Garmin Wins Best of Category in Ice Fishing at ICAST 2021

The Garmin LiveScope Ice Fishing Bundle LI brought home top honors in the Ice Fishing Category at the ICAST 2021 New Product Showcase.

For the fourth year in a row, Garmin has snagged a Best of Category award at the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST). This year, it’s our Garmin LiveScope™ Ice Fishing Bundle LI, which provides a premium fishing experience with its advanced sonar technology and lightweight lithium-ion battery.

What does “Best of Category” mean exactly? It’s precisely what it sounds like. Voted on by industry media and buyers at the fishing industry’s most prestigious tradeshow, the LiveScope Ice Fishing Bundle LI was deemed top of the line in the Ice Fishing category in the New Product Showcase.

Released in July 2021 and available for purchase in the fall, the LiveScope Ice Fishing Bundle LI is a chartplotter and transducer bundle with Panoptix™ LiveScope sonar powered by a lightweight lithium battery. And we do mean lightweight — it weighs in at 3.4 pounds, which is a third of the weight of comparable lead acid batteries, and it provides 65% more battery life. This means it’s easier for you to carry from hole to hole and will keep you fishing hours longer than you would have been able to previously.

The transducer features two modes — LiveScope™ Forward and LiveScope™ Down — that allow anglers to see sonar images of fish and surrounding structures in real time up to 200’ in any direction below the ice. The included chartplotter — ECHOMAP™ UHD 93sv — grants one-press access to all an angler’s favorite pages and is preloaded with LakeVü g3 maps that cover more than 18,000 lakes with up to 1’ fishing contours. The bundle also comes equipped with a swivel pole mount for the transducer, a battery charger and a LiveScope transducer cable that stays flexible in low temperatures — all in a portable bag to make it easy to handle on the ice.
