    Default Updating HB Helix Chirp Mega's

    Can I update my HELIX 10 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G2N and HELIX 12 CHIRP MEGA DI GPS G2N with the same SD card ?

    You can, but personally I would only put one update on the card at one time. These units are a little too fickle

    Make sure you have a previous update to go back to. 1.61 or 1.64 as there have been numerous problems with 1.83 or 1.84 which ever you need to use. Check the discussions on bassboat central forum.

    I haven’t either and don’t think I will take the chance. Not only is hummingbird having issues with last update so is Lowrance.

    There is no issue with the Humminbird update if you READ and FOLLOW the directions on Humminbirds website.

    Wait, wait! We are supposed to read directions? No wonder I have to rely on Rick to square me away (smile).

    Go to bbc forums and check out all the postings. Also depends on what size unit your updating, what you have networked and how it’s networked, and also if your running 360. Then decide if you want to update and be sure and check out a couple pages to find all comments and postings.

    I followed the directions exactly for my Helix 5 and my Helix 7 for the 1.83 upgrade. The Helix 7 SI G2 went perfectly, The Helix 5 DI G2 is looney tunes. the depth reading turns on and off, fluctuates all over the place, won't hold the course up setting for more than 5 minutes. Humminbird acknowledges that the 1.83 update has flaws for certain models, been on the phone with them twice. Should have backed up the original version of the OS.
