Lowrance LiveSight Sonar Transducer
Sonar interpretation made simple. The Lowrance® LiveSight™ Sonar Transducer turns all fishing into sight fishing, delivering the most detailed views of fish, down to every turn and flip of the tail, as they swim in and around cover. Unlike traditional sonar transducers with delayed presentations, this Lowrance transducer lets you fish in real time as you watch and react to your lure, see how they relate to structure, and gain insight on what's working, what's not, and what to do next. The Lowrance LiveSight Sonar Transducer puts you in control like never before. Includes 3 mounts: transom mount, trolling-motor shaft mount, and trolling-motor bottom mount. Manufacturer model #: 000-14458-001.

Years Behind Garmin PanoptixAt the end of the day, if you want to try live sonar (which is awesome), go with a Garmin Panoptix system. If you want something dedicated for that, it's actually cheaper anyways and the Garmin transducer is so far ahead Lowrance. See my problems with Lowrance below:
1. The mounts for the unit are not conducive to the Xi5 style of trolling motor. While the down mount would likely work fine, you cannot use the forward mount on the unit. For my purposes, I had to create my own special mount to be able to use it in the forward position.
2. The design of the transducer is awful compared to Panoptix LiveScope. It’s massive and you can’t easily switch between forward and down like you can with Garmin’s LVS32 transducer.
3. When using LiveSight along with my Active Imaging transducer, I noticed that the down imaging performance was impacting negatively. The auto depth scale kept jumping up and down and wouldn’t allow for a clear picture. After unplugging LiveSight and rebooting the units, the problem stopped. When using LiveSight again later, the problem continued.
4. Image stabilization is brutally bad. In some decent waves yesterday, the image kept jumping around. This makes it difficult to pinpoint actual fish movements. Also, target trails are completely useless in any wind.
5. Distinguishing between fish and structure/cover is not easy. When using Panoptix LiveScope, I was able to discern targets from structure and cover reasonably well. The definition of the image is not good.
6. After about 20 feet in forward, the image becomes useless. One of the primary purposes I had for this setup was I wanted to use it in forward facing position, point it behind the boat and get some depths of baits that I troll for musky. These are sizeable baits, anywhere from 5 - 14”, generally. I have been in the boat while this was done with Panoptix LiveScope, and it was just awesome. You could actually pick up fish following your baits as well. I tried this yesterday and found that anything beyond 20 feet forward was pretty much garbage. I’m not sure if it’s because the cone’s beam is so much wider, making this product far inferior, or what, but I could not pick up large lures more than 20 feet from the boat. That makes it impossible to use for the purpose of trolling, since the boat is already 17 feet long.
7. Again, when casting large baits in front of the transducer to try and get sink rate and look at pull pause action, anything outside of 20 feet didn’t really pick up. When the bait got closer to the boat and finally displayed, there were moments where the LiveScope seemed to freeze or delay massively.

First Lowrance product returnedI purchased it a month ago and used it 5 times in two weeks. I then returned it to Bass Pro Shops for a full refund. I'm very happy with Bass Pro but equally disappointed with Lowrance. All you see on the screen are blobs very close to the boat. Some rising from the bottom are air bubbles. Some stationary are unknown. The ones moving horizontally could be fish but they look the same as the air bubbles. In shallow water all the blobs are closer to the boat than the rod tip. One time I was on a lake 60' deep. I cast my crank bait out 100' and brought it towards the LiveSight Transducer. It appeared on the screen 60' from the boat. I moved into water 40' deep without changing any setting. I cast the lure out and it appeared on the screen 40' feet from the boat. I moved to 20' deep water and the lure appeared 20' from the boat. The lure appeared 10' from the boat in 10' of water.The bottom contour was visible the full range but the range a swimming objects could be seen appeared to be limited by the depth of the water. I reported this to a technician at Lowrance and he seemed interested and he asked for a video. I sent him one and I have not had any response. The images I see from the 3 in 1 Transducer are so fantastic, I don't understand how they think people will be satisfied with what they see from LiveSight. In a couple of years I hope Lowrance will come out with something worth buying.

Great productI've never use any other live sight so I can't compare, but I find pretty cool to watch the fish swim back and forth. I bass fish mostly and I wish it would reach out further. I can see fish at about 30 feet and it picks up my bait at around 20 to 20 feet it's all according to the size of bait. I haven't used it in the down image but I would say it's better than front imaging. .

Not what I expectedI finally got the transducer for my HDSLive-12. At a first attempt to use it the display would not have it on the menu and asked for software update to ver.19.1. What a mistake. It is on the menu now but only sometimes gets recognized and initialized by the display. You never know which restart will make it work. Navico Support didn't respond yet after two weeks... sending instead email with a request to rate how well they did. Not the customer services that I provide to our customers. When transducer gets activated then it work until next system restart. However it works incorrectly because the LiveSight screen content is not being scaled when used in metric system settings! I was told that this software release ver.19.1 is full of bugs. And by the way - the detail you see on LiveSight is far away from what competitor has. It's weird that such a brand name is releasing a product that is not working correctly and is so behind competition. For sue you will not be able to see 'the tail flips'. If you will see something more besides 'No source' message. For those who have similar problem: make sure it gets turned off from the 'map screen'. This is that state from which when most often transducer is recognized after next reboot. If your transducer is recognized but still you get no content and just captions are blinking, go to 'Advanced', turn off "Surface clarity", return to previous screen and select "Default..". This will make it start working. Be aware of possibility to damage the SD card during firmware updates - I lost two commercial map SD's. use a separate SD card for updates and remove any other before updating. I wish I bough something else.
