Lowrance HDS Live 12

Rig your boat with a HDS LIVE 12 and get access to the top fishfinding innovations with support for Active ImagingTM, LiveSightTM real-time sonar, StructureScan® 3D with Active Imaging and Genesis Live onscreen mapping, plus the capability to view data in a six-panel splitscreen.

A NEW LEVEL OF FISH FINDING PERFORMANCE – 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 fish finding technology, unmatched by any other fishfinder.

FISH IN REAL-TIME WITH LIVESIGHTTM SONAR – The next weapon in an angler’s arsenal, LiveSightTM real-time sonar, is the perfect addition to our 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 LiveSightTM real-time sonar. Turn all your fishing into sight fishing with LiveSightTM.

ACTIVE IMAGINGTM – Perfect for pinpointing fish-holding areas, like rock piles, standing timber, weedbeds, ditches and drop-offs, Active ImagingTM sonar delivers superior clarity and the highest resolution images of fish and structure at a longer range than any other structure-imaging technology.

FISHREVEAL – Makes fish easier to see on DownScan ImagingTM 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 1⁄2 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.

SMARTPHONE NOTIFICATIONS – 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.

LIVECASTTM SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION (HDS LIVE 16/12 ONLY) – You no longer have to choose between watching the big game and spending a day on the water with LiveCastTM smartphone integration. Watch video, view Google maps and fishing data on the high-resolution screen of your HDS LIVE display via the HDMI connection on HDS LIVE 16- and 12-inch models. View data from your smartphone and keep your eye on the fish with a LiveCastTM sonar split screen.
