Humminbird ICE HELIX 5 CHIRP G2 Reviews:
Brought it out fishing several times since receiving it and absolutely love it. Reads well, easy to use and all around changes the fishing experience. Highly recommend this unit.
I’ve used a Vexilar FL12 for years. Now that my daughter is old enough and interested in coming out on the ice with me, I needed another finder. Instead of buying another finder of the same kind, I bought this. The clarity is far better. Add in the GPS, autochart live and 10,000 basic maps… it by far surpasses the vex. And I can put it on the boat during open water. When we are in the ice house, the vex stays in the case and we fight over who gets to use the bird when we are outside hopping around. Very happy with the purchase.
unit is awesome
Owned a traditional flasher before this and was skeptical. This unit is awesome with multiple views and combinations it really makes finding fish easier. And you can mark your hot spots on the gps to boot.
a game changer
I bought this last winter and used it many times. It has great detail and comes in real time. I feel it was a game changer for me, it also has great battery life.
I love it honestly best fish finder I’ve used so many options
Awesome unit and very easy to use. I’ve had the ice helix out a handful of times so far and it works great. The gps is nice to have an idea of the depth of water you are in before you drill through the ice and to set a marker so the next time you can fish the same spot. The sonar modes also work great and are very user friendly.
Quality, Great ice fishing tool
I’m the type of guy that lives in Northern Michigan and is sad to see the ice melt.
I’m very happy with this product. It gives you the traditional fish locating abilities of a traditional flasher, along with many upgrades. Now I spend less time locating fish and more time trying to get them to bite.
This is very good quality for the price. If you want ice fishing to be your new favorite hobby, this product us for you!
Awesome customer service
Awesome customer service, ordered the Helix 5 and the hardware was missing to put it together.Called and talked to a polite customer service agent and they had me another new one shipped to me in 3 days. Dealer has my business for sure.
Crushed charger missing float.
Got product from 3rd party through amazon by boxybay. Charger was destroyed and missing the float. Might just buy cheap universal charger to avoid the 1 week return investigation… i’m sure it was just mishandled through shipping. I’m screwed on the float. other than that seems ok
Best one out there
This unit is the best unit in its class. I like it more than my fl-8
Insure you purchase the carrying case to protect the screen and plastic brackets.
The ICE45 is easy to use and very accurate. I’ve used it twice and I’m not disappointed. What makes this unit affordable is the $45.00 rebate.
Will change your ice fishing forever.
This is a great entry level unit. I have had it out 4 times since getting mine, and I’ve been catching more fish than ever. Just had to put it on the charger after 4 full days of use, so the battery life is pretty good.
Best ice fishing tool I have used
Very responsive, great graph, lots of options, and all season capabilities
Love this unit.
Used in large ice fishing tournaments and have zero interference. Comes with all the hardware to mount onto you boat and everything you need for ice fishing. Screen and jig reaction time is instant. Battery lasts all day. All the updates are done through Bluetooth on your phone, which is great and easy. Ice fishing setup fits in a 5-gallon bucket.
The basic lake depth charts that come with the unit are not great for Minnesota lakes. You will need to purchase a better lake chip if you are looking for more detail.
Want big fish??
Want big fish?My 15 year old grandson has used this many times since he received it a month ago. He really likes it.
cant beat it for the price
I love this for the price and the quality and it works very well! my 12 year old daughter don’t want to go without it now that she used it I will more than likely be buying another one for myself! lol
For what I paied for this on a deal day I’m so happy I didn’t pass it up it works great.
Garbage product/ horrible customer service .
I’ll never buy hummingbird again. Bought this unit en route to a ice fishing trip. It was defective out of the box. Then they said they’d ship me a rental to the cabin I was staying at. Never shipped it. Now to compensate me they want to send me a tshirt and upgrade me to a model $50 more. Such a waste of time. I’ll return to bass pro n buy a lowrance like my buddies did
More bang for your buck
Easy to read, great battery life and more options for the money.
I waited to do this review because I wanted to test it out to the fullest. I am extremely pleased with this flasher and I will continue to purchase from this merchant.
Cheap and worth it
Great ice fishing flasher for its money!
Husband was excited to get it, just waiting for winter!
We haven’t been able to use this yet since it is an ice fishing fish finder. Will comment when we can use it.
Flasher is reading backwards. Set up was easy but isn’t working properly. Anyone have this issue?
I been wanting 1 for a wild Finally got it not Disappointing at all
Great flasher! I love this. Great features and battery life.
Do not buy this unit
Right out of the box some of the numbers don’t fully show on the display. Contact Humminbird and they want me to send it in for service. Never been used and now I have to send it in for service. Never, ever, will I buy another Humminbird product.
