Well it was bound to happen. First we had MEGA DI and MEGA SI to see straight down under the boat and out to both sides of the boat. Now Humminbird is adding to our arsenal of tools to make locating fish much easier. MEGA 360 lets you see all the way around the boat. Locate structures and fish out to a distance of 125 feet away from your boat in high resolution. This makes fishing even more fun. You will know exactly where to make your next cast. You will be able to see the fish in high definition before you throw out the lure.
You will not have to change the direction of your boat or loose control of your trolling motor because the spindle that turns to gather the MEGA 360 images is mounted separate from your trolling motor. You control direction and speed of the motor while MEGA 360 sends you sonar sweeps from around your boat of structures and fish. You will be able to view the MEGA 360 image next to your fish finder image on the split screen of your Humminbird display. You will have the ability to vary the viewing area and sweep speed and be able to change the information displayed and sonar zoom. Everything you need to have fishing success!
Set your waypoints directly on the MEGA 360 screen. The scan rings tell you how far a waypoint is from the boat so you will know how far to cast to hit the target. Having that waypoint set makes it easier for you to revisit that location if you want to.
The MEGA 360 will be compatible with all SOLIX model fish finders and HELIX G3N units with MEGA Plus Imaging. These MEGA 360 transducers will be compatible with Minn Kota Ulterrex, Fortrex, and Maxxum model trolling motors.
MEGA 360 will be available December 2019.
