Helix 7 chirp si gps g2n settings
« on: August 26, 2018, 05:47:13 PM »
I got 2 of these for my boat but I am having trouble with the settings on the sonar. I'm not sure if I should mess with my frequnceys or anything to get a better picture. Any help would be greatly appreciated q

Most settings work well at default with the following tweaks  ...:

*DI or SI imaging = match Chart speed to boat  ...
*DI or SI imaging Sensitivity = adjust often to brighten/darken the image  ...
*SI Range = shorter for general use 60-70ft - even shorter to distinguish targets  ...
*DI or SI palette = brighter palettes for sunny days/ darker palettes for cloudy days  ...
*2d Chart speed = higher unless using split 2d with DI or SI - then match Chart speed to boat speed  ...   
*DI or SI frequency = higher frequency for more detail with less range - lower frequency for more range with less detail  ...
