More details on the Garmin Perspective Mode Mount

Stacey B.

Product Research


Overview: The Garmin Perspective Mode Mount (010-12970-00) works with the Panoptix LiveScope scanning sonar system to add an overhead (or perspective) sonar view to the down and forward views provided by the LVS32 transducer. The overhead view works well for scouting and fishing in shallow water. The mount lets you easily switch between the three views, while your chartplotter automatically detects which mode you're in (Note: Auto-detection is not a feature on all chartplotters). The Perspective Mode Mount comes with the hardware necessary to mount the transducer, whether you prefer it on the port or starboard side of the trolling motor shaft. A 5mm hex wrench is included to tighten the bolts during installation.

Software Update Required: When you install the Perspective Mode Mount, you must update the software on the Garmin chartplotter and the LiveScope system. You can update the chartplotter via Wi-Fi, using the ActiveCaptain app on a compatible Android or Apple device. If you don't have Wi-Fi, you can use your Windows or Mac computer to load the software onto an SD (or microSD) card, whichever card your chartplotter accepts.

Installation: The Perspective Mode Mount comes with extension arms marked with "P" or "S" for mounting the transducer on the port or starboard side of the trolling motor shaft. The shaft bracket fits standard sized shafts. If mounting to a 1" diameter shaft, you should use the included rubber insert for a non-slip fit. The included stickers are to be attached to the LiveScope's LVS32 transducer -- one sticker is for mounts on the port side and the other is for starboard side mounts. Once the LVS32 is attached to the mount, you can position the transducer for Perspective (overhead), Down, or Forward view, whichever one you believe works best for the fishing location. The position of the extension arm corresponds with the marks on the sticker for the chosen view. A compatible chartplotter should be able to automatically detect the view you have chosen.
