Humminbird® Introduces New SOLIX™ Series with Cross Touch and the Industry`s Biggest Screen Size!
The revolutionary Humminbird SOLIX Series combines 12" and 15" displays with Cross Touch® Interface alongside groundbreaking innovations like MEGA Imaging™, CHIRP Digital Sonar, AUTOCHART® Live with vegetation and bottom hardness mapping, Bluetooth® connectivity and i-Pilot® Link™ navigation.
A truly innovative product, SOLIX delivers game-changing sonar, imaging and mapping capabilities in the largest fishfinder anglers have ever seen. In true Humminbird fashion, these technologies are packaged in an easy-to-use interface and system that can make any angler better.
Cross Touch allows anglers to use the SOLIX either as a touchscreen or with the keypad for easier control in rough water conditions. Individual panes can be zoomed or moved to different screen locations based on angler preference or fishing situation.
According to professional bass angler Gerald Swindle, SOLIX gives him a serious advantage over his competition and the fish he`s after. "The size is amazing and allows me to see crucial screen information from anywhere in the boat. Plus, I can set up my panes to simultaneously show me MEGA Side Imaging, MEGA Down Imaging and how I`m oriented to key structure. I get all of that in a glance, so I know that every cast is a productive one," said Swindle.
Never-before-seen image clarity
Anglers can choose MEGA Side Imaging for an incredible view to the left and right of their boat, while MEGA Down Imaging gives crystal clear pictures of what is beneath the boat. Both carry a range that covers the most popular fishing depths.
When asked to explain MEGA Imaging, Humminbird`s brand manager Ray Schaffart said, "The screen detail is so defined that that in some cases you can literally see each individual fish and make out their head or tail in the sonar shadow. Natural bottom structures like rocks and stumps almost look like photographs, while man-made structures like shipwrecks, road grades or sunken bridges, offer up imagery down to the individual beam. After people see it, they just can`t believe it."
All SOLIX models include CHIRP Digital Sonar, firing more pulses than traditional transducers over a given period of time. More pulses mean more information, improved target separation and superior image clarity at greater depths.
The next generation in mapping
Fishing takes another huge step forward when AUTOCHART Live is used in conjunction with i-Pilot® Link™ from Minn Kota®. With both technologies cooperating, an angler can tell his Minn Kota trolling motor to "follow" a specific AUTCHART Live contour at a set speed, and with the press of a button the boat will precisely follow the exact path. Now, anglers no longer need to guess where fish-holding structure is located. They can precisely follow the weedline, bottom hardness or depth contour, and stay within easy casting distance of their target.
For plug-and-fish networking, high-speed ethernet provides easy connectivity to Humminbird 360 Imaging, Minn Kota i-Pilot Link, Humminbird CHIRP Radar, and additional SOLIX or select HELIX units. The new units are fully compatible with Humminbird LakeMaster® charts, SmartStrike™ and Navionics® Gold/HotMaps™.
Versatile mounting options
Mark Gibson, Humminbird director of R&D, summarized the new Humminbird SOLIX technology by saying "SOLIX is the combination of decades of dedicated development in everything from the transducer to the touchscreen. It`s the best of the best and the most advanced fish locator ever created.
