RACINE, Wis., October 1, 2020 – Since their initial release, anglers at all levels have enjoyed the fish-finding advantages of the Humminbird® HELIX® series of fish finders. Now, Humminbird is introducing the fourth generation (G4N) HELIX models, delivering more technology than ever, with a wide range of features and screen sizes suitable for any fishing application.
The new HELIX G4N Series gives anglers the latest in innovative imaging technology, with MEGA Imaging+™, and a variety of screen sizes from 8-inch to the new 15.4-inch display, ensuring there is a HELIX G4N to fit any angler’s needs. The new HELIX 15 model boasts a giant 15.4”, ultra-bright and crystal-clear display to see all of the details provided by exclusive Humminbird sonar, navigation and networking technologies.
“Humminbird has always been dedicated to putting the most innovative technologies in the hands of anglers, and the new HELIX G4N Series does just that,” said Matt Cook, Humminbird Brand Manager. “With the introduction of HELIX G4N models, anglers have the ability to focus on productive water and catch more fish.”
These new fish finders come equipped with the best sonar and mapping options on the water, including MEGA Imaging+™, and Dual Spectrum CHIRP 2D sonar, and are compatible with Humminbird’s exclusive MEGA 360 Imaging®. Built-in GPS and Humminbird Basemap provide depth contours and navigational aids for all continental U.S. coastal waters and over 10,000+ U.S. lakes. Premium chart options from Humminbird include LakeMaster® and CoastMaster™ charts, which provide exclusive compatibility and features to Humminbird users. Additionally, HELIX G4N models are also compatible with Navionics® charts, providing Humminbird users the widest selection of charts available, ensuring they are covered with premium chart options no matter where they fish. For anglers looking for an extra edge, all HELIX G4N models will include AutoChart® Live, allowing anglers to easily create their own custom maps in real time. Simply turn the feature on and watch as depth contours and even vegetation and bottom hardness layers appear on-screen.
New to the HELIX G4N Series, built-in NMEA 2000® and Wi-Fi come standard. All models have a dedicated NMEA 2000 networking port built-in to support the connection to compatible accessories to display information like engine data, vessel sensors and virtually any NMEA 2000 compatible accessory. Built-in Wi-Fi will support additional features.
Packed with Ethernet networking and Bluetooth® functionality, the new HELIX G4N models have been designed to work seamlessly with the One-Boat Network™. This exclusive pairing of Humminbird, Minn Kota® and Cannon® fishing products allows anglers to integrate compatible fish finders, trolling motors, shallow water anchors, downriggers and more, so that anglers can find, stay on, and catch more fish. With One-Boat Network, anglers can control connected Minn Kota i-Pilot® Link™ trolling motors, Talon™ and Raptor™ shallow water anchors and Cannon downriggers right from their Humminbird unit. Select HELIX G4N models are also compatible with optional MEGA 360 Imaging transducers and Built-in MEGA Imaging on select Minn Kota trolling motors. Additionally, leverage the Humminbird FishSmart™ app for wireless software updates and LakeMaster map downloads, as well as convenient connection with Humminbird Technical Service.
The HELIX G4N family consists of five screen sizes (8-inch, 9-inch, 10.1-inch, 12.1-inch and new 15.4-inch). All screen sizes are fully networkable, including Ethernet, Bluetooth, NMEA 2000 and Wi-Fi, and offer models with multiple sonar technology options.
