    I have 3x 10" Helix units, an Ultrex link, and Mega 360 on my boat, as well as a Garmin running livescope.

    I was planning to sell my Garmin stuff and go full Humminbird when this came out. I can't belive they are using the term "Mega" to describe this pixelated mess. What a disappointment.

    It looks to me that humminbird is gonna use mega live and 360 together. That is why you see no structure in the video. Been waiting for humminbird but now for sure gonna go with garmin.

    Looks pretty much to me to be the same thing as LS. I have never had or seen in person live scope. So, I wouldn't know when to jump ship on what I'm looking at. Both seem like a video game to me from what I seen. It seems that Garmin cost big bucks and HB is going to cost some what less. I would hope HB would not take a dive and leave us a wad of crap. I have waited to long already. I hope to see HB in person before I buy one. Got my fingers crossed!

    Mega Live is priced exactly the same as Livescope with the black box. It will only cost you less if you already own a compatible plotter, which is limited to units produced in the last year or two. If you had to buy the whole package, it's a crapshoot on which would be more expensive, because there are a ton of different options for the plotter.

    What appears to be the biggest limitation and cause of blur is the wider angle of the cone. This might actually work better than livescope if you are trying to chase down a large fish, but I highly doubt a 1/8th oz. crappie jig will even show up.

    I honestly hope I'm wrong on this and they get it sorted out before the September release. I'd much rather have everything on my boat be linked up, vs. having two separate brands.

    I have the Helix 12 mega plus and am waiting to see if it Mega live is not a dud. I was thinking in my head it is cheaper because there is no black box involved which if it is needed it will cost another 4-5 hundred more. I am hoping you can chase a school of perch or crappie tight lining. No there will not be two brands for me either. Still a lot of unknowns to me which makes me a little jitter about it. I'm hoping for the best to come to life for us HB users.

    There’s not much to compare yet as all the videos released are only showing fish with no structure ...

    Ok so how come all these posters are talking about how terrible it is? Compared to live scope?
