    Default Finally pulled the trigger

    After a lot of research and conversations with friends and several Garmin dealers we bought livescope. I got a 1222 chart plotter for the screen because we already did the mapping and scanning with the unit on the console. Again, after talking with 5 different Garmin dealers - 4 of them recommended to put the black box on a separate battery. Also, I had multiple reliable recommendations to use the 18v 12 amp hour milkaukee batteries as the higher voltage would provide better pictures. I know that some on here would disagree so don't shoot the messenger. After the first couple of outings fishing at least 8 hours I still had 17.1v showing on the screen. I have included pictures of my battery set up and some of the pictures of the fish from the first 2 LS outings.Name:  20201123_092631.jpg

    Looks good Richard! I know you didn't need livescope to fill a livewell though. Congratulations, it changes everything you thought you knew about crappie.

    Milwalkee batteries cost too much per amp hour and requires you to buy adapter . I use a Lithium battery with 32 Amp Hours . It runs livescope 12'' screen and black box . mine ran almost 16 hours on one charge . i got it for 250 with charger and never drops below 12 volts . Charges to 16.8 volts . Even Garmin says higher voltage don't make it work better but low voltage not good .Like the light weight battery only 4.8 lbs . and no adapter needed

    I know you will put it to good use. I really like mine.
