Posted by Honey Creek Tackle on Apr 22nd 2021
Big enough for use as a standalone display, but compact enough to fit consoles with limited space, the HDS LIVE 7offers access to the latest Lowrance® fishfinding innovations with support for Active Imaging™, LiveSight™ real-time sonar, StructureScan® 3D with Active Imaging and Genesis Live onscreen mapping.
Rig your boat with an HDS LIVE 12 and get access to the top fishfinding innovations with support for Active Imaging™, LiveSight™ real-time sonar, StructureScan® 3D with Active Imaging and Genesis Live onscreen mapping, plus the capability to view data in a six-panel splitscreen.
You've Never Fished Like This Before
With HDS LIVE, we took the most popular fishfinder series on the professional fishing circuit and made it even better for all anglers with a sleek, new design, faster processor, best-ever built-in suite of HDS navigation tools and support for a wide array of new fishfinding technology, unmatched by any other fishfinder.
Prepare yourself for a new level of fishfinding performance with HDS LIVE, which includes built-in Lowrance® CHIRP sonar, support for Active Imaging™, StructureScan® 3D with Active Imaging and revolutionary LiveSight™ Real-Time Sonar. Equipped with the best set of navigation tools ever built into a fishfinder/chartplotter display, HDS LIVE features preloaded C-MAP® US Enhanced Inland and Coastal mapping, automatic routing support and new Genesis Live onscreen mapping offering precision real-time mapping, down to ½-foot contours.
Fish in Real-Time with LiveSight™ Sonar
The next weapon in an angler’s arsenal, LiveSight real-time sonar is the perfect addition to America’s Number One Fishfinder.
Take your HDS LIVE system to the next level with live views of bait and fish movements. Watch fish react to your bait and know what is working, what isn't and what to do next. Set up a two-panel splitscreen and find the fish with Active Imaging, then watch fish hit your bait – as it happens – with LiveSight real-time sonar.
Turn all your fishing into sight fishing with LiveSight.
Perfect for pinpointing fish-holding areas like rockpiles, standing timber, weedbeds, ditches and drop-offs, Active Imaging™ sonar delivers superior clarity and the highest resolution images of fish and structure at a longer range than any other structure-imaging technology.
Transducers sold separately.
Makes fish easier to see on DownScan Imaging™ by combining CHIRP sonar fish targets with superior, high-resolution views of bottom detail, structure and bait fish. FishReveal removes the need to display CHIRP sonar and DownScan Imaging in a two-panel split-screen.
Mapping in Real-Time
Update the mapping of your favorite fishing spot or map unmapped areas with ½ foot contours – in real time – on the screen of your fishfinder/chartplotter with C-MAP Genesis Live. Genesis Live uses digital depth to create high-definition maps featuring 1/2-foot contours. Target key fishing areas with Genesis Live maps, which makes it easy to find areas where fish like to hide, like drop-offs, points, ditches and more. A truly customizable mapping experience, Genesis Live gives you control over contour transparency, contour density, depth and safety shading color palettes, and more. Create your Genesis Live maps in real-time, saving them as you go to a microSD card.
Keep your eyes on the fish and never miss an important text or call with smartphone notifications built into HDS LIVE. Turn off phone notifications for uninterrupted fishing, or leave them on to receive popup notifications on the screen of your HDS LIVE display.
