The new HDS LIVE 16 carries on the premium performance expected by fishing tour pros, with the best collection of innovative sonar features. Experience a new level of fishfinding performance with the brand new Active Imaging™ sonar, which together with the industry leading StructureScan® 3D brings you 3-in-1 sonar capabilities like no other (transducer not included). Includes pre-loaded C-MAP AU/NZ charts.

Navigating to your favourite fishing spot has never been easier, with a new set of navigation features built into your HDS display, including C-MAP Easy Routing and Genesis Live mapping.

Featuring a high-resolution 16-inch SolarMAX™ HD screen, HDS LIVE 16 provides industry-leading images that are always easy to see – from any angle, in direct sunlight or even through polarized sunglasses.

HDS LIVE delivers powerful high-performance, dual-core processor that produces smooth, lag-free operation, responsive touchscreen performance, and faster chart redraws and sonar updates.
