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 fishfinding technology, unmatched by any other fishfinder.
Prepare yourself for a new level of fishfinding performance with HDS LIVE, which includes built-in Lowrance® CHIRP sonar, support for Active Imaging™, StructureScan® 3D with Active Imaging and revolutionary LiveSight™ Real-Time Sonar. Equipped with the best set of navigation tools ever built into a fishfinder/chartplotter display, HDS LIVE features preloaded C-MAP® US Enhanced Inland and Coastal mapping, automatic routing support and new Genesis Live onscreen mapping offering precision real-time mapping, down to ½-foot contours.
Sonar interpretation made simple, LiveSight™ sonar turns all fishing into sight fishing, delivering the most detailed views of fish, down to every turn and flip of the tail, as they swim in and around cover. You’ll be fishing in real-time as you watch fish react to your lure, see how they are relating to structure and gain insight on what will work, what won’t and what to do next.
Get ready to elevate your fishfinding capabilities with HDS LIVE, integrating the built-in Lowrance® CHIRP sonar, compatibility for Active Imaging™ HD, Active Imaging™, StructureScan® 3D with Active Imaging, and the advanced ActiveTarget™2 and ActiveTarget™ Live Sonar. Featuring the most comprehensive navigation utilities ever incorporated into a fishfinder/chartplotter display, HDS LIVE comes with preinstalled C-MAP® Contour™+ inland and coastal charts, automatic routing capabilities, and the innovative Genesis Live onscreen mapping that provides meticulous real-time mapping down to ½-foot contours.
Enhance your fishing strategy by understanding fish behavior in real-time through ActiveTarget® 2 and ActiveTarget® Live Sonar. Gain detailed insights into fish movements as they navigate around structures and cover, observing them in forward, down, and scout perspectives. Monitor their immediate reaction to your bait and determine whether your existing approach is effective or if a change is necessary. The new ActiveTarget® 2 offers a refined, uniform image across its complete range.
Perfect for pinpointing fish-holding areas like rockpiles, standing timber, weedbeds, 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 Lowrance HDS-12 LIVE coupled with Active Imaging 3-in-1 delivers an unparalleled imaging experience, showcasing unmatched clarity and the utmost resolution of fish and underwater structures at greater distances than any other visualization system. This groundbreaking technology is perfect for identifying areas teeming with fish such as rock formations, standing timber, weeds, trenches, and shifts in gradient.
Maximize your fishing efforts and minimize search time with the detailed precision of C-MAP® Contour™+ inland and coastal charts integrated into HDS LIVE displays. Whether pinpointing essential fishing zones like ledges, depth changes, or ditches or steering with accuracy to areas rich in fish, you'll achieve greater results on water with sharp, bathymetric 1-foot contours covering over 15,000 U.S. lakes and over 9,400 lakes in Canada. Refine the mapping of your preferred fishing locale or chart previously unmapped regions with ½ foot contours – in real-time – directly on your HDS LIVE screen using C-MAP® Genesis Live.
Update the mapping of your favorite fishing spot or map unmapped areas with ½ 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.
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.
You no longer have to choose between watching the big game and spending a day on the water with LiveCast™ 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 12-inch model.
