Western Outdoor NewsPublished: Nov 01, 2018

Real-time navigation


Lowrance HDS LIVE delivers a new generation of powerful real-time navigation and fishing features including Active Imaging™ and LiveSight™ sonar, Genesis Live charting and LiveCast™ smartphone integration.

Active Imaging allows users to see structure and cover with a new level of refined detail and at a range unmatched by any other structure imaging technology.

LiveSight™ sonar delivers the most detailed views of fish as they swim in and around cover. You’ll be fishing in real-time as you watch fish react to your lure, see how they are relating to structure and gain insight into what will work, what won’t and what to do next.

HDS LIVE is incredibly easy to use and delivers real-time custom-mapping capabilities with Genesis Live Charting. Users can control contour transparency and density up to unprecedented ½-foot intervals.

Anglers can view their smartphone in full-screen or split-screen windows via HDMI connection all while their phone is safely stowed with LiveCast.

The new HDS LIVE features a sleek new low-profile design with edge-to-edge glass; a SolarMAX™ HD screen; user-programmable keys; and an optional fully-programmable Bluetooth® remote. Available in 7-, 9-, 12- and 16-inch display sizes, HDS LIVE ranges in price from $949 to $4,499.
