Garmin continues to bolster its award-winning Panoptix LiveScope sonar with the addition of a new feature called Perspective Mode that gives anglers unprecedented overhead visibility, which will be a valuable tool in shallow water.
With the new Perspective Mode transducer mount, the LiveScope LVS32 transducer can be adjusted to fit an angler’s fishing techniques and preferences. The best part? No tools are required, and the chartplotter will automatically detect what mode is being used.

The transducer can be turned sideways to enable the top-down perspective mode to see a wider view of what’s in front of the boat – up to 50 feet away. Aiming the transducer forward allows users to see around the boat while pointing it down offers a view directly below the boat. All three modes provide sharp, real-time scanning sonar images of structure and fish moving toward or away from the boat and below the surface with remarkable target separation and clarity. LiveScope 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.
“Gone are the days of casting blindly under docks and along shorelines for schools or beds of fish thanks to the new LiveScope Perspective Mode,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “LiveScope combines two game-changing innovations – scanning sonar and live sonar – to deliver the best of both technologies.
