https://claz.org/classifieds?q=Humminbird+Helix+7 where are you at? What’s budget?
I am looking to buy a smaller side view fishfinder. I figure someone has upgrgaded and may have one they want to sell.
Check out overtons or gander mountain. Just picked one up myself. 349.99 sale price plus $150 In rebates.
I will tell you this.................save your pennies, and buy a bigger one. I love my helix 7, but it was way, way too small. I purchased it a year ago.
I just purchased a Helix 9 to replace it. I'm not at a total loss, because I put the helix 7 on the front.........
I was debating on buying a second 698ci because it's relatively cheap with the rebates. After playing with this thing in simulation mode I can see how a bigger screen will be worth the extra money. You have to look really close on the small screen to identify fish. I think I'll take your advice and save my pennies for a bigger unit to put on the console and stick this one up front. I'm not disappointed with it by any means though. It's way fancier than anything I've ever had before and at $230 after tax and rebates I think it's a decent purchase.
