    Yep, my ONLY disappointment is not being able to record livescope.

    I'm 100% with you. They say it
    has all the tools you need for successful fishing. I need recording so I can learn and maybe teach others by making videos.

    The ability to elect and save waypoints by a user defined box from the map. Lowrance has this available.

    We currently can't upload our Quickdraw Contours files from our unit to the ActiveCaptain maps without first downloading/sharing them to the Quickdraw community, but it sure would come handy to do so.

    When you "sync user data" with ActiveCaptain, it already upload the waypoints and routes from the unit, doing the same for the Contours shouldn't be that hard...

    The ability to rollback to previous versions of software when the latest updates change your unit and images in a way that just doesn't work.
    Offer roll back software versions on the Garmin web page please!

    How about a separate transducer for perspective and forward use two monitors that was you get all the features and one doesn’t interfere with the other....turning the transducer is a pain .

    This would be a real game changer

    Livescope test app-

    For purposes of diagnosis of on the water results, it would be interesting if Garmin could write in the software a test app, like calibrate does, to where the user could do an on the water test of the unit in forward, down and/or perspective vu. This test would be for a defined or selectable duration with parameters of the test defined by Garmin such that the data would be recorded and stored. It then could be downloaded and sent to Garmin.
    The purpose of this app would be to capture the users settings, results of Livescope operation and then allow diagnosis across multiple determinants.

    Any on the water setting will have many conditions and may be changing but with all the inputs already going into the unit It should be possible to categorize the data, provide some performance results, and better diagnosis what’s going on for that particular snapshot. Even if the diagnostic is not completely refined, such as lower gain setting, it might provide multiple things to adjust. The results would appear for the parameters like the calibrate feature- key elements or possibly a whole range of results to review and adjust.

    This would not be published as the end all panacea for every setting but would provide crucial on the water data and inputs that the Livescope is seeing.
    Likewise if you are using Livescope in a 10 mph current, during low tide, after 3 days of rain in the back of a creek during full on pollen bloom it might it provide actionable data. But it is data that would tell you just how good or bad the setting is.

    MFD Remote in app - Wifi to cellular to internet to allow on the water remote in with Phone by Garmin tech. On the water troubleshooting with anyone you choose to share the screen..Obviously there would be an on and off feature to limit when sharing is allowed.

    Lots of good suggestions here
    I would second that there needs to be better Track management (see Lowrance) .


    Ability to turn networked Ultras ON/OFF independently. OR be able to disable sonar for a specific unit along with disable all sonar

    I realize there is a whole thread on this, but even adding a TRANSMIT on/off next to the pause button would be nice. I try to minimize the time my transducers are pinging out of water. The way it is now you would have to go in and turn transmit off for LS and sonar. If you disable all sonar and then you go back to console , that unit is also disabled
