My Boat Dealer contacted me yesterday to confirm all the electronics for my new boat....Helix 10 Si for the Helm and the 859CI HD DI for the Bow along with a Minn Kota 80lb Terrova I-Pilot.
I contacted Humminbird regarding wiring required so the Helix 10 would talk to the 859 (all I needed was two 720074-1 and one 720073-5) but this is where it gets confusing; she mention that the 859 could not be connected to the Minn Kota as the US2 Solar was not compatible and would destroy my 859. She also went on to say I would need a Solar unit only and to go with the Helix 9 Solar for the Bow.
More confusing is the Minn Kota site shows the 859 is compatible.
Can you clarify this for me.
