Humminbird Helix 5 CHIRP SI GPS G2
The second generation of the wildly successful Helix 5 Sonar, the Humminbird Helix 5 G2 Sonar offers access to Humminbird’s flagship technologies, like CHIRP, AutoChart Live, and SmartStrike – all at a compelling price point. Humminbird and the Helix 5 continue to give more anglers state-of-the-art capabilities. Equipped with Humminbird’s updated operating system, the Humminbird 5 G2 Sonar family consists of five models, providing anglers with the ability to choose the features that best meet their needs.
Boasting an ultra-bright 5-inch 800H x 480V 256-color TFT display, the Humminbird Helix 5 G2 Sonar’s crystal clear display provides improved detail and easier viewing, especially for technologies, like Side Imaging and Down Imaging. The display also features a 16:9 aspect ratio, like an HDTV, but in a more compact package.
Dual Beam PLUS: Get the best of both worlds, with selectable narrow and wide beams you can view individually, or melded into one display. Features precision, 20-degree beam that is optimized for excellent bottom detail, and reveals fish hidden in bottom clutter, along with wider, 60-degree beam provides greater coverage for fish and baitfish. Beams may be viewed separately, side-by-side, or blended together for the most complete picture. 1x depth-bottom coverage allows you to find fish and structure in an area equal to your depth.
CHIRP: Allowing you to view multiple CHIRP ranges, either individually or at once, the Chirp Sonar can be dialed-in to a specific kHz, search a defined range, or cover the entire spectrum – it’s up to you. Because it uses a broader range of frequencies, Humminbrid CHIRP also deliver extreme target separation, lower noise, and richer, higher resolution images.
Side Imaging Sonar: Offering amazingly clear, picture-like images of fish, the bottom and structure, it is the ultimate structure-finding tool. Its massive coverage - 200ft from side-to-side (100ft in each direction) - allows you to scan in mere minutes what used to take hours. Its high frequency sonar (not a camera) cuts through murk with crystal clarity. (Select models only - see below)
Down Imaging Sonar: Humminbird pointed their Side Imaging technology in a new direction - straight down. Now you can see the detail of what is happening below your boat. Timber, brush, bridge pilings, rocks and any other structure will pop with stunning detail as you patrol the water. (Select models only - see below)
Switchfire: Building on their legacy of sonar innovation, Humminbird's exclusive SwitchFire puts angles in complete command, so you can control how the sonar returns appear. With two unique display modes, you can adjust to you fishing conditions on the fly. Add or remove detail: account for water depth, temperature, and turbulence; even experiment with lure presentation – all at the push of a button. SwitchFire adds a whole new dimension to 2D fish-finding. It’s one more reason Humminbird is simply, clearly, better.
