    Helix is a much simpler unit to use. Solix has many more setup options and is a touch screen. Images will be the same. Sounds to me like Helix would be a better fit for you.

    My next boat will have Solix's on it. I have 3x Helix 10's on mine now.

    For marking waypoints, Solix is much, much faster.

    It’s all very confusing at times. Just trying to wade thru the muddy waters of electronics. I was at my local marine shop today when a rep from a competitor of Humminbird who told me the Solix is the unit that will be discontinued with the Apex being the top finder. I think I’ll go with the Solix as it will work better with the ulterra. Thanks y’all

    Solix does use alittle more power also than helix.
