I picked up the ICE PTC UNB2 kit @ Fleet Farm for $220, this gives you everything you need minus the battery. Every where else it's listed for $249.99 and a lot of places don't have it in stock.
A little pricey, but I like to have the unit completely enclosed when not in use.

power cord (PC10). Cant tell from the picture. Also what software update are you using for your Helix on the ice. Thanks

Replied to your PM.


But yes, includes a power cord, gimbal knobs for both 5" and 7" units, transducer, and case.


Once powered up, you select "Ice Fishing Mode" and the unit will restart and the flasher mode will be visible. Options for cone angle, zoom, interference, are all pretty user friendly.
