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.
