EUFAULA, AL. (September 17, 2015) – For nearly a decade, ice anglers have been singing the praises of Humminbird’s rugged, real-world performance on the ice. Powerful DualBeam PLUS Sonar, customizable target line and dynamic zoom – as well 3- and 6-color displays – have proven valuable tools on hardwater via Humminbird’s ICE 35, 45 and 55 digital flasher family.

New for the 2016 ice season, meet Humminbird’s ICE HELIX 5 SONAR/GPS, which delivers three highly-formidable technologies in one unit. The high-speed LCD eliminates guesswork with a digital read-out showing your exact depth. Precision GPS helps you find and return to productive spots, while optional Humminbird LakeMaster charts give you more detail than any other map on ice.

Now add a 5-inch diagonal, 480V x 800H HD display with 1500 nit brightness for eye-popping, crystal-clear images for easy viewing, even in harsh sunlight so common to the bright winter environment.



Plus, the 16:9 aspect ratio widescreen allows running split screen view of mapping and digital flasher or sonar (graph view) to multi-task like never before.



Whether used in the portable case or via RAM mount on your ATV, UTV, snow-machine – or in the truck cab like Humminbird pro Brian “Bro” Brosdahl – the Humminbird ICE HELIX 5 raises the bar for loads of functionality on one ice machine – giving you more features and real-world performance to meet and exceed the harsh conditions of hardwater fishing.
