That way you'll have a Helix 10 and 9 in the stern but still have the option to run either one in the bow, and be able to afford the Vantage.
I like to have one at the bow when there are two guys in the boat. Then he/she can watch his/her depth as well. And I do move around a lot when I'm fishing. I'll fish in the back for a while, then go up front...of course when I'm alone.

But I do get what you're saying on moving the two units. I think I'll try the Vantage out first, then get another Helix this fall, unless I find a deal on craigslist or something like that.

Thanks for this post, I am going through the same dilemma right now, I am a vertical jig guy for Lakers up here in Manitoba. some times the ipilot spot lock just cant keep my line straight enough in a wind, fishing 100 feet of water vertical and I am thinking the vantage is the way to go. Thanks to everyone on the maintenance tips, not sure if people are aware but my research has brought me to a vantage cradle that helps with the stability of the unit during travel. not sure if its a gimmick or not but looks legit enough to get me to bite...

In the last month or so ive seen 2 vantages and one traxxis for sale and all have the same reason for selling, guys say they bough a new bow mount Minn Kota and no longer need the transom mount one.

Think if i wanted a 12v transom mount id be ordering a Haswing Comax or Cayman.

I have had a Vantage 101 for several years without problems, only put down the bow mount for the front HDS-8 transducer. Spotlock is nice occasionally, but day in and day out, I will use the Vantage.

My 101 Vantage basicly just fills the hole in my wave Wacker.
