Ice Helix 7 Gen4 - Mega Live Compatible?
« on: Nov 30, 2022, 07:00 PM »
Today I placed an order for the "Ice Helix 7 Chirp GPS Gen4 All Season" unit that comes with the ice shuttle as well as ram mounts for using on a vessel in the summer. Being that I've never owned any sort of fishing electronics, I was watching some videos on how to set it up and use is. One review I was watching the guy in the video stated that the power harness had the plugs to add a mega live. Does that mean this model is mega compatible? Or is it just the same harness used in the 9" megalive bundles but not actually useful to me. I can't find anything on Humminbirds site about whether its compatible or what additional items I would have to purchase to make it a megalive unit.

I'm pretty sure Mega Live is only compatible with graphs 9" and up.

This is off Humminbirds website - HELIX®️ 8-12 G3N & HELIX 7-15 G4N models (Must be MEGA Side Imaging or MEGA Down Imaging model). So, unfortunately if yours is only "chirp" it will not run MegaLive.
