With Mega Live Imaging, anglers can now see live sonar images in real time with the unbelievable clarity of MEGA Imaging. It’s Mega Imaging in motion.

It’s Mega Live in Motion

-U.S. Patent-pending technology provides the clearest views of your bait and fish in real time

-See fish and structure in real-time, powered by the unmatched detail and clarity of MEGA Imaging throughout the entire sonar view.

-Don’t miss a fish. Mega Live is constructed with no gaps in sonar coverage, meaning fish won’t disappear while swimming throughout the sonar view.

-Keep fish and your lure within sight thanks to Mega Imaging detail and an optimized sonar cone angle, providing ample sonar coverage without sacrificing the precision ability to target individual fish and your lure.


Multiple views for different fishing applications

-View everything down, out and around your boat with live sonar. Choose from multiple viewing modes; Forward, Down and Landscape, provided by the included trolling motor shaft mount.

Down Mode

-Ideal for seeing detailed images of structure and fish swimming underneath the boat. Great for vertical presentations like jigging and drop shotting

Forward Mode

-Great for casting out ahead and around the boat, making casts and lure presentation more precise. Pairs well with presentations away from the boat, like jerkbaits, crankbaits, swim jigs, and others.

Landscape Mode

-Great tool for scouting around your boat, offering maximum sonar coverage to find structure and fish.
