Does anyone have this or another helix series?

I've narrowed my choice between lowrance 7 hdi & hummingbird Helix 5 si.
Any input on these.

Normal inshore, bay, river fishing.

I had a Humminbird 597 CI HD and a buddy of mine had a comparable Lowrance unit HDS5- I think). After a fair amount of experience with both- I'd probably chose a Lowrance unit if I was choosing between the two. The interface was nicer and the sonar just seemed to perform better. To be fair, I thought the GPS functionality was a little better on the Humminbird.

Mike;

Didn't see your post in time to ask about cost, got my new HDI 7 yesterday. Caught it on sale. Can't wait for the rain to stop.
