GPS/ipilot trolling motor


Double-D

Recommended Posts

 

Hey guys I have a helix 5 humming bird fishfinder. I am wondering/looking at what brands would be best. Any advice would be much appreciated. Want to make sure I get the best bang for the buck. Won’t be a purchase right now but looking into.

I have seen the ones humming bird recommends but figured I’d ask you guys since I have never used one.

 

Thanks

If your intention is to network your trolling motor and sonar together, if you go the Humminbird route you will need a Minn Kota with iPilot + LINK (not just iPilot), and a networkable Humminbird unit (Helix G2N, G3N).  I don't believe any of the Helix 5s are networkable.  If you solely want to run a sonar off your trolling motor, you can use about any Sonar with the Minn Kota Terrovas that have Universal Sonar.

 

@Yankee Troller is a good guy to talk to about this stuff.

 

If you're more of a Lowrance guy, they network with Motor Guide.  I'm not well-read on how those units interface with eachother.
