You've Never Fished Like This Before

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 the new ActiveTarget™ Live Sonar. Equipped with the best set of navigation tools ever built into a fishfinder/chartplotter display, HDS LIVE features preloaded C-MAP® Contour™+ inland and coastal charts, automatic routing support and Genesis Live onscreen mapping offering precision real-time mapping, down to ½-foot contours.

Target Fish Live with New ActiveTarget™ Live Sonar

Fish smarter when you know exactly what fish are doing – in real time – with ActiveTarget™ Live Sonar. Enjoy high-resolution views of fish movements, tracking them as they swim in and around cover. Watch their real-time response to your lure and you will know if your current technique is working or if it’s time to switch things up.

Active Imaging

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.

FishReveal

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.
