Fish in Real-Time with LiveSight Sonar

The next weapon in an angler’s arsenal, LiveSight real-time sonar is the perfect addition to our number one fishfinder.

Take your HDS LIVE system to the next level with live views of bait and fish movements. Watch fish react to your bait and know what is working, what isn’t and what to do next.​

Set up a two-panel splitscreen and find the fish with Active Imaging, then watch fish hit your bait – as it happens – with LiveSight real-time sonar​.

Turn all your fishing into sight fishing with LiveSight.

Active Imaging

Perfect for pinpointing fish-holding areas like rock piles, standing timber, weedbeds, ditches and drop-offs, Active Imaging sonar delivers superior clarity and the highest resolution images of fish and structure at a longer range than any other structure-imaging technology.



Makes fish easier to see on Down Scan Imaging by combining CHIRP sonar fish targets with superior, high-resolution views of bottom detail, structure and bait fish. FishReveal removes the need to display CHIRP sonar and Down Scan Imaging in a two-panel split-screen.

Mapping in Real-Time

Mapping in Real-Time

Update the mapping of your favourite fishing spot or map unmapped areas with ½ foot contours – in real time – on the screen of your fish finder/chartplotter with C-MAP Genesis Live. Genesis Live uses digital depth to create high-definition maps featuring 1/2-foot contours. Target key fishing areas with Genesis Live maps, which makes it easy to find areas where fish like to hide, like drop-offs, points, ditches and more. A truly customizable mapping experience, Genesis Live gives you control over contour transparency, contour density, depth and safety shading colour palettes, and more. Create your Genesis Live maps in real-time, saving them as you go to a microSD card.

Smartphone Notifications
