Im refurbing a Tracker 175 and looking for a "reasonable" console with SI that my not so good eyes can see. I have really beat it down to these two in the $1K range and may even splurge for the Helix mega model for the extra $300. I have seen positives for both sides in tutorials, but have no hands on experience with either. I don't plan on linking anything, just want good SI usage and the ability to mark fish quickly in SI mode. It seems the touch screens are the way to go, but they're not so easy for me using them in a vehicle or while there is movement, so Im not sure. The TI looks like a great unit and may be more of a "complete" unit for my needs. Im just a weekend guy and spending more than I should.
Im not brand loyal and sure don't want a brand war to happen in the thread. I just need a little help from the guys that may have experience with both or maybe have used an opposing brand in a buddy's boat or something.
Thanks ahead guys
