Default Panoptix livescope

I have an echomap plus 93sv. I am wanting to add livescope to it. Who has this set up and how do they like it? Also, how difficult is it to add?

I have a 93 sv uhd and plan on adding it soon hopefully. I believe you just need the box and transducer which is around $1500 last time I checked.

Great combo. Livescope rebate is $200 off right now so go get one!

I upgraded from the 93sv to the 1022 model. both work great. i moved my 93 back to the console so now i have two units on the console (one maps, one side imaging usually).

I have it, works great. You need the black box, the transducer, and some type of deployment apparatus. Mine is on my Ultrex, but works independently. I like that better than a separate pole, less clutter on the front. Get a professional to hook it up for you.

Well I bought one when I got off work today. Do you know if I will have to do any software upgrades once Its installed. I can do all the work I just was wondering if there were in hurdles I need to be aware of. The graphs are already in place. I installed them about a year ago.

Don't do the update. I am not sure they have undone the one from last year but it was a downgrade on mine.

You will need a pole dancer and a couple mounts.

Its a huge tech upgrade and almost spookie cool to see fish swim up and not bite your lure.

I purchased one of the first shippment to cabelas and still am playing with it.

Pickup one of those lithium batteries for me next time you see him! We can work out a payment plan.

I have a Livescope and it is hooked to two 93svUHDs. I built my own pole and someone on this site made me a perspective mode transducer mount. It has made fishing fun again.

I would also run the 93 and live scope on a dedicated battery. Mine didn't like sharing batteries.

Could explain more on what you mean by donít like.
Does it drain your battery or are speaking about interference. Or something else.

They pull a lot of juice! Thatís why you see some folks with small generators on the back of their boats! Seems a lot easier to me to just add another battery.
