About the Garmin LiveScope™ Plus System

See and catch more fish with ease

Garmin's original Panoptix LiveScope system impressed our customers with its versatility, ease of use, and accuracy. One reviewer reported: "This thing is amazing shows fish on the screen like you are under water looking at them," and who are we to argue? Garmin took the success of that system and dramatically improved the transducer's imaging for the LiveScope Plus. Where the original transducer/sonar module combo offered two modes of imaging when used with a compatible Garmin GPSMAP or ECHOMAP chartplotter, this system adds an overhead Perspective Mode that's especially helpful for scouting your quarry in shallow water.

Note: You'll need a compatible chartplotter to see any images generated by the LiveScope system.

Improved target separation and images

LiveScope Plus is live, real-time scanning sonar. You can actually see easy-to-interpret images of fish swimming near clearly defined structures — this transducer offers a 35% improvement in target separation over its predecessor, with minimal noise and on-screen artifacts. And your boat doesn't even need to be moving. It works just fine when you're anchored or floating, with images so clear and precise that you may be able to see different species of fish!

Three kinds of sonar

This transducer features both LiveScope Forward sonar, which shows the structure and fish ahead and around your boat, and LiveScope Down sonar, which shows you what's below and around your boat. Just point your trolling motor in the direction you want, and see what's out there. The included Perspective Mode mount lets you employ both views, and it offers a handy overhead view of the action, which is nice for checking things out in shallow water. You also get traditional mounting options for the shaft or barrel of your trolling motor. Built-in AHRS (Attitude Heading Reference System) stabilization keeps the view steady, even when you're fishing in rough conditions.

Everything you need for installation

The LiveScope Plus system includes a compact Garmin GLS 10 sonar module and the new LVS34 transducer, plus a marine network connector that makes it easy to integrate everything with your compatible Garmin chartplotter. Use the included hardware to mount the transducer directly to the transom, or mount it to the shaft or motor barrel of your trolling motor for easy adjustment to suit your fishing style.

Features

Overview: The Garmin LiveScope™ Plus System is an add-on sonar transducer for select GPSMAP and ECHOMAP Plus chartplotters. The system consists of the LVS34 LiveScope Sonar Transducer and the GLS 10 Sonar Module. The slim-profile transducer is designed to install in a variety of ways to help you see live images of what is happening under the water up to 200 feet away from your boat. The LVS34 offers three LiveScope modes--Forward, Down, and Perspective. The transducer comes with 20 feet of cable, and mounting brackets and hardware. The Sonar Module connects to the boat's battery and provides power to the transducer, and sonar signals to your chartplotter.

Note: A compatible Garmin chartplotter is required to display the sonar views.

Compatibility: The LiveScope Plus System is compatible with the following Garmin chartplotters:

  • EchoMAP™ UHD: 72cv, 72sv, 73cv, 73sv, 74cv, 74sv, 75cv, 75sv, 92sv, 93sv, 94sv, 95sv

LiveScope Plus Sonar: LiveScope Plus sonar gives you a real-time, realistic view of what's in the water around, under, or in front of your boat. LiveScope Plus utilizes the latest technology to deliver better resolution with less noise and improved target separation. It has a built-in stabilization system for steadier images on your chartplotter screen, even when the water is choppy. You can choose from seven vivid color options to help you see the fish and underwater structure more clearly and with better contrast. LiveScope Plus sonar is effective whether your boat is moving or stationary. Other types of sonar require your boat to be moving, and show images of fish you have already passed over. LiveScope Plus sonar has a narrow 20° beam angle for crisp, improved resolution and clear images, out to 200 feet. The LVS34 offers the choice of three LiveScope Mode options:

  • Forward Mode: LiveScope Forward Mode lets you see structure and fish ahead and around your boat. You can also see your lure, and how fish react to your lure. When the transducer is mounted for LiveScope Forward mode, it should be angled forward and slightly downward.
  • Down Mode: LiveScope Down Mode shows moving sonar images below your boat, and allows you to pinpoint your targets' distance left or right and their depths. It is recommended for vertical fishing and jigging. For LiveScope Down mode, the transducer is mounted facing straight down.
  • Perspective Mode: LiveScope Perspective Mode lets you see under the water with a view from your perspective above the water. The Perspective View is very useful for scouting and fishing in shallow water.

Mounting Options: The LiveScope system comes with the hardware for mounting the transducer in a variety of ways. The installation hardware is divided into bags labeled A through F, and the needed bags are listed in the Installation Instructions depending upon which mount type you choose. The transducer can be mounted to either the starboard or port side, with a perspective, forward, or downward view. The available mounting methods are as follows:

  • Trolling Motor Barrel Mount: The Trolling Motor barrel mount provides the maximum unobstructed view of the sonar beam. The mount includes a hose clamp and bracket for installing the transducer directly to the side of trolling motor barrel. This is the preferred mounting method for the LiveScope Down mode, or if you plan to switch between the forward and down modes.
  • Trolling Motor Shaft Mount: Mounting the transducer to the trolling motor shaft is the preferred method for the LiveScope Forward mode. It provides maximum separation between the motor and the transducer, which optimizes the performance of the magnetic compass function. The trolling motor shaft bracket features an 8° cant to reduce the effects of the trolling motor barrel interference with the transducer beam.
  • Perspective Mount: The Perspective Mount provides a forward-looking view, and mounts to the trolling motor shaft. The bracket has an 11° angle to allow the extension arm to transition between all three sonar views. Using the Perspective View bracket, the transducer can be used for perspective, downward, and forward views.
  • Transom Mount: An optional transom mount bracket is available from Garmin for mounting the transducer to the transom.

LiveScope GLS 10 Module: The LiveScope GLS 10 sonar "black box" can be mounted horizontally or vertically to any flat surface. Four "keyhole" slots are provided to secure the module to the mounting surface. It features four connections across the front panel: ground, power (2-pin threaded connection / connects to battery and ground), Network (threaded 9-pin connection / connects to chartplotter), and Transducer (threaded 21-pin connection / connects to transducer). The GLS 10 has a status LED to inform you of its current conditions. The LED flashes green to indicate proper connection and operation, and orange during software updates. Red flashes indicate some type of failure, either by an incorrect connection, excessive input voltage, or other sonar failure.

Software Update: Before installing the LiveScope Plus system to your chartplotter, you may need to update your device's software. New chartplotter software is available on the Garmin website. If the chartplotter has Wi-Fi technology, you can update the software using the ActiveCaptain app (available for Android or Apple iOS devices). If it doesn't have Wi-Fi, you can download the new software to a memory card, or request a preloaded software memory card from Garmin support. Follow the instructions for updating the software for your device.

Compass Calibration: If you wish to use the magnetic compass feature, you must mount the transducer on the trolling motor shaft, and not on the motor itself to avoid magnetic interference. Once you have installed the transducer, you will need calibrate the compass. Failure to do so may cause errors in your boat's position and heading, and may prevent some map features to be unavailable. You should follow the procedure for calibrating the sonar on your chartplotter.

Maintenance: From time to time, you may need to clean the transducer if aquatic growth affects the device's performance. It can be cleaned with a soft cloth and mild detergent. For severe growth, you can use a scouring pad or putty knife to remove it.
