Humminbird HELIX 5 DI Review

Humminbird HELIX 5 DI
Catch more fish on your next freshwater or saltwater outing thanks to the sonar features of the Humminbird HELIX 5 DI. The fish finder utilizes DualBeam/Down imaging, that is filtered with SwitchFire technology.

The latter permits you to adjust the sensitivity to right tune the returns that show on the 5 “LED-backlit display.

This system has RMS electronic energy output of 500W, and a peak to peak output of 4000W, which permits the unit to give a perfect representation of the bottom down to 350 (DI) and 600 (2D).

The transom-mounted transducer specs multiple coverage angles of 75, 45, 28, and 16 @ -10b, so that you can manage the coverage to suit depth and angling situations for the top returns.

With an internal GPS antenna, you will forever know where you are and how quick you are going. Mark waypoints for areas or structures where you have angling achievement and return to them at a later date.

Built-in UniMap cartography covers the nearby United States coastline, inland rivers and lakes at thirty meters per pixel resolution.

Load possible cartography using the micro SD card slot for access to top resolution maps of waterways across North America.
