Lowrance goes LIVE with new flagship fishfinders

We are proud to announce the release of the new high-performance line of fishfinder/chartplotters, HDS LIVE™.

Explore HDS Live

A significant leap forward in fishfinding technology

HDS LIVE delivers powerful real-time sonar, charting and connectivity features including Active Imaging™, LiveSight™, Genesis Live and LiveCast™ smartphone integration.

Active Imaging Sonar

See structure and cover with a new level of refined detail and at a range unmatched by any other structure imaging technology with Active Imaging. Offering industry-leading clarity without sacrificing range, it delivers unmatched image quality of structure, fish and bottom composition. Active Imaging 3-in-1 sonar combines Lowrance CHIRP, with SideScan and DownScan Imaging™ allowing anglers to quickly search fish-holding structure, and enhances FishReveal™ with higher-level clarity and target separation. Active Imaging 2-in-1 sonar includes Side and DownScan Imaging™ and is perfect for use with a separate traditional sonar transducer. Simple to use without the need to change frequencies while fishing in most conditions, Active Imaging 800 kHz provides crystal-clear detail with uncompromised range. For anglers needing to see further than 120 feet, Active Imaging can also operate at 455 kHz. Active Imaging enhancements — including greater resolution, a cleaner 3D view and a new Custom Depth Shading feature — are coming to existing StructureScan® 3D modules in Q3 of 2018 through a free software update.

LiveSight Sonar

Sonar interpretation made simple, Livesight™ sonar delivers the most detailed views of fish, down to every turn and flip of the tail, 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 on what will work, what won’t and what to do next.

Perfect for drop-shotting, vertical-jigging or lure-tracking in front of your boat, LiveSight helps you pinpoint fish locations, so you’ll know whether they are actively feeding. Mount the transducer in a front-facing position to cast toward the fish, or mount it in a down-facing position to do some vertical jigging below your boat.

When using LiveSight forward in conjunction with the Lowrance Point-1 GPS antenna, an innovative on-chart indicator shows the direction the transducer is pointed, allowing anglers to line up on a waypoint or pinpoint the structure they are trying to fish.

Genesis Live Charting

Delivering real-time, custom-mapping capabilities, HDS LIVE harnesses the power of Genesis Live charting, which uses digital depth to create depth-contour overlays on charts. Incredibly easy to use, users can control contour transparency, density of contours drawn on the screen up to unprecedented ½-foot intervals, depth and safety shading colour palettes, and more. Charts can quickly and easily be saved to an SD card for continuous use.
