Garmin’s Panoptix LiveScope lets anglers distinguish species of fish, even when the boat isn’t moving. To see directly below the boat, point the transducer down. To see around the boat, point it forward. Its attitude-heading reference system constantly adjusts to compensate for the boat’s motion. Panoptix LiveScope includes a GLS 10 sonar black box and an LVS32 transducer, and is plug-and-play. Kits for mounting on the trolling motor and transom are included. Panoptix LiveScope is compatible with many Garmin GPSMap devices. $1,499. garmin.com/panoptix
