NEW Humminbird ION and ONIX Series
Humminbird® Unveils Most Powerful Electronics Yet
Humminbird ONIX and ION bring bluewater and freshwater anglers unparalleled power via user-friendly Cross Touch™ technology
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL. (October 31, 2013) – Besides creating leading-edge products like 360 Imaging™, Humminbird® engineers have also been hard at work over the past two years developing a radical new platform that changes everything you know about fishing electronics.
Please welcome ONIX and ION, introduced today, Thursday, October 31st, at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. (http://www.showmanagement.com/fort_lauderdale/event/)
“Humminbird ONIX and ION offer a rich user interface that is completely customizable to the individual needs of anglers and boaters, while remaining extremely easy-to-use via a full complement of multi-touch capabilities,” says Dale Logue, Director of Marketing, Humminbird. “The included feature list and available add-ons is unparalleled in the industry and make the units the most versatile, powerful and user friendly on the water.”
At the core of the new units, users will discover all the advantages of powerful Humminbird sonar, advanced navigation and Humminbird imaging technologies right at their fingertips, courtesy of a radical new take on Touch Screen operation called Cross Touch™.
While some touch units limit operation to finger pointing, Humminbird’s Cross Touch offers Multi-Gesture Control, which lets users navigate menus and activate features with a tap, swipe or pinch. Cross Touch also minimizes false touches from splashing water.
From marking waypoints with your finger, naming those waypoints via a virtual keyboard, to zooming in on fish-holding structure or chart locations for a better look, or swiping and dragging screens to create custom views, fishfinder use has never been more intuitive than this.
But ONIX And ION are more than touch screen units. They also feature redundant, traditional touchpad controls for complete control in bad weather.
The ONIX family currently comprises four models, offering anglers the benefits of powerful Cross Touch with the sonar, imaging and navigation features they need most. All units feature 1024H x 768V best-in-class screen resolution on 10.4- or 8.4-inch high-definition XGA LCD Touch Displays with multi-gesture support and bright graphics readable in harsh sunlight.

Humminbird ION10 and ION12 multi-function displays bring bluewater anglers the centerpiece for building an expandable platform of networked devices and technologies—and viewing all via the ION’s high-resolution, easy-to-use 10.4- or 12.1-inch high-definition XGA LCD Touch Displays. From Side Imaging, Down Imaging, 360 Imaging, black box CHIRP broadband sonar to IP cameras, there’s full NMEA 0183/2000 compatibility to integrate, control and monitor the data you need to catch more fish and stay safe on the water.
Users can customize their ION platform to include Humminbird RADAR, Autopilot, wireless connectivity, even a built-in web browser to monitor weather and stay connected miles from the dock. Included TriFuel Cartography gives both ION and ONIX users exclusive access to Navionics®, C-MAP® by Jeppesen® and Humminbird base maps out of the box. Users can also add on AutoChart to map their own waters, state-of-the-art C-MAP 4D High Resolution Bathymetry by Jeppesen or Navionics Gold/HotMaps and Platinum+.

I just got a chance to chat a couple minutes with the Humminbird Experts on the NEW ION and ONIX.
They will NOT be able to Network with the Current Models. Different Networking Systems inside the units. ION can Network only with another ION, ONIX with another ONIX.
BUT there are changes to the Networking these units can do!
* Map Sharing Between the same series ONIX to ONIX or ION to ION. You'll only need 1 Mapping Card for both Units.
* Transducer Sharing: You can buy a Combo Model and a Side Imaging Model and get Side Imaging on both models. Only available in the same series too. But you can buy an 8" SI ONIX and share SI to the 10" ONIX (Non-SI)
* 360 Imaging and iPilot Link will be able to connect via Ethernet
* Wireless Internet can be generated thru WiFi connection at Ports or Via Cellular Devices that provide Hot Spots. Smartphones, iPads, etc.
* ION Series is a black box networking system that is very popular in the Bluewater Boats.
* ONIX Series is more plug and play networking system popular in Fresh and Bluewater Boats.
Stay tuned he had to get back to work as they are slam packed in the both with people asking questions on the new products from Humminbird! Said he would give me the full run down once he gets back to the office and things settle back down.

The NEW ONIX will feature a NEW "All in One" Digital Transducer that provides Side Imaging, Down Imaging and 2D Sonar plus Temp from separate crystals from a single transducer. If a previous SI owners wishes to upgrade there will be an adapter cable to use the current HDSI transducer with the ONIX but will not see as great as details due to the HDSI being a Analog Transducer and the All in One a Digital Transducer.

The ION will offer several Transducer Options with Black Box style technology. This link to a Video of the ION in action will help you see the CrossTouch Technology in action plus more on the ION Transducer Options:
