This is our Better Connected™ Yamaha Humminbird Helix NMEA Bundle.
This is the kit for you, if you own a 2006 or newer Yamaha Outboard that is a 4 stroke, 25HP+ engine and a Humminbird Helix Fish finder.
This Better Connected™ Yamaha Humminbird Helix NMEA Bundle contains everything you need to connect your fish finder to your engine, EXCEPT the proprietary Humminbird cables.
Some Helix models require one additional inexpensive cable. Others require a cable to adapt the NMEA signals to the Humminbird Ethernet networking system, but that type of installation allows the NMEA data to be shared on all the fish finders on the Ethernet network.
So, you will also need the following, depending on your specific Helix Model (See below):
Additional Cables Needed:
HELIX 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15 G4N: You need to purchase one of the Humminbird PN 720114-1.
You can also easily expand this network later if you install more electronics on your boat that has NMEA 2000 capability.
With this kit, you will see fuel consumption rate, oil pressure, engine temperature, RPM, alternator voltage, fuel pressure, water pressure, and engine hours.
You can add the Yamaha digital tach and our NMEA cable. Then you can actually change the trolling RPM of your engine to slow down or speed up trolling. Check your engine model for variable speed trolling feature.
Complete kits also available for other engine and fishfinder combinations:
