I just purchased a Terrova. Had a Lowrance in the front, replaced that with a Hummingbird Helix 5. This is all new technology for me and I ‘m worried that I won’t be able to figure it out. Does You Tube do a good job explaining?
Thanks BB, all great information. Had to change my onboard charger from a two to a three bank.
Yup the terrova is pretty straight forward until you get to saving tracks and saving spotlock locations then you might want to check you tube or the manual or even call customer service I've done all and got my questions answered. As far as the helix I got the 7 but no different it will take a day of fishing to fine tune but once you learn the setup its real easy. You can check you tube before you go to know what to expect. The helix will need a update from time to time which can be a headache but you tube or customer service can walk you through it. I have had my terrova and helix 7 for over 5 years with no complaints. The first thing with the helix when setting it up is to change from angler to custom mode then the rest is personal preference. Also a lakemaster chip is nice to have for the helix.also for the terrova I have never used the foot pedal I just use the remote only. You might also want a onboard charger but depends on your setup.
