ORLANDO, Fla. –– Humminbird MEGA Live® received the award for best electronics at the ICAST 2021 New Product Showcase, currently underway in Orlando, Florida, as voted on by fishing media and retailers.
This new sonar technology, which rounds out the One-Boat Network® to give anglers the best-equipped boats on the water, delivers unparalleled clarity and detail of MEGA Imaging® in live action. MEGA Live Imaging technology allows anglers to see fish and structure in real time, even watching fish on screen as they move or even bite an angler’s lure. Now with the addition of MEGA Live, anglers will have access to the most complete package of industry technology to help them catch more fish.
“It was important for us to get it right with MEGA Live. Building a live sonar technology that could operate at the level of MEGA Imaging took time but it was definitely worth the wait,” said Humminbird Brand Manager Matt Cook. “It’s very rewarding to have our efforts recognized by an international collection of key opinion leaders in the fishing industry and we look forward to bringing MEGA Live to even more anglers this year.”
