    New Garmin LiveScope XR just announced.
    No doubt electronics companies have been going back and forth 🥊 1-upping each other, which is good news for us. This new technology from Garmin brings “an extended range for deeper and open waters” to their LiveScope system:

    Info from here:

    > …today unveiled LiveScope XR , the latest addition to its award-winning live-scanning sonar lineup, now with an extended range for deeper and open waters. With excellent image sharpness at both close and long ranges simultaneously, LiveScope XR delivers real-time images of fish and structure up to 500′ in front of or below the boat – over 200% more range than the leading competitor system.

    > With an optimized design for deeper water, the LiveScope XR transducer has extended elements so anglers can see both long- and close-range views in real time. Anglers can see further around and below the boat – up to 500′ in freshwater… – and the Reverse Range feature allows them to utilize more of the screen to display fish and structure.

    > To see detail closer to the boat, the Compress Range feature displays a live look in sharp detail up close, while still allowing the angler to keep an eye on targets further away at the same time.

    > The LiveScope XR System includes a compact GLS 10 black box with a LiveScope XR LVS62 transducer, along with a trolling motor barrel and shaft mounting kit, perspective mount bracket and a simple plug-and-play Garmin Marine Network connector for easy installation and integration with a compatible [screen].

    > With a free software update, the LVS62 transducer…can be added to an existing LiveScope System black box for customers who want to upgrade.

    > Both the LiveScope XR System and the LiveScope XR LVS62 are available now, with suggested retail prices of $2,999.99 and $2,499.99 respectively.

    I originally assumed it was geared more towards salt water (?) but could definitely see crossover in the walleye world. Specifically walleyes suspended over open-water, which are usually BIG ones.

    Imagine being able to scan 500′ 😳 when looking for wads of Lake Erie walleye….

    Does anyone ever try livescope aimed at a rapala being trolled? Maybe with the long range you could see the fish react to the lure.

    yes, this works well… not sure how far back you troll but my LVS34 can see pretty well about 140’ back…
