Humminbird recently released the new Humminbird Helix G2N series that comes with a variety of new features including including, MEGA Imaging™ with CHIRP digital sonar delivers, AUTOCHART Live updates and Bluetooth capability.
The Humminbird Helix G2N models have been shipping for a few weeks and the Helix 12 G2N just started shipping around the first of the year. I opened my front door on New Years Day and found one of the very first Helix 12 G2N’s to hit the street sitting on my doorstep making for a great new year!
I posted a few pictures of the Humminbird Helix 12 G2N on social media and had a TON of questions about it so I decided to do a quick unboxing video (which I’ve never done before).
In this weeks Catfish Edge video I unbox the Helix 12 G2N, walk through what’s in the box as well as some of the details on features and upgrades of the parts and components from the Humminbird Onix I’ve been running on my SeaArk ProCat 240.
I’ve also included some of the first screenshots from the Helix 12 G2N right after I got it installed in this weeks video and the images are nothing short of amazing!
What’s the big deal with the Humminbird G2N?
Here’s some of the new Helix G2N features:
MEGA Imaging™ with CHIRP digital sonar: This gives unprecedented detail through a sonar frequency nearly 3-times traditional 455 kHz frequencies. Humminbird is the first to take sonar fish finders to this megahertz range, giving the clearest, sharpest underwater views with MEGA Side Imaging and MEGA Down Imaging,
AUTOCHART Live: Now with vegetation and bottom density mapping . AutoChart Live allows you to map your favorite bodies of water to find where the fish hide. Now, Humminbird has expanded this technology even further. In addition to mapping depth, AUTOCHART Live gives you the ability to map aquatic vegetation and changing bottom hardness.
Bluetooth: HELIX units feature built-in Bluetooth, allowing you to sync smartphones and other devices, delivering text messages, missed calls, signal strength and battery life right on the Humminbird display.
These are all three features that I’m MEGA excited about and I’ll be showing some on the water demonstrations of me catching catfish using these new technologies as well as more videos covering these features more in depth in the weeks and months to come.
