Helix 7 Mega SI transducer
« on: September 26, 2019, 09:44:13 AM »
Is the Mega SI transducer that comes with the Helix 7 unit(after trade in of standard transom transducer for shielded trolling motor transducer trade in) as good as the built in transducer that comes on Minn Kota Fortrex? There was some confusion when I ordered the trolling motor as the built in Mega SI transducer isn't on the market till February 2020.
I will have to strap the trade in on the trolling motor...

WOW if they are putting in a SI ducer in the T/M I will be very upset, as I just bought a Ulterra with the DI transducer in it. Put a Helix G3N 8 CHO to use with it. Getting out on the water the first time Saturday.
