The updated i-Pilot includes additional recording capacity and a new remote with improved functionality and enhanced durability. The most significant enhancement to i-Pilot is the updated remote. The LCD screen and function icons are 20% larger, and the keypad has improved visibility, durability, and tactile feel. The remote has a slimmer, more ergonomic design as well as an easy-access battery compartment.
Spot-Lock works like an electronic anchor, holding the boat in place. If the boat drifts more than five feet from the Spot-Lock location, i-Pilot will activate the trolling motor to keep the angler on the designated spot. It automatically corrects for wind, waves, current and drift. The "recall" feature for Spot-Lock provides the ability to return to that specific location at a later time. Up to six Spot-Lock locations can be stored at a time.
Record A Track allows an entire fishing track, up to a remarkable two miles in length, to be stored to memory (up to six separate tracks). When you want to retrace a course in either direction, i-Pilot's playback functions will automatically guide your boat along the track.
Cruise Control maintains real-time on-the-water boat speed in one-tenth mile-per-hour increments. This precise speed control allows the angler to dial in bait presentations in trolling applications.
Advanced AutoPilot utilizes GPS technology to maintain the boat path on a true heading while adjusting for wind, waves, current, and side-drift. This results in improved and more accurate tracking compared to traditional compass-based systems.
CoPilot is Minn Kota's wireless trolling motor control system and is integrated into the i-Pilot remote control. Anglers can control speed and steering from anywhere in the boat.
