    Just installed this on my boat. First off the pics can be deceiving the unit is not as big as it appears. Having said that for a $500 unit I am very pleased. The screen is still big enough to see In great detail. It has all the features of a bigger unit without the cost. I plan on purchasing a map card for it as well. Love this unit.

    Not very impressed, slow processor screen image is not very good, GPS slow to get your position, bought this because of two salesmen at Gander Mountain recommending this over the Lowrance that I had intended to purchase but when I arrived at the store was out of stock. I bought this off of Amazon because it was $50.00 less than Gander Mountain. I used this to replace a 5 year old Lowrance 332 that stopped working, the sonar and GPS are not as good as the older Lowrance model, this unit is mounted up front on the trolling motor but the screen is to small to use without bending over to look at screen. Most likely going to replace with a new Lowrance. Haven’t tried Hummingbird since 2005 very disappointed

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:49 Mins

    This is my first side imaging sonar. Initially, I thought that the SI was not working but after help from Humminbird found out that it was due to technology limitations that I had not been aware of. For best imaging, boat speed should be around 3-4 mph, with calm water, and minimal side-to-side rocking. The boat should be moving approximately straight, and the chart speed should be matched to the boat speed. Such conditions are not present every day in the Gulf but when they are, the imaging works and is far more informative than traditional sonar. Included below are a video of my marina’s channel, and an image from an ‘artificial reef’, an area with concrete rubble. The recordings include the GPS coordinates, and allow creating waypoints while reviewing the scans at home.
    BTW, per my discussion with Humminbird support, the processors used in the Helix 5 SI and 7 SI are the same, and other than the size of the display, there are no substantive differences between the two units.
