Humminbird Helix 10 CHIRP GPS G2N

Suggested by Capt. Ralph Allen, Southwest Field Editor

A 10-inch color screen combo plotter/sonar at the thousand-dollar price point is hard to resist—especially if you’ve been squinting at the 5- and 7-inch models long popular on bayboats and small center consoles. Humminbird’s second generation Helix units feature vivid, LED backlit displays, powerful GPS/plotting technology, Bluetooth and ethernet compatibility, and a range of functions, depending on the model. The 10-inch CHIRP combo ($1,099) delivers ultra-high resolution imagery with exceptional target discrimination, the hallmark of CHIRP sonar. Units with Side Imaging and other sonar options are also available from Humminbird at this price point. See www.humminbird.com.
