Looking to order Mega Live... wife just surprised me with livescope and a Garmin 93SV, but I’m thinking since I’m already running Helix 9s and the one up front is a Gen3, I need to send em back and wait on the Mega Live.

From what I can tell, the Garmin is much better.

I’ve considered keeping the LS and the Garmin but one of my concerns is adding the 2nd screen up front. Best I can tell the LS will require an additional mounting bracket as well, where mega will mount directly to my trolling motor. Just getting back into fishing after a 5 year hiatus while I’ve started a business, so all this is knew to me.

Last question is any suggestions on a dual mount for the HB and Garmin?

Beatdown Outdoors has a pretty slick dual mount option that also telescopes to raise the graphs up for better viewing.

LiveScope mounts on your trolling motor head or the shaft, both accessories are included in the box. I'd take it to Shut Up And Fish and have them put it all together for you.

As far as the dual mount, hard to go wrong with BoatLogix. They are unbelievably tough.

I just had my Garmin installed and I used the "HOE" mount and it is very sturdy and adjustable.

Option A: Upset the wife by returning her gift and getting a MegaLive

Option B: Have a happy wife, and a happy life using the superior product

And....Im a humminbird fanboy. Like full on fanboy. Keep the garmin. Use the HB stuff you have with lakemaster and for mapping purposes to help you dial in your spots. But yea, Garmin is hands down the best looking (from screenshots ive owned neither) one. So id stick with that one.

Agree 100%. Plus, you have the Livescope in hand right now. There's no telling when you will be able to get the Mega Live delivered.

Option 3 - Use Garmin until HB 0erfects and gets above Supply-Chain issues then sell/buy the HB product and spend the money twice. roflmao

I’ve had nothing but problems out of Mega Live. Professionally installed, tuned by Slade, nothing but headaches. Coming off my boat next week. Keep your Garmin
