The Tour model combines the Digital Advantage with Motorguide’s stainless steel shafts, metal pedals and heads. Digital Advantage allows you to dial into the precise speed you are searching for, and in turn results in longer lasting battery life.
MotorGuide Digital monitors your motor’s amp-draw, heat dissipation, output and other vital parameters, resulting in a cooler running, more durable motor with an extended service life. The Digital module is a self-contained, sealed module in the lower unit that brings all vital motor components together in one protected location, while eliminating outdated analog circuit boards and their related components.
