    It’s fun to imagine the Humminbird side imaging sonar detail I’ve enjoyed on a Solix 10 this season at Apex screen sizes and resolution. Wow. And I did get some recordings from the Solix that will make an interesting video (I think).

    Humminbird has been slow to gain acceptance in the saltwater markets, but they really do offer good bang for the buck. A family members boat has a Helix 8 (on a sailboat no less) and I have a 5 bought on sale that will go in my little runabout. Nice to see them coming out with more and more for bigger boats.

  3. love the humminbird range , but they are rather expensive here in australia and have had a lot of teething issues in “my” salt water fishing area.
    would be interested to see these systems paired up with 2kw transducers however.

      Interesting. Here in the US they are really common in places like Bass Pro shops and Cabelas which drives the pricing down. My Helix 5 with GPS was around $250.00 and I think the 7 My family member has was around $400.

    I’m guessing that Humminbird intended to debut Apex at METS (where, sadly, I should be walking the aisles right now). I think they have a surprisingly active presence in Europe and beyond. And, by the way, METS Connect starts on Dec. 10, and we did get a fairly large and interesting group of entries for the DAME R&D Excellence in Adversity Award (but not APEX):
