See Fish Before They See You with Humminbird Mega 360 Imaging

When employing traditional Down and Side Imaging, which is perfectly suited for certain scenarios, the view of what’s hiding below the surface of the water is limited to that which is directly below or to the side of the angler’s boat. Further, unless the boat is in motion the view remains static until fish swim into the sonar’s line of sight. This is where Humminbird’s MEGA 360 Imaging comes into play. With a complete 360-degree field of view, MEGA 360 Imaging gives anglers the ability to spot fish, structure and changes in bottom contour in any direction while trolling or sitting still, all without fear of spooking fish.

Humminbird MEGA 360 Imaging shows the clearest, sharpest imaging returns ever found on a fish finder—all around your boat!


Humminbird MEGA 360 Imaging shows anglers exactly where structure is in front of, to the side of and behind the boat, both while under the power of a Minn Kota trolling motor as well as in a GPS-locked location with Spot-Lock. With the addition of MEGA Imaging, this 360-degree view is shown in greater detail, with a clearer image than ever before, and now the field of view spans a full 125 feet in all directions displaying the largest area ever imagined.

MEGA 360 Imaging allows the angler to manipulate the underwater picture displayed on their Humminbird screen to exactly fit their needs. The 360-degree view shows everything around the boat out to a distance of 125 feet, but when a smaller, more focused range is required the view can be set anywhere from 10 to 360 degrees. With six different refresh rates MEGA 360 Imaging allows the angler to dial-in the perfect blend of image quality and updated view to suit their specific needs at that moment. Once fish or structure is located, MEGA 360 Imaging allows the angler to mark waypoints on their Humminbird with an accessory heading sensor GPS puck. Casting range rings displayed on the screen show exactly how far from the boat the waypoint is located so the next cast can be made right where it’s needed, without any delay, and without spooking the fish.



Maintain full access and control of your trolling motor, including Spot-Lock on Ultrex, without sacrificing the ability to clearly see MEGA 360 Imaging returns. MEGA 360 Imaging is mounted independent of your trolling motor’s steering (Ultrex, Fortrex, Maxxum) so you have full function of both at the same time. There is no need to sacrifice critical boat control when using CHIRP digital sonar, resulting in better detail, greater clarity, improved target separation, with reduced noise for the clearest 360 Imaging picture ever—it truly needs to be seen and experienced to be believed.
