    Not uncommon for people to spend a good lump on a unit...

    I just thought you were referring to the question that agbuckhunter asked about the difference between a 688ci HD and 688ci HD DI.

    Where did you order your Helix 7 from, and how long is it going to take?

    I usually buy my stuff out of NC (Universal Mania) and they ship pretty fast most of the time.

    I bought a helix 5 for the boat. Looking at picking up the ice ducer and throwing it into an old zercom case.

    Ah ...

    LMK how that goes - wondered if they could be a trusted seller or not.

    Usually when prices are that good, there are sometimes issues...

    Unless your eyes are pretty good, I wouldn't spend the money on a 5...

    The screen height is actually only about 2.5" - too small for me!

    That Helix 5 is small! Not much bigger than an iPhone. Especially in a boat when you a couple more feet away from it. 800 series or bigger for me personally.

    You might search elsewhere Paul.

    The reason it's hard to find is the 1st generation Helix are discontinued and the "G2 and G2N models are coming out.

    The "Big C" does show them in "limited" stock.

    Even HB has none on their own site for sale.

    FWIW the actual screen height on an H7 is 3.625" a much larger display.
    Neither size in the series includes mapping - I like LakeMaster if it covers what you need - Navionics works well also, I run the NAV+ card with all of Michigan loaded for my 688DI most of the time.
