The Minn Kota i-Pilot Link System for PowerDrive V2 does everything i-Pilot can do and adds the ability for your Minn Kota trolling motor and Humminbird fishfinder to talk to each other.
Store and automatically retrace your best spots and paths, follow depth contours with LakeMaster digital GPS maps, and more. The Link system features a new control head for the motor, a wireless remote and all necessary cables for installation.
Follow The Contour
If you're fishing at a certain depth, i-Pilot Link can keep you on it automatically. With a LakeMaster SD card in your Humminbird, i-Pilot Link will follow any contour you choose - in either direction - for as long as you want.
*Follow The Contour feature available only on i-Pilot Link enabled LakeMaster Digital GPS Maps.
You can also stay a set distance from a depth contour or the shoreline by activating Contour Offset. Set your boat a certain distance from either a selected depth contour or the shoreline, and cast to it all day long.
Follow any LakeMaster® depth contour you choose, automatically, or cast to it from a set distance with Contour Offset.
Spot-Lock for i-Pilot Link
Spot-Lock helps keep you within 5 feet of a fishing spot, like an electronic anchor. When your boat begins to drift more than 5 feet from your selected fishing spot, i-Pilot Link will take you back automatically.
Go To Spot-Lock...Use Go To Spot-Lock to return to your spot, and lock back into it upon arrival.
Go To Waypoint...Return to a stored waypoint with Go To Waypoint. It automatically takes you to your select waypoint at any speed you choose, and upon arrival, you can go into Spot-Lock, AutoPilot™ or shut off the prop.
Never lose another successful trolling path. iTracks are paths in the water (up to 2 miles long) that you can store and retrace whenever you want.
Go To iTrack...Return to your stored tracks with Go To iTrack. It automatically takes you to the closest waypoint of your selected track, and lets you retrace the path in either direction.
Advanced AutoPilot for i-Pilot Link
Stay on any heading you choose with unparalleled GPS accuracy while compensating for wind, waves, current and side drift. Just set a heading by using your Humminbird cursor or pointing the motor head in the direction you want to travel. Then push a button and let i-Pilot Link keep you on that heading.
CoPilot for i-Pilot Link
Take wireless command of speed, steering and on/off from anywhere on the boat with the CoPilot functions on your i-Pilot Link remote.
Cruise Control for i-Pilot Link
Entice fish with perfect bait presentation by using Cruise Control. Lock in your actual on-the-water speed and adjust it in .1 mile-per-hour increments.

Having just wrapped up its ninth year, the Boise River Watershed Watch program is an increasingly popular citizen science program in Boise, Idaho. It takes interested volunteers and joins them with expert scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) who teach them about the river’s health and sampling water quality using transparency tubes, dip nets and chemical test kits. “Our focus is to educate folks on the parameters that we measure, to give them an idea of the river’s health,” said Tim Merrick, public information officer at the USGS’ Idaho Water Science Center. “So they can collect data on the river’s conditions and get plugged in.Read More
Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California - San Diego have designed and built a diver-operated underwater microscope to study millimeter-scale processes as they naturally occur on the seafloor. The research team has observed coral turf wars, coral polyp “kissing” and much more using the new microscopic technology. Many important biological processes in the ocean take place at microscopic scales, but when scientists remove organisms from their native habitats to study them in the lab, much of the information and its context are lost. In a quest to overcome this challenge, Scripps oceanographers developed the new type of underwater microscope to image marine microorganisms in their natural settings without disturbing them.Read More
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
