The LVS62 transducer can be easily changed into 3 positions for Forward mode, LiveScope Down mode and Perspective mode with the included mounts.

If you have an existing LiveScope system, whether it be the original LiveScope or LiveScope Plus- you may upgrade your system by simply swapping your LVS32/LVS34 transducer for the LVS62. By keeping your existing GLS 10- upgrading your system is quick and easy!
