To the other Helix users. I have a Helix 7 Chirp SI GPS G2 that I am having down imaging issues with. I am sure it is a user error. I have a lot of clutter on the screen. Basically a horizontal line of clutter at every foot and the detail level is terrible. I understand it is not a Mega unit but this lack of detail and clutter is not helpful at all. I am on the newest software (2.000) and was having the same problem before updating the software. I can switch to a regular sonar view and see fish and switch back to DI and do not see anything. The only way to get that horizontal clutter to disappear is to take the sensitivity down to 1 or 2 and then I can't see anything anyway. It is not networked, nothing else in use and transducer is off the back of the boat.
Do I need to make some other adjustment or selections besides sensitivity, contrast, etc.? I have tried just about everything but am not having a great deal of luck and have gone back to default setting. Pics attached from last weekend from a very clear lake with about 6 feet of clear visibility.
Thank you for the help!
Headed out yesterday morning and got my two walleye limit pretty quickly. Also picked up about three undersized walleyes.
I trolled number six blades all along the flats between the bridges and the Bay. Trolled about 1.5-1.7
Surprisingly, my best producer was the purple blade
