Minn Kota i-Pilot

Minn Kota i-Pilot helps to automatically navigate and position the boat
100-1209gear minnkota

Minn Kota has unveiled a breakthrough innovation in trolling-motor technology with its wireless i-Pilot control system. i-Pilot integrates GPS into Riptide ST or SP bow-mount motors to navigate and position the boat. Anglers can program the record-a-track feature to store as many as three tracks measuring up to two miles long for retracing or a later return trip. The Spot-Lock mode works like an electronic anchor, holding the boat in place. If the boat drifts more than five feet away, the i-Pilot brings it back, correcting for wind, waves, current and drift. Up to three Spot-Lock locations may be stored for revisits. i-Pilot also offers Cruise Control to maintain real-time boat speed in 1/10 mph increments and Advanced AutoPilot, which uses a series of waypoints to maintain a true heading. i-Pilot comes as an add-on to new or current STs and SPs; cost is $399.99.
