Garmin LVS12 Transducer

Jan 15, 2019

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), has announced the Panoptix LiveScope™ LVS12, a new transducer in the award-winning Panoptix LiveScope series that offers both 30-degree forward and 30-degree down real-time scanning sonar views. The single-array LiveScope LVS12 transducer is an economical solution for inland and near-shore anglers without the need for a black box. Garmin’s revolutionary Panoptix™ all-seeing sonar technology was the first to deliver live sonar images in real-time – forwards, backwards, and below the boat – even while stationary. Now, thanks to the active scanning capabilities of Panoptix LiveScope, anglers can see images and movement so clear and precise that it’s even possible to distinguish between species of fish.
 
“Panoptix LiveScope is an absolute game-changer, and we’re excited to bring this live, real-time scanning sonar technology to even more anglers with the addition of the Panoptix LVS12,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Whether you’re drop shotting from the bow, jigging or fishing a dock, the Panoptix LVS12 delivers an easy-to-interpret real-time sonar image so you can spend less time looking for the fish and more time catching them.”
 
Like other Garmin Panoptix transducers, the LiveScope LVS12 features two modes in one transducer – LiveScope Down and LiveScope Forward – and can be installed on a trolling motor or the transom. Depending on the anglers fishing preferences and techniques, they can choose to view both modes simultaneously or each individually from the chartplotter without any manual adjustment of the transducer. Both views provide incredibly sharp, real-time scanning sonar images up to 200 feet down or away from the boat, even when the boat is stationary. The LiveScope LVS12 is also equipped with an attitude heading reference system (AHRS) that constantly adjusts sonar beams to compensate for boat motion, so even in rough conditions, anglers will still see a steady sonar image.
 
The Panoptix LiveScope LVS12 includes a trolling motor barrel and shaft mounting kit as well as a transom mounting kit. Currently, the LVS12 is compatible with Garmin’s new GPSMAP® 8400/8600xsv multifunction displays, and is available now with a suggested U.S. retail price of $499.99.
