Humminbird MEGA Live Imaging TargetLock Gives Anglers Seamless MEGA Live and Spot-Lock Integration

Humminbird MEGA Live TargetLock gives anglers the ability to use their Minn Kota Spot-Lock and Humminbird MEGA Live independently of each other.

Minn Kota Spot-Lock® changed the way anglers fished, giving them the ability to hold boat positioning on a specific spot and fish it to its fullest. Humminbird MEGA Live Imaging® gives anglers an unprecedented view of the underwater world around them. Anglers have been given the power of these two tools but have not had the ability to use them both simultaneously…until now.

Now adding to Humminbird’s best-in-class sonar technologies, MEGA Live TargetLock™ provides anglers the ability to control their MEGA Live transducer with either their Minn Kota Ultrex footpedal or independently using a stand-alone foot pedal, wireless remote or Humminbird fish finder. To give anglers the best possible experience on the water, these two groundbreaking technologies can be used in tandem – allowing users to make the most of their MEGA Live Imaging without sacrificing their Minn Kota’s Spot-Lock.

Humminbird MEGA Live TargetLock Key Features

  • MEGA Live TargetLock is independently mounted of the trolling motor shaft, providing full and simultaneous use of MEGA Live Imaging and all Ultrex features.
  • Wireless foot pedal provides control of left/right steering, TargetLock and programmable One-Boat Network button
  • Control MEGA Live from the included wireless foot pedal, Humminbird fish finder or optional hand remote
  • Backed by a Two-Year Warranty

With the Ultrex and MEGA Live TargetLock combination, anglers can receive a new arsenal of capabilities to take their fishing to new heights. With modes such as MEGA Live TargetLock, MEGA Live Sweep, Minn Kota Steer and a One-Boat Network button – efficiency with your Ultrex and MEGA Live imaging is at an all-time high.
