One of these beauties is mine. Just arrived in Korea today, hoping I can get it installed this weekend.

Same here Donald. I have been on a couple of boats that have this technology. It's amazing!

I got the new system installed in my boat on Saturday. It took me about 2 hours in total. I was taking my time and double checking each step before moving forward with the next step. Plus it was very cold outside where my boat is parked (didn't even reach 40f)  :blue



I have heard a lot of horror stories that mention the transducer cable is weak and damages really easily.

I had the GoPro running throughout the install, but I don't think the footage will be good enough to make into a proper video. We'll see after I check the footage.

I got on the water on Sunday just to see how it looks and works. It was a very cold and windy day, so I couldn't play around with it as much as I wanted, but I went to a spot where I have been catching a LOT of small bass that are schooling up on a deep main lake point. I was able to catch a few small ones using my 2D sonar (fishing vertically) as I did the week before, then I turned on the LiveScope and was able to see the fish moving around on the point and even follow my lure down as it fell to the bottom. Really awesome to see.
For sure, I was able to catch a few extra fish because of the LiveScope that I don't think I would have without it.

More playing to come over the coming weekends, hopefully will get better weather to actually play around with it.

I know there are some who would say it's not really "fishing" if you have all the newest electronics.  They are entitled to their opinion.  I say it's awesome and I'm super happy with mine.

Congrats on the new toys BK.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

I may miss out on the sale, but that is out of my control for now.  Not sure when the sale will end, but I wont be ready until at least the 10th.

Guys I'm pretty sure the $1875 price is still valid. Thats the 93sv and the livescope kit.  If anyone wants me to find out shoot me a pm. I think the rebate expired at midnight but im not totally sure.

Mike is spot on about BPS.
93SV $600. Last I looked the livescope kit was $1500.

I totally agree with you FD. If I don't keep up with the game then I'm falling behind. As a tournament angler I need to keep up with those that have the latest and greatest. The majority of Korean tournament anglers now have LiveScope and some even have LiveScope AND HB360   :surrender:

You are already falling behind with that Livescope. You will be replacing that with a Lowrance Active Target once you see the images it does.

I heard Lowrance would be letting it go soon, but man I'm so done with Lowrance Customer Service.

Since the Garmins on the shelves here in Louisiana are on clearance I have to assume that Garmin is also updating their stuff.

Thats why I bought the Garmin. Customer service is just impossible. I'm very disappointed at the fish reveal upgrade. It shows the same as sonar. I might sell both my Lowrance HDS 9 Units. I'll know when I have the Garmin beside the Lowrance. Me and Jacob Wheeler....one unit from every company!

Well all the pros used to say that Lowrance had the best mapping, Hummingbird had the best structure scan with the 360, and of course garmin with the livescope. I'll bet Garmin's next product is over the top on all three...

I want what the Navy is using right now, that's where all this stuff comes from anyway ~roflmao
