Humminbird Introduces HELIX 7


EUFAULA, AL. (July 1, 2015) – This year the Humminbird HELIX 5 shattered all expectations for features and price, literally selling out at retailers across the globe. As anglers hit the water with HELIX, feedback was consistently positive … even passionate.

Now welcome the HELIX 7 Series, the latest addition to the HELIX family of compact-format fishfinders, which features a best-in-class, widescreen color display and powerful, professional-grade features.

One look at the HELIX 7 Series and there’s no mistaking its Humminbird DNA. Packed to the gills with technology, the HELIX 7 is easy to use, dependable under any circumstances and unbelievably clear, bright and fast—not to mention built right here in the U.S.A.

“In Humminbird’s history there have been a lot of successes, but HELIX 5 was immensely popular, bringing anglers of all walks advanced features at an unprecedented price. HELIX 7 is all that and with a larger, brighter and glare-free display. Our engineers really raised the bar with HELIX 7 in terms of features and value at this size. We feel the HELIX 7 Series will be equally popular,” says Humminbird brand manager, Jeff Kolodzinski.

Even in full sun, the jaw-dropping 480×800 HD resolution and 1500 nit brightness glass-bonded display delivers a clear and precise picture of fish and fish-holding structure. Plus, the ultra-wide 16:9 ratio screen gives anglers ample room for split-screen views, making fishing and navigating even easier. The built-in quick-release gimbal mount makes angle adjustments and removal easy.

The HELIX 7 Series currently comprises five models to meet the individual needs of anglers and boaters. All units feature X-Press Menu System keypad control, 480Vx800H x 7-inch, 256-color TFT display, and allows for gimbal mounting, or in-dash mounting with optional kit. International models support 200/50kHz. Optional 50 kHz transducers are available for extreme deep-water use.

When what you need is a 2D look at the world directly below your boat, opt for the HELIX 7 Sonar model, featuring SwitchFire Sonar for flexibility in challenging fishing situations, including outstanding target separation and clear returns of cover, structure, fish and even your bait.

When details matter, the HELIX 7 DI delivers. The 16:9 widescreen format lets you view two screens at once, making it an ideal choice for anglers who want to compare sonar returns. Split-screen views of Down Imaging and SwitchFire Sonar make for an unstoppable fishfinding combination, giving anglers an unparalleled view of fish and fish-holding structure. Down Imaging range good to an amazing 350 feet with add-on capability to 600 feet.

Locate fish, save their whereabouts and easily retrace your steps over and over again. The HELIX 7 Sonar GPS gives you the advantage of running split-screen views of sonar and cartography. You’ll see all that lurks beneath the surface on a clear, bright and 7-inch wide display. Internal GPS guides you back to as many as 2,500 waypoints and 45 routes. A single, micro SD card slot runs Humminbird LakeMaster, AutoChart and AutoChart Pro, as well as Navionics Gold/HotMaps. When “spot on the spot” fishing is the key to success, this is the ideal unit.

Discover fish and structure, then track their every move with the HELIX 7 DI GPS. See fish and vertical lure presentations by viewing Down Imaging and SwitchFire Sonar side-by-side on the wide, 16:9 display. The reliable, internal GPS offers 2,500 waypoints and 50 routes, so you can return to your most productive spots time and time again. A single, micro SD card slot delivers Humminbird LakeMaster, AutoChart and AutoChart Pro, as well as Navionics Gold/HotMaps. But features built-in UniMap for easy navigation right out of the box.

Sometimes, you need every possible weapon at your disposal. Days like these call for the HELIX 7 SI GPS and its full arsenal of amazing technologies, including Side Imaging, Down Imaging and SwitchFire Sonar. The seven-inch widescreen is the perfect canvas for your choice of split-screen views. The single card slot accommodates Humminbird LakeMaster, AutoChart and AutoChart Pro, as well as Navionics Gold/HotMaps. Leading-edge technology has never been closer in reach. Finally, a mid-sized fishfinder unit that offers all the pros’ favorite features and performance, but doesn’t break the bank.
