Default Humminbird Helix Owners-Question


Wondering a few things. Buying a used boat that has a helix 10si.

1. Plan on using navionics platinum+. While navigating if I "go to waypoint" and there is land between me and the destination such as if I am traveling cove to cove, will it route me around the land for a route that is totally on the water?

2. I am to understand that "auto-routing" is only supported on onix units. Is this the case? If so, any information that this might be added to helix units? Would it be worth it to upgrade to onix for this feature?

3. i have been a long time garmin users. For those of you who have experience with both, from a navigation only perspective, which do you prefer?

thanks in advance for your reply.
