Helix 7 chirp G2N settings
« on: July 04, 2018, 08:24:00 PM »
Just upgraded from a 798 CI SI To a Helix 7 chirp SI G2N and was wondering what setting I should adjust to get the best pictures, any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Brian at BBG Marine for the great price

Mostly default settings with a few minor tweaks  ...

*SI Range 30-70ft  ...
*SI high frequency sweep for more detail with less range  ...
*SI low frequency sweep for more range with less detail  ...
*Bright pallete choices for sunny days - darker pallete choice for cloudy days  ...
*SI Sensitivity adjust often to brighten/darken the screen  ...
*2d Sensitivity adjust to an acceptable amount of clutter  ...
