Forgive me if this topic had been discussed recently. Couldnt find it trying to search.

I am looking to purchase one of these, and I am looking for feedback on which is better for my type of fishing. I mainly fish docks and deep brush piles.

Thank you

I don’t have experience with either, but just in case you haven’t watched this video, this guy breaks down each.

Go on YouTube and look up Jacob Wheelers page. He just did a video on this topic. He has all 3 on his front deck and talks about how he uses each of them and which works better for him at different depths.

360 locates and displays objects. The mega 360 shows absolutely everything and is simply amazing.

Live shows live display so you can see fish which way they are going etc.

They absolutely compliment each other. For example 360 in 25’ can show you bait balls at 100’ around your boat then you can turn the tm amd use live normal view to see if there are fish under them eating or not etc.

It might be coming, both Lowrance and Hbird have something new coming out.


Edit: apparently we aren’t supposed to show the picture.

Lowrance is licensing the tech from Garmin.

Mega360 to locate structure around you and the Livescope to judge the size of the fish and pinpoint your cast.

I just saw of all my Lowrance units after over 20 years of being a Lowrance guy. I went all Garmin. So far I feel it isall I need. If it had unlimited funds I would certainly love to have a mega 360 as well, but I had to choose one and went with Garmin for several reasons. As I gain more experience with it I hope to confirm I made the right choice.

Which is why I wish ONE company had everything. This is worse than Chevy,Ford,Dodge in the 60’s and early 70’s.

Garmin is great unless you need good mapping. Garmin is simply terrible in this area.

To me the Garmin perspective is only good under 20' just my opinion it shines at about 15'

Just like computers. You buy the latest greatest and 6 months later it's old tech.
