The best just got better
The ultimate portable solution on and off the ice, the LiveScope Plus Ice Fishing Bundle LI now includes the ECHOMAP UHD2 93sv chartplotter with a bright, sunlight-readable 9” touchscreen display. In addition to possessing the latest live-scanning sonar technology, the LiveScope Plus system is the latest all-in-one bundle offering improved resolution, reduced noise, clearer images and better target separation so it’s easier for anglers to pinpoint and follow schools of fish below the ice.
It’s also preloaded with Garmin Navionics+™ inland mapping with unparalleled coverage and detail of more than 23,000 lakes with an included one-year subscription to daily map updates, plus built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity which lets anglers wirelessly share sonar data, waypoints and routes with another ECHOMAP UHD2 unit. Plus, its lightweight lithium battery offers improved mobility and plenty of battery life to fish all day.
The ECHOMAP UHD2 93sv has also been added to the LiveScope Ice Fishing Bundle, which includes an LVS32-IF transducer and lead acid battery.
Outfit your ice house with LiveScope
Designed for ice houses, the all-new LiveScope Plus Ice House System includes a GPSMAP® 8610xsv chartplotter so anglers can display live sonar on a television or external display via the chartplotter’s HDMI output1. The Ice House System bundle also includes the LiveScope Plus LVS34-IF transducer, GLS™ 10 sonar black box, a swivel pole mount and a transducer with a cable that stays flexible in the cold. Like the other LiveScope ice fishing bundles, the Ice House System is preloaded with Garmin Navionics+ mapping to give anglers exceptional inland mapping detail with a one-year subscription to daily map updates.
New ECHOMAP UHD2 ice fishing bundles
Garmin’s 2023-24 ice fishing lineup also includes new 5” and 7” ECHOMAP UHD2 bundle options. The ECHOMAP UHD2 5” Ice Fishing Bundle offers a keyed interface display with a dual beam-IF transducer for easy-to-see fish targets with excellent target separation, while the ECHOMAP UHD2 7” Ice Fishing Bundle has a touchscreen display with keyed assist and an included GT10HN-IF transducer for high-narrow CHIRP traditional sonar.
Both bundles offer a built-in flasher that provides a view of jigs and fish as they swim into the sonar beam, and the unique ice fishing sonar mode that optimizes your chartplotter for ice fishing right out of the box. They are also both preloaded with Garmin Navionics+ inland mapping with a one-year subscription to daily map updates.
All of Garmin’s versatile ice fishing bundles include a rugged, glove-friendly portable carrying case, and can be easily transitioned from the ice to the boat in the summer months when the ice thaws.
