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 (Transducers Sold Separately)
      • Perfect for pinpointing fish-holding areas like rock piles, standing timber, weed beds, 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. The HDS LIVE 12 is compatible with Active Imaging 3-in-1 (CHIRP, SideScan, and DownScan) and Active Imaging 2-in-1 (SideScan and DownScan).
    • 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 baitfish. FishReveal removes the need to display CHIRP sonar and DownScan Imaging in a two-panel split-screen.
    • C-MAP Genesis Live
      • Update the mapping of your favorite fishing spot or map unmapped areas with 1/2-ft. contours—in real-time—on the screen of your fish finder with C-MAP Genesis Live. Genesis Live uses digital depth to create high-definition maps featuring 1/2-ft. contours. Target key fishing areas with Genesis Live maps, which make 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 micro SD card.
