The best of both tecnologies in one!
It’s no secret that Humminbird MEGA Live Imaging® has provided anglers with an unprecedented real-time view beneath the water as well as a better understanding of how to trigger more bites. Furthermore, anglers all over the world have witnessed how Minn Kota’s Spot-Lock® ultimately changed boat control forever, allowing them to hold on to a spot and catch more fish with less effort. With the introduction of the all-new MEGA Live Imaging TargetLock, these two ground-breaking technologies can now be used in tandem. Anglers will no longer have to choose between two of the most powerful technologies in fishing – Spot-Lock and MEGA Live – making it easier to stay on and catch more fish.
This new live sonar accessory adds to Humminbird’s best-in-class sonar technologies by allowing anglers to control a MEGA Live transducer independently of their Ultrex trolling motor’s steering, giving anglers back the power of Spot-Lock and boat control with their Ultrex motor, while introducing live sonar innovations exclusive to MEGA Live TargetLock and Minn Kota Ultrex users.
Taking live sonar to the next level
TargetLock will undoubtedly be known as the most powerful new invention in live sonar, among a slew of other new features. The TargetLock feature locks the MEGA Live onto structure and keeps it in clear view with the push of a button by automatically adjusting the MEGA Live transducer as the boat moves position and changes direction. TargetLock does all of the work to keep the boat focused on structure and fish, whether the boat is moving, drifting, or Spot-Lock is engaged.
Joe Brown, Senior Director of Brand Management for Humminbird and Minn Kota, claimed that since the invention of live sonar, anglers have had to give up boat control in order to use it. “The trolling motor and MEGA Live may both be used fully and independently thanks to the hard work of our team. Not only are fishermen once again able to use Spot-Lock with MEGA Live, but we have also raised the bar with a number of features that will turn Humminbird’s MEGA Live TargetLock and Minn Kota Ultrex into the most cutting-edge and effective electronics pairing on the water.”
