UpperTxFishing Have the Helix 10 and love the satellite view.Use it quite often.Even if u fish an area often it changes over time(wind,current,storms).No better way to get out exactly where u need to than by looking at a satellite view.Of course all the secrets are gone but hey, everyone is using it.Why not evolve with the times right.Hope they make it compatible for your unit.Its a great option.

fieldsfishing Man, that's a bummer. There's a compatibility
chart I use to see which chart plotter is comparable
with which chart card. I'd keep the unit and run the nautical chart and sonar chart 1ft contours along with the advanced features or upgrade the Helix to the CHIRP version to take advantage of the satellite imagery overlay, 3D vies, shading....

Cardiac Cid The Navionics+ South region is the card I went with and works great. He just wont have the 3-D mapping

Cardiac Cid Satellite view will not work on the Helix 5 or 7 GPS. You must have the chirp version for the platinum card to work. I found that out the hard way with my Helix 5. Tell your friend sorry but that function wont work with his unit.

Mike in Friendswood The exact model is Helix 7 SI. Thanks!

Hummingbird GPS question

A friend bought a boat with a 1 year old Hummingbird GOS depthfinder Helix 7. They bought the platinum navionics chip with satelite view that is compatible with the unit. They cannot get satelite view and cannot find any info on the web to determine if the unit is capable of showing satelite view. Any help, advice, or whatever is appreciated.
