Lowrance has announced its new HDS Live real-time sonar/chart plotters with Active Imaging, available with chirp, side- and down-imaging technologies. The new system enhances FishReveal with higher-level clarity and target separation. The units deliver LiveSight sonar for extra-detailed views in real time. Mount the transducer facing forward to cast toward fish, or mount it facing down for vertical jigging. HDS Live also comes with Genesis Live Charting for creating real-time custom maps and LiveCast smartphone integration so anglers can display fishing information and entertainment from their smartphones on Live's 12- or 16-inch displays (7- and 9-inch screen sizes are also available). HDS Live ranges in price from $949 to $4,499. Active Imaging can be purchased with HDS Live or as an accessory for $299. The LiveSight transducer costs $999.
