Lowrance HDS-12 LIVE Fishfinders build on the HDS tradition with innovative features like Active Imaging, StructureScan 3D with Active Imaging, Genesis Live mapping, LiveSight real-time sonar Forward or Down compatibility, and more (some features require additional component purchase). Boasting a powerful arsenal of sonar functionality right out-of-the-box, the HDS Live series is set apart by its built-in support for Active Imaging and compatibility with StructureScan 3D with Active Imaging and LiveSight real-time sonar.

The HDS LIVE 12 delivers powerful fishfinding sonar with a high-performance dual-core processor that produces smooth, lag-free operation, responsive touchscreen performance, and faster sonar updates and chart redraws. Sporting the best navigation tools in the history of the HDS series, the HDS LIVE 12 includes C-MAP Easy Routing and Navionics Autorouting capability (Navionics subscription required - not included), preloaded high-res C-MAP US Enhanced inland and coastal charts, plus new C-MAP Genesis Live mapping, allowing anglers to create up to 1/2ft contour maps in real time on their display. With an incredibly clear high-resolution SolarMAX HD screen, the Lowrance HDS LIVE 12 produces industry-leading images that are always easy to see in any circumstance - from any angle, in direct sunlight, even through polarized sunglasses. Of course, it can easily handle current technology and future upgrades, plus a multitude of HDS LIVE integration options such as Broadband 4G Radar, SonicHub 2 audio, SiriusXM Audio/Marine Weather, autopilots, and Power Pole Shallow Water anchors. Clearly it's not an accident that more fishing tour pros use HDS than all other fishfinder models combined.

Lowrance HDS LIVE Series Advantages:

Best Screens: Even through polarized sunglasses, you will have an easy time viewing fish, structure and bottom detail on bright and clear SolarMAX HD screens that offer clean and crisp views in direct sunlight from any angle.

New, Modern, Low-Profile Design: Enhance the look of your console with the new, zero-edge glass design of HDS LIVE, featuring the exceptional crispness, vibrant images and extreme viewing angles of SolarMAX HD technology. Create a clean, sleek look at the console with an HDS LIVE flush mount.

Easy and Efficient Interface: Designed with a simpler feature layout, the next-level ease of use and efficiency of the refreshed HDS interface mean on-the-water adjustments will be quicker and easier.

High Performance Processor: Whether panning the chart, tracking back through your sonar history or creating a Genesis LIVE map, you will get responsive, smooth operation with no lag from the dual-core processor at the heart of HDS LIVE. The high- performance processor can easily drive today's technology, like Active Imaging 3D, LiveSight sonar, Genesis Live, StructureMap, Live Network sonar with power to spare for future innovations.

Active Imaging: See structure and cover with a new level of refined detail at a range unmatched by anyone else with new, Lowrance Active Imaging. Active Imaging is available with 3-in-1 transducer (CHIRP, SideScan and DownScan Imaging) and Active Imaging 2-in-1 transducer (SideScan and DownScan Imaging) options.

View all Structure Imaging - Side-by-Side: For the first time, you can get a side-by-side view of all your structure imaging technology with the enhanced capabilities of HDS LIVE, which supports simultaneous viewing of StructureScan 3D, SideScan and DownScan Imaging panels.

Most Advanced Fishfinder Technology: Simultaneously view CHIRP Sonar with Active Imaging 3D to get the best possible view of fish and structure, below and to the sides of your boat.

LiveSight: Get live views of fish movements across the bottom, in and around cover and structure with new, revolutionary LiveSight sonar. Capable of showing views beneath, or in front of your boat, LiveSight is at its best when trolling at very slow speeds or fishing from a single spot. HDS LIVE comes LiveSight ready, so all you need to do is mount the LiveSight transducer and get after the fish.

FishReveal Smart Target View: Makes fish easier to see on DownScan Imaging by combining crystal-clear CHIRP sonar fish targets with superior, high-resolution views of bottom detail, structure and bait fish.

Live Network Sonar: Cover more water and mark fish targets more clearly from a network of CHIRP sonar transducers. Get sonar views from bow-mounted transducer and the in-hull or transom-mounted transducer at the same time on the same display.

Dual-Channel CHIRP: Deep water and trolling anglers will never miss a fish, watching two Lowrance CHIRP frequencies at the same time via a dual-channel CHIRP split screen. Run a High CHIRP panel for the best target separation close to the bottom or in tight schools, a Medium CHIRP panel to cover the widest area - ideal for watching bait schools under a transducer in shallow water, or go deeper with a Low CHIRP panel to cover more of the water column.

Smartphone Notifications: Keep your eyes on the fish and never miss an important text or call with smartphone notifications built into HDS LIVE. Turn off phone notifications for uninterrupted fishing, or leave them on to receive popup notifications on the screen of your HDS LIVE display.

C-MAP Genesis LIVE: Create your own high-definition 1/2-foot contour maps - in real time - on your HDS LIVE screen with C-MAP Genesis Live.

C-MAP Easy Routing and Navionics Dock-to-Dock Autorouting: You will navigate faster and easier with automatic route planning. Menu activated, the feature automatically plots the shortest and safest course based on a boat's draft, beam and height, creating a route around a landmass, shoals and other fixed navigational hazards. Requires C-MAP MAX-N+ charts, Navionics+ or Navionics Platinum charts.

C-MAP Navigation Palette: Enhances the readability of C-MAP charts, especially near shore, where the colors used for land, docks, anchorage areas, water, and channels are nicely differentiated and water contour lines are distinct. That makes it easy to tell where the boat is in relation to a channel, navaid, ledges and drop-offs, or a point of land. The color scheme is much easier on the eye.

Network All Components: Plug-and-play compatibility with Lowrance performance modules, including Broadband Radar, SonicHub2 Marine Audio, SiriusXM Marine Weather and audio, Class B AIS and DSC VHF, as well as industry-leading technologies, like Mercury VesselView Link, Bluetooth control of Power-Pole shallow water anchors equipped with the C-Monster Control System and the SmartSteer interface, featuring control of MotorGuide Xi5 trolling motor and the Lowrance Outboard Pilot.

Wireless Connectivity: Integrated wireless connectivity with the Lowrance LINK App and other onboard devices, allows you to download software updates and custom C-MAP Genesis maps directly to the display and offers wireless smartphone viewing/tablet control of HDS Carbon displays.
