My fishing mentor has it, and I helped him install it. Works very well, and it's a very nice setup. He had his transducer mounted on the shaft, so he was dependant on the TM. When he was spot locked, he was not able to see the structure. Now he can lock onto a piece of structure and move all around it and it stays locked. Other than him I haven't seen it on any boats. I liked the fact that no new power wire was needed, it drops in-line with the live transducer cables. If you already have a 360 buy the 360/target plate to hold both.

He fished GV allot. If you want to pick his brain, IM me and I will forward you his user name.

I would love it but the money is stupid for that. I have had the opportunity to use the live version of all tree and humminbird has the worst clarity of the 3. I have all birds but they need to improve it and come down on the cost

Works great. To have all the features, you need a Minnkota Ultrex with iPilot LINK.
Target Lock will track three different ways:
A direction
A waypoint
A screen curser position

Don't really have to use the dual mount plate if you already have the MEGA 360, you can stack the plates with two spaces on two of the mount bolts. This is them stacked:

Hennessey Outdoor Electronics has a dual mount plate for display clearance for multi-bow units if your installation has an issue. It positions the Target Lock forward of the trolling motor shaft.

There is a wireless foot pedal and handheld remote. One of the buttons is programmable for 5 different functions---Sweep, Home (straight forward), mark a waypoint, turn sonar pinging on/off, and Minnkota Steer. The foot pedal and handheld can have two different functions.

It’s incredible, I have seen it twice.


Do not have it but it is very tempting

I love it. It's great when you are fishing offshore structure. I like the other features like sweep mode and the minnkota steer which makes the mega live follow the heading of the ultrex.

For the way I fish 60% of the time it's truly a game changer for me.
