Installation Instructions

  • i-Pilot® GPS Trolling System: The most-trusted GPS system in fishing. i-Pilot® uses GPS to control your trolling motor with incredible features that keep you on the fish. Set Spot-Locks, record paths, control speed and steering, and more. i-Pilot makes boat positioning and control automatic, and you can take command from its easy-to-read large LCD screen.
  • Spot-Lock: Just press a button, and Spot-Lock will hold you in place with unparalleled GPS accuracy. Available on i-Pilot GPS systems, Spot-Lock gives you the power to stay right on top of any productive fishing spot automatically, without touching your trolling motor. Spot-Lock with jog can be accomplished by adding a heading sensor (sold separately, 1866680). You can use Jog to move your Spot-Lock location five feet in any direction. Activate Spot-Lock from the i-Pilot remote.
  • AutoPilot™: Automatically navigate your boat in any direction you choose. Just point the head of your trolling motor in the direction you want to travel, activate AutoPilot™, and your trolling motor will keep you on that heading automatically, even correcting for wind, waves and current.
  • Mobile App Compatibility: Control i-Pilot directly from your Apple® or Android™ device with our mobile app. You get quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock and Advanced AutoPilot — plus the ability to update i-Pilot software.

    All parts were accounted for and fit flawlessly, could use instructions but a quick YouTube search made it an easy upgrade.

    I-Pilot upgrade

    I ordered from your knowledgeable staff the upgrade for my 55lb thrust minn-kota. It was a very straight forward install. The printed instructions were a little difficult to my "old eyes" per my son, but with his assistance, It installed in about 25 minutes and works flawlessly. Trolled the next day on a nearby lake for 5 hours, had 50% battery left when I left the lake.
    Couldn't be happier. Truly made my pro-skiff a 1 man operation....Thanks, caught a few hybrid bass to boot!


    Love this product. It has made controlling my trolling motor easy as can be. With the remote I can control movement from anywhere in the boat. Lots of other features as well. Easy process to purchase from vendor. Highly recommend.

    Works well and easy to install.

    I got my trolling motor during COVID-19 and wasn't able to get a spotlock at the time due to supply chain shortages. This upgrade kit is perfect. It works flawlessly and is installed in 30 minutes with basic tools.
