    Default help with using helix 7 pretty much new to electronics

    I have a helix 7 si gps kvd fish finder and I assume its an early version of the helix 7 because it doesnt have chirp. My problem is I dont really know how to use finders very well. Pretty new to them. But I really cant seem to find anything on you tube as far as before chirp helix 7 videos I can learn anything(its possible im mildly retarded)from. Is there anywhere local to Des Moines where a guy could get tutered(this is embarassing to have to ask)? I dont want to have to upgrade to a newer one when I dont understand this one. Plus if I do upgrade it wouldnt be brand new technology or the newest finder out there. So I dont wanna fall into having older technology I spent money on to not understand again. lol I barely understand the down imagery(actually I prolly dont understand that even) and dont even try the side imagery yet.

    Here is a older Helix 7 youtube video. I haven't watched it though so might not be what you are looking for.

    I do try to watch them. The problem seems to be I think the chirp versions of the helix 7 may have some different menu functions than mine? I may be wrong. But on some of the videos I try to follow along and the menu tabs seem to be not completly the same as mine? With the exception of a link from another members post right after yours. I found close to the same tabs with only one or two differences. Maybe I am just mildly retarded after all. lol I will keep sorting through youtube though. thanks for the info

    Plus you can go to Electronics section here on Crappie.Com main forum and put out this question, lots of folks smarter than me on there.
