The Humminbird HELIX 5 CHIRP GPS G2 Fishfinder is the ultimate fish finder, featuring a new user interface, CHIRP DualBeam PLUS sonar and Precision Internal GPS Chartplotting with a built-in UniMap cartography. This fish finder also includes a micro SD card slot for optional maps or for saving waypoints. This is the fishfinder that will seriously change the way you fish forever.
Built with an abundance of new, innovative technology, this HELIX 5 CHIRP GPS G2 will display all sonar and GPS data to you on a crystal clear 5 inch screen with a 256 colour display and backlight to see everything, no matter what the weather.
Including SwitchFire sonar and DualBeam Plus sonar, you can control your sonar data exactly how you want it. Use SwitchFire to show how your data will appear with Clear or Max modes and the DualBeam Plus technology combines two beams for great detail and a wide coverage area. Use the narrow beam for high-accuracy returns and bottom. Use the wide beam when you want a larger search area.
This fish finder also incorporates a built in GPS antenna system into the head unit that has precise GPS chart plotting along with a built-in UniMap cartography with a micro SD card slot for optional maps or for saving waypoints.
The Waypoint Management system allows you to save and organise your most important waypoints the way you want to. You can save them alphabetically, by nearest location, by most recently saved, by a specific name, by species, date or even structure.
With a wide selection of new icons to choose from, you can use these to identify waypoints at a glance. As an example you could select “species specific” symbols such as bass and walleye to identify the species you found most at your waypoint spot.
The AutoChart Live feature also allows you to make a map where there is no map. You can create digital, detailed maps live and on the water and you can also use it to enhance your existing charts. The SmartStrike technology will also take you straight to the action by showing you where the fish are biting at any given moment
