Additional Hardware to improve your fishing experience.

Humminbird MEGA 360 Imaging is an additional transducer that allows you to view underwater in 360-degrees. It is not live sonar, but gives you a wider view of bottom structure surrounding your boat.

Using the MEGA 360 alongside the MEGA Live is the best practice. The MEGA 360 lets you see all around the bottom. Once you find the structure and where the fish are holding, you can then use MEGA Live to fine tune your approach.
