    Question Humminbird Mega Live mounts

    Well I finally got my hands on the elusive Mega Live.
    So now the question is mounting. I have researched quite a few mount systems.
    My question, is there a mounting system that will fit under my 2019 FX-21 cover?
    I know there are many different types out there and they are all changing daily.
    So those with hands on, installs. Give us a clue on what works best with Skeeter setup.

    Leaning towards a motorized mount. The Livescanner Pro is leading the way with the
    swing mount.

    And I would be open to anything that is a viable option for Ultrex mount. (hand operated)

    Back to the wiring game! I guess I have a month or more, some of the producers are changing
    their systems.

    I have been doing some investigation into these mounts but have not bought one yet. A buddy has a rite hite but I do not like it. So far, the one from All Aboard Marine (a BBC Sponsor) is the front runner for me.

    Well, everyone is just a slight bit different from their competition.
    I was told this by the guys at the boat shop.
    If you add anything, M360 and/or add a mega live or both.
    You must modify the boat cover to fit. Cost $400 - 500

    I had my cover modified to fit 2 Helix units up front, Mega360 and Mega Live. It cost me $100 at a local shop to add the extra Aqualon fabric and padding.

    Didn’t have any issues after adding 360, Livescope, and double bow mount. Factory cover still fits like a glove (Skeeter). Changing trolling motor shaft lengths would be the difficult one.

    Are you guys mounting Live on the TM Shaft or independent mounting shafts?

    On the TM shaft for me.

    So I'm considering putting Mega Live on my boat. For those that have it, what are your thoughts? I would be buying it from a local who didn't enjoy using it for various reasons.
