Curious if any of you guys are running two graphs on the front deck with multiple transducers? I'm thinking about adding a Garmin unit to my front deck specifically for livescope. I currently have a Helix 10 SI up there and really don't want to get rid of the side imaging transducer on that unit. Plus i like the mapping and the waypoint sharing setup that my humminbird graphs have. I noticed Garmin has a way to mount their livescope transducer to the trolling motor shaft. Anyone doing something similar to this? I'm not really worried about interference. I could always disable the transducer on the humminbird when using livescope if I had to. Just don't have any experience with the Garmin units. Especially mounting garmin transducer on the tm shaft. Thanks in advance for any input.

Curious about bow mounted SI results. I have tried trolling motor mounted SI transducer paired with HB1199 at the bow and was not impressed with the imagery. Wondering if the newer SI models perform better now ?

The side imaging on my helix 10 SI G3N+ worked great on my trolling motor until the last month. The service center is telling me the armature is about to go out and that is what is causing the interference now. Going to replace the armature next week.

I have a Lowrance carbon up front with the Garmin livescope. Installation does not conflict with each other and I have not recognized any interference.

I've been running Livescope on the shaft and Garmin UHD54 (down/side view) for quite awhile on my Force and love it. 106 and 8610 on the front deck.

I heard one drawback on mounting your live scope transducer to your tm shaft is that you have to point tm at the area you want to fish. If you are in spot lock mode this is a problem.

Or one ADVANTAGE of mounting it on the trolling motor shaft is that you CAN point the trolling motor at the area you want to fish. I can continue fishing without reaching for a separate mount to point the Livescope. When I am in Anchor Mode and want to look around, I simply take it off Anchor for a second or two and turn the trolling motor without hitting the prop button. I primarily bass fish, have had Livescope on the shaft since the beginning and have no desire to change it. Others do it different.
