What is it?
Garmin Panoptix LiveScope Ice Fishing Bundle
What sets it apart?
Panoptix LiveScope is the first and only live scanning sonar for recreational fishing, and anglers can now benefit from seeing fish and structure in real-time, up to 200 feet in any direction, below the ice. Equipped with everything needed for hard water fishing, the Panoptix LiveScope Ice Fishing Bundle includes a large EchoMap Plus 93sv keyed-assist chartplotter, the Panoptix LiveScope System with forward- and down-scanning modes, a swivel pole mount, and so much more – all in a convenient, glove-friendly portable carrying case.
How do I use it?
Garmin’s Panoptix LiveScope was first introduced to the market last year, where it went on to receive the 2018 ICAST Best of Show and Best Electronics awards. Honored as the 2018 Technology of the Year by the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA), Panoptix LiveScope was also named a 2019 Top Product by Boating Industry.
Like all Garmin chartplotters, the EchoMap Plus series has an easy-to-use interface that allows for customized combination screens, so anglers can easily access flasher, map, sonar and other data most important to them. The chartplotter’s glove-friendly, user-programable keys allow for one-press access to the angler’s favorite pages.
The Panoptix LiveScope Ice Bundle includes a 12Ah battery with charger, power cable and foam float. Expected to be available in October.
Yes, many bass-fishing finatics put up the boat for the winter and hit the woods. But for those who live in the ice belt and refuse to stay locked inside during the near arctic winters, now is the time to arm yourself with outstanding and beyond adequate ice-fishing sonar. Whether you are the kind that loves to sit in a comfy heated ice shack, or you prefer to brave the elements and run and gun for your winter cooler fodder, now you have the ability to see what's around you, rather than just small cone directly beneath your feet. Ice fishing has gone to a whole new level thanks to Garmin. This technology has ice fishing written all over it, and you will catch more fish if you implement it into your ice-fishing arsenal. This is cool, very cool.
