The Minn Kota i-Pilot Replacement Remote includes additional recording capacity and a new remote with improved functionality and enhanced durability.
The most significant enhancement to i-Pilot is the updated remote. The LCD screen and function icons are 20% larger and the keypad has improved visibility, durability, and tactile feel.
The remote has a slimmer, more ergonomic design as well as an easy-access battery compartment.
The i-Pilot is capable of storing a total of six Spot-Lock and six Record A Track locations compared to three locations each on the original version.
Available for select saltwater and freshwater models, the new i-Pilot can be purchased already installed on select Minn Kota Terrova™, PowerDrive V2™, Riptide® ST or Riptide SP bow-mount trolling motors, or as an accessory. The remote can be purchased separately for use with the original i-Pilot systems but will not include the additional storage space.
The following are the key features of i-Pilot:
Spot-Lock 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. It automatically corrects for wind, waves, current and drift. The "recall" feature for Spot-Lock provides the ability to return to that specific location at a later time. Up to six Spot-Lock locations can be stored at a time.
Record A Track allows an entire fishing track, up to a remarkable two miles in length, to be stored to memory (up to six separate tracks). When you want to retrace a course in either direction, i-Pilot's playback functions will automatically guide your boat along the track.
Cruise Control maintains real-time on-the-water boat speed in one-tenth mile-per-hour increments. This precise speed control allows the angler to dial in bait presentations in trolling applications.
Advanced AutoPilot™ utilizes GPS technology to maintain the boat path on a true heading while adjusting for wind, waves, current and side-drift. This results in improved and more accurate tracking compared to traditional compass-based systems.
CoPilot™ is Minn Kota's wireless trolling motor control system and is integrated into the i-Pilot remote control. Anglers can control speed and steering from anywhere in the boat.

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.Read More
Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.Read More
For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.Read More
