Humminbird HELIX 7 Review


This is a state-of-the-art fishing finder manufactured by Humminbird, which uses sonar (Sound Navigation Ranging) technology to detect or locate items underwater acoustically.


It does not matter whether you are venturing into new fishing waters, or you are fishing familiar water in one of your old standby fishing honey holes. The Humminbird Helix 7 will help you find and catch more BIG fish.

The review will focus on the Humminbird Helix 7 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G3 fish finder, the latest version of the Helix 7 series. It comes after the Helix 7 CHIRP GPS G3 and the Helix 7 CHIRP MEGA DI GPS G3. They upgraded the CHIRP GPS G3 to the CHIRP MEGA DI GPS G3 by introducing MEGA Down Imaging to achieve underwater clarity below the boat.

The Mega SI GPS G3 is the best because it also includes MEGA Side Imaging that provides crystal-clear viewing on both sides of the boat up to 125 feet as well as MEGA Down Imaging.

This Humminbird fish finder still comes equipped with the regular features but offers added features like Ethernet and Bluetooth networking capabilities and dual-spectrum CHIRP sonar.
These guarantee you will have a crystal-clear view of the terrain below you and on both sides of your vessel, much better than the standard sonars we are accustomed to.
These features in the Humminbird Helix 7 offer the fisherman a ton of benefits such as a full HD crystal-clear view of the terrain beneath you and both sides of your boat. This is obviously much better than the standard fish finder sonars you may be used to using.

The sonar is powered by a Humminbird proprietary CHIRP transducer, which unlocks the images with three times more clarity, and gives you clearly defined fish images, and a visual sense of the terrain and any fish-holding structures beneath your fishing boat. The Humminbird Helix 7 fish finder is also able to tell the depth of the water and the presence of any structural objects.

Just one of the unique features of the Humminbird Helix 7 is that it comes with a standard and built-in Humminbird basemap that will help you navigate the new and existing fishing areas, and helps you anticipate where the buoys, hazards, marinas, depth, and day markers are, as well as other important landmarks and features of the waters you intend to fish.

The library is full of over 10,000 maps that help you navigate the area and plot your path with respect to your chosen areas of interest.

The Humminbird Helix 7 fish finder puts you the fisherman in control of all of the functionalities via the push of a button on the control head, and a brilliantly lit whole 7” high-resolution color screen to view both the terrain and the maps.

The Humminbird Helix 7 fish finder allows you to control the type of feedback you receive from the fish finder sonar. Also, there is plenty enough room to accommodate the pre-loaded split screens for different views – make the Humminbird Helix 7 fish finder the right choice for any fisherman looking for a top-notch fish finder.


The Complete Humminbird Helix 7 Fish Finder Package includes the transducer, its mounting hardware, a power cable, and a gimbal mounting bracket that will help you to keep the fish finder horizontal at all times.
