ICAST 2022: New MEGA Live Imaging TargetLock™ Revolutionizes Live Sonar & Boat Control

 New MEGA Live TargetLock delivers independent live sonar control


It’s no secret that Humminbird MEGA Live Imaging® has given anglers an unprecedented real-time view under the water and a better understanding how to trigger more bites. Additionally, anglers everywhere have experienced how Minn Kota’s Spot Lock® changed boat control forever, giving them the ability to hold on a spot and catch more fish with less effort. Now, with the introduction of the all-new MEGA Live Imaging TargetLock™, these two groundbreaking technologies can be fully utilized together. Anglers will no longer need to choose between two of fishing’s most powerful technologies – Spot-Lock and MEGA Live, making it easier to stay on and catch more fish.  

Humminbird announces the next innovation in live sonar technology with the launch of the all new MEGA Live Imaging TargetLock. Adding to Humminbird’s best-in-class sonar technologies, this new live sonar accessory provides anglers with the ability 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.
