Does Humminbird PC Support Solix Yet?
« on: February 22, 2019, 01:58:05 PM »
I am thinking of upgrading my old 998 to a Solix.  However, I LIVE by Humminbird PC.  I have years of trips archived by date with tracks and the waypoints that were fished. I use it to edit my new waypoints after each trip, change icons, and remove older unused numbers.  I use the link to Google earth to plan trips as well. But I have heard that Humminbird PC only partially supports the Solix units.  Is that still the case?

Are the newest Helix units fully supported as well as the legacy units?

Well, that rules out the Solix for me. 

I use Humminbird PC to edit my icons and waypoints after almost every trip. Then I clear all waypoints, tracks, and routes on the head unit and reload them from an SD card.

It's a shame after all this time that they haven't upgraded the waypoint management software to fully support the Solix.
