OLATHE, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), today announced Panoptix LiveScope™ – a live scanning sonar that gives anglers higher resolution and easier-to-interpret images of structure, bait and fish swimming below and around the boat than ever before. Garmin’s revolutionary Panoptix™ all-seeing sonar technology was the first to deliver live sonar images in real-time – forwards, backwards, sideways and below the boat – even while stationary. Now, thanks to the active scanning capabilities of Panoptix LiveScope, anglers can see images and movement so clear and precise that it’s even possible to distinguish between species of fish. See LiveScope in action here.

“We took scanning sonar and made it Panoptix,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “By combining two game-changing innovations – scanning sonar and live sonar – Panoptix LiveScope delivers the best of both technologies and there’s nothing out there even close to it. Once you’ve seen fish in this level of detail in a live, real-time image on your chartplotter, all other sonar is history – literally.”

Like other Garmin Panoptix transducers, LiveScope features two modes in one transducer –LiveScope Down and LiveScope Forward – and can be installed on a trolling motor or the transom (recommended only for LiveScope Forward). Depending on the angler’s fishing preferences and techniques, LiveScope can easily be adjusted to change views. Simply point the LiveScope transducer down to see directly below the boat, or forward to see around the boat. Either view provides incredibly sharp, real-time scanning sonar images up to 200 feet down or away from the boat, even when the boat is stationary. 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.

Panoptix LiveScope is being introduced in conjunction with a global 360-degree advertising campaign called “Sons of Fishes 2” that features Garmin-sponsored professional anglers Jason Christie, two-time BASS Elite Series champion, and Bill Dance, bass fishing’s elder statesman and ambassador. The Sons of Fishes sequel includes television, print, digital and social media executions that show a rival fishing club, The Bad Basses, attempting to claim the Sons of Fishes’ spot on the water and coveted LiveScope technology for themselves. To find out which fishing club prevails, check out the full commercial here.

The Panoptix LiveScope scanning sonar 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. A trolling motor barrel and shaft mounting kit and a transom mounting kit are also included. Panoptix LiveScope is compatible with Garmin’s GPSMAP® 8400/8600 multifunction displays, GPSMAP 7400/7600, GPSMAP 10X2/12X2, GPSMAP 10X2/12X2xsv Touch and GPSMAP 7X2/9X2 series chartplotters, and the ECHOMAP™ Plus 7Xcv/7Xsv/9Xsv chartplotter/sonar combo series.

Available now, the Panoptix LiveScope system has a suggested retail price of $1,499.99. For more information, videos and images, visit www.garmin.com/panoptix.

I have been able to not saying anything about this for the last several weeks while testing it. Watching fish swim in real life, watcthin baitfish move and seeing detail of what is in front or below the boat is unbelievable. This is almost video game fishing. Just yesterday I saw a fish suspended by a stump and caught it. Wow! Wow!

That looks like going to Cabela's or BPS and looking into the aquarium. So the kids sit on the couch and play video games; we spend big dollars to buy a boat to sit in to watch video. HA!

Now that looks interesting, if it shows fish in the real world like that video above shows then it’ll be great at showing different species. No more wasting time dropshotting for bass while sitting over a school of carp.

Interesting. Would like to see it with 360 coverage but if it looks like that in the real world, i might have to start thinking about a brand change.

I have my transducer mounted on the trolling motor shaft. So which ever way you point it, you get that particular view. And it looks exactly like that in the real world. It's amazing.

How does it mount on the trolling motor? I have an ulterra so I'm sure some type of custom mount would have to be used.

It also comes with a barrel mount so it doesn't have to be on the shaft.

It can be used in combination with
spotlock.
Then just disengage, pan around check for fish, re-ingage spotlock.

So, what kind of price point is this one going to be released at?

Looked like around $1500 from what I saw online. It is high but not a crazy price. Comparable to the HB 360 price wise.

I really thought this would be around $2000 for the black box and transducer. When I saw it was $1499, I was a little shocked.

Yea, I was guessing $4-$5K with how things are these days.
