All new for 2012, the i-Pilot is a wireless trolling system that uses GPS receivers to automatically navigate and position your boat.
The Spot-Lock feature 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. The updated i-Pilot now includes additional recording capacity and a new remote with enhanced functionality and durability. The remote’s LCD screen and function icons are twenty percent larger for increased visibility and the keypad has an improved tactile feel. The i-Pilot is now capable of storing a total of six Spot-Lock and six Record A Track locations along with Cruise Control which lets you maintain GPS-based trolling speed and course. The enhanced i-Pilot system is available either pre-installed or as an add-on accessory for earlier Terrova and PowerDrive V2 bow-mount models. The latest model i-Pilot remote can be purchased separately for use with the original i-Pilot systems but will not include the additional storage capacity.
