Default I link to hummingbird graph

I am looking at purchasing a minn Kota I pilot with I link and was wondering on what hummingbird graph with finder would be the best to pair it with.

I would like something easy to use as technology and I don't get along all that well. I would consider myself an avid fisherman (i get out lots but I only fish our local walleye tourney each year). I target mostly walleye, crappie and trout (if that makes a difference) and I he deepest water that I head out on is 100f. I fish both crystal clear and murky (clay water). I am in Ontario Canada

I have very little experience with finders/graphs...but ya gotta make the leap somwhere!

Any insight, recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Take care,

Ben

Any HB that has ethernet for a feature will work. Your budget will dictate which one. Bob

I have an I-pilot link and HB 1159 and 898s. which all work well together, But if I were buying now I would get a Helix 9 or larger because they have auto chart.

Thanks Ozark bob and pale Ryder...I'm guessing that the 1100 series are going to be discontinued as there are some real good deals on them out there

I have the helix 9 si linked to my terrova and it works great. The new screens on the Helix series are awesome. Very easy to see --even in direct sunlight. Auto chart is good too. Helix 10 would be nice but I couldn't see $500 for one inch bigger screen. Especially when the 9 and 10 units themselves are exact same size. But if you can swing it --get the 10. You'll be happy with either one. Good luck.

I'm running an 1198 and 858 combo with Ethernet expansion to my Ulterra. Seems to work as designed so can't complain.

Was in the same boat. My research led me to the Helix 9 SI, wanted the link connection with autochart live

I have the i pilot link with an 898si and a 859, however like pale ryder if I were buying now I'd get a helix 9 or maybe 10. I can think of a lot of places where I could use auto chart. I haven't used one outdoors, but looking at the screens on the showroom floor, they are very bright.
