That's how it works best. I use it on my little boat pretty much as soon as it is of the trailer. The only 2 functions that I seem to use are the autopilot (the little circle with an arrow and "N" in it) and cruise control (the little button with a speedometer thing in it). Point the motor the way you want to go, set the speed and relax. The guys over at MinnKota really got it right. ðŸ‘

I think I can make a turn tighter without tangling lines in the back , just seems like with the bow mount that it turns/tracks/follows better than using the steering/kicker on the back !!!! But need a bigger spread with diver rods out to tell for sure !!!! Only ran two riggers today and I can turn pretty tight with just those out...........I'll be using it more from now on for sure...........
