    OVERVIEW

    See fish in real-time, in no time. MEGA Live Imaging provides the most impressive live sonar on the water, allowing you to watch fish and structure in real-time, powered by the unmatched detail of MEGA Imaging®. This U.S. Patent Pending technology provides views out, down, and around your boat with absolute clarity, and even allows you to watch fish bite your lure. This accessory transducer mounts to a trolling motor shaft and provides three different live sonar views; Down, Forward and Landscape modes with the included mounting bracket.

    Features

    * See fish and structure in real-time, with no gaps in sonar coverage, powered by the unmatched detail and clarity of MEGA Imaging® throughout the entire sonar view.

    *View everything down, out and around your boat with live sonar. Choose from multiple viewing modes; Forward, Down and Landscape, provided by the included trolling motor shaft mount.

    *Keep fish and your lure within sight thanks to MEGA Imaging® detail and an optimized sonar cone angle, providing ample sonar coverage without sacrificing the precision ability to target individual fish.

    *Mark and view waypoints on the MEGA Live Imaging sonar screen to remember productive fishing spots for next time, when paired with an optional GPS receiver with heading sensor (AS GPS HS).

    *Connect MEGA Live Imaging to compatible Humminbird models via the included Ethernet cable. There is no external sonar box required for installation, allowing for the connection of optional sonar source like MEGA 360 Imaging® or Built-in MEGA Imaging® to the same control head.

    *Compatible Humminbird control heads: HELIX 8-15 G3N & G4N models with MEGA Imaging®, All SOLIX® models, and All APEX™ models.

    *For optimal sonar performance, it is recommended that MEGA Live Imaging be used with any Minn Kota®️ Ultrex™️ trolling motor or a Minn Kota®️ Fortrex®️ trolling motor equipped with Built-in MEGA Imaging®️.

    *Includes: MEGA Live Imaging transducer with adjustable mounting bracket, 10' power cable, 20' Ethernet cable and mounting hardware.

    Looks good for Humminbird guys! If I understand correctly, there is no black box. If so, that is a nice feature. However, I still believe Garmin was ahead of their time with the Livescope. Their images are as good or better than the videos Ive seen of the competition. All technologies look very similar. Either way, depending on the MFDs you have, pick your poison if interested in live imaging! Lots to learn down there.

    I was expecting HB to be better than It’s competitors…Need to see more action videos to sell me. My mega 360 for my fishing style is hard to beat. Just my 2 cents.

    I just received the official email on this also. The title says live imaging is here but scroll to the bottom and it says September 2021. I'm still waiting to find out what the built in wifi is all about on the generation 4 helix units also.

    I'm most interested in Humminbird claims of no gaps in sonar coverage, if that's true I'm in.

    Standing by. I was thinking of going to a single head unit up front but i think i am going to need both Mega 360 and MegaLive in view at the same time.

    That is definitely not the Oculus based videos we were getting early this year. I was wondering how they were going to pull that off so cheap and get it to work with that heavy driven software that Oculus uses. They sure didnt pick any pretty structure for the real debut video, but unless they are sand bagging, this looks a step under Garmin right now.

    Agree with you Hammerhead.
    No doubt they have good if not the best Mega DI/SI but I think they missed the boat on this one.
    It will benefit the guys running compatible Bird head units but from what I’ve seen, Garmin Livescope beat them hands down.
    I’m still hearing from (in the know) hummingbird folks that the release date will be the last quarter of the year.
    I run 3 Birds on my boat and still glad I pulled the trigger on a Garmin instead of waiting.

    I thought the Mega Live would blow Garmin out of the water. I get better images than those in the video on my livescope.
