Panoptix LiveScope™ Plus System - We Took Scanning Sonar and Made It Panoptix™
- See highly detailed, easy-to-interpret live scanning sonar images of structure, bait and fish swimming below and around your boat in real time, even when your boat is stationary- Easily adjust the transducer to fit your fishing techniques; point forward to see around your boat, or point down to see directly below your boat- See incredibly sharp real-time scanning sonar images up to 200’ down and away- Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) stabilizes sonar view on chartplotter screen, even in rough conditions- Simple plug-and-play Garmin Marine Network connector makes it easy to install and seamlessly integrate with your compatible Garmin chartplotter
Clearly, this is the most amazing sonar technology ever. You have never fished like this before. Panoptix LiveScope is live, real-time scanning sonar. You can actually see easy-to-interpret live scanning sonar images of fish swimming near clearly defined structure. You can even see your lure as you retrieve it. And your boat doesn’t need to be moving. These images are so clear and precise that with a little practice, you might be able to distinguish between species of fish!
Two Modes in One Transducer
You get both LiveScope™ Down and LiveScope™ Forward modes in one transducer. It’s easy to adjust the transducer mode to fit your fishing techniques; use LiveScope Forward to see remarkably clear images of structure and swimming fish around your boat, and use LiveScope Down to see directly below your boat. The view automatically updates on your compatible Garmin chartplotter. AHRS stabilization keeps your sonar view steady, even in rough conditions.
Panoptix LiveScope Down
LiveScope Down mode allows you to see live, easy-to-interpret scanning sonar images of structure and swimming fish in incredible detail below your boat —up to 200’ — even while your boat is stationary.
Panoptix LiveScope Forward
LiveScope Forward mode is an excellent tool for scouting and fishing out ahead of your cast. You’re looking at live, highly detailed and easy-to-interpret scanning sonar images of structure and fish swimming all around your boat — up to 200’ — even while your boat is stationary.
The Panoptix LiveScope scanning sonar system includes a compact GLS 10 sonar black box with LVS34 transducer and simple plug-and-play Garmin Marine Network connector, making it easy to install and seamlessly integrate with your compatible Garmin chartplotter. Use the transducer as a supplemental traditional and ClearVü sonar source to see a historical representation of structure and fish below your boat.

Serious cruisers, sailors and sail racers demand serious equipment. The easy-to-use, easy-to-install GPSMAP 8616 chartplotter delivers MFD performance in a combo-size package. It features a 16” full HD IPS touchscreen display for wider viewing angles, superior clarity and sunlight readability, even with polarized sunglasses. Multiple displays can be flat mounted edge-to-edge to create a sleek glass helm look or can be mounted flush. It also provides standard USB touch output for use as a touchscreen monitor for Windows® and Mac® operating systems.
Build Your Marine System
NMEA 2000 networking and the Garmin Marine Network allow you to easily build your full marine electronics suite — from radar and autopilots to cameras, instruments and forward-looking sonar — controlled from your chartplotter and shared across multiple screens. In addition, our exclusive OneHelm™ system coordinates many third-party manufactured onboard marine products to bring full control of systems — such as digital switching, lighting, stabilization and more — conveniently to your chartplotter screen.
The GPSMAP 8616 chartplotter has a premium-performance processor that enables fast map drawing, superior networking, video distribution and more. Built-in Wi-Fi technology lets you pair with the free ActiveCaptain® app for access to OneChart™, smart notifications¹, Garmin Quickdraw™ community data and more. You can also control video streaming from our GC™ 100 wireless camera and VIRB® action cameras. In addition, built-in ANT wireless technology connects you directly to our quatix® marine watch, gWind™ Wireless 2 transducer and wireless remote controls.
SmartMode Station Controls
Networked sonar, radar, cameras, media and digital switching can be independent or incorporated into SmartMode station controls. With SmartMode, everything is designed to give you quick, one-touch access to the information you need to ease high-stress situations such as docking.
The Best of Garmin with the Best of Navionics®
For the most detailed, clear and concise charts and maps, GPSMAP 8616 includes expandable memory for accessory map purchases such as BlueChart® g3 and BlueChart® g3 Vision featuring Navionics data. The charts and maps also include our Auto Guidance technology, which shows a suggested route to a destination², based on your boat’s specifications.
Sit Back and Take Control
You don’t have to stand for hours at the helm. The optional easy-to-use GRID™ 20 remote input device provides intuitive remote access and control of your entire Garmin marine system. It features a 360-degree joystick with a rotary knob and push-to-select button for easy chartplotter menu/setting navigation and fine control, even in the worst conditions.
Special Sailing Features
To help you make informed decisions, the Garmin SailAssist feature provides critical data displays and prerace guidance to help you gain a competitive edge. Other sailing features include laylines, enhanced wind rose, heading and course-over-ground lines, true wind data fields and tide/current/time slider. Gauge displays provide need-to-know information at a glance, including true and apparent wind angle, set and drift, true or apparent wind speed, horizontal or vertical graphs and a data bar with customizable fields.
