Garmin Adds Perspective Mode to Its Revolutionary Panoptix LiveScope Live-Scanning Sonar Arsenal

Garmin Adds Perspective Mode to Its Revolutionary Panoptix LiveScope Live-Scanning Sonar Arsenal

Garmin's new Perspective Mode feature and transducer positioning accessory for its award-winning Panoptix LiveScope™ sonar. As the first real-time scanning sonar for recreational fishing, LiveScope has transformed the way anglers fish by delivering live images of structure, bait and fish swimming around and below the boat, even while stationary. Now, in addition to the existing LiveScope Forward and Down Modes, anglers can use the new Perspective Mode for unprecedented overhead visibility that’s perfect for shallow water.

“Gone are the days of casting blindly under docks and along shorelines for schools or beds of fish thanks to the new LiveScope Perspective Mode,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “LiveScope combines two game-changing innovations – scanning sonar and live sonar – to deliver the best of both technologies. Anglers can now see and easily interpret incredibly detailed, real-time images of what’s around and below their boat from three unique vantage points, all with one easy-to-use mount.”

With the new Perspective Mode mount, the LiveScope LVS32 transducer can be easily adjusted to fit an angler’s fishing techniques and preferences, no tools required, and the chartplotter will automatically detect2 what mode is being used. Simply turn the transducer sideways to enable the new ‘top down’ perspective mode to see a wide view of what’s in front of the boat up to 50 feet away; point the transducer forward to see around the boat; and point it down to see directly below the boat. All three modes provide incredibly sharp, real-time scanning sonar images of fish swimming and moving toward or away from the boat and below the surface with remarkable target separation and clarity. LiveScope is also equipped with an attitude heading reference system (AHRS) that constantly adjusts sonar beams to compensate for boat motion, so even in rough conditions, anglers will still see a steady sonar image.

Coupled with a Panoptix LiveScope System, the Perspective Mode mount accessory is required for anglers who want to take advantage of the Perspective Mode technology. The LiveScope System includes a compact GLS 10 sonar black box with an LVS32 transducer, and a simple plug-and-play Garmin Marine Network connector for easy installation and integration with a compatible Garmin chartplotter.


The new LiveScope Perspective Mode mount is expected to be available in March 2020 and will retail for $99.99.
