales pitch for me? Iím easily persuaded if the technology of the Helix G4 far far far exceeds the old 1199 si.
