To put it simply, the i-Pilot Link option puts your Minn Kota trolling motor in connection with your Humminbird fish finder, unlocking quite a palette of new navigational possibilities. The main function of this option is that it allows you to control your trolling motor directly from the head unit of your fish finder, also allowing you to optimize your navigation and your fishing.
For example, via the Follow the Contour function, you can select a certain countour line, for a specific depth, and a specific direction, and set your trolling motor to follow that specific contour line. This way your boat will steer itself while you’re hands free, and you can focus on your fishing, or tackle other activities.
iPilot is a system that focuses on recording tracks, cruise control, co-pilot and autopilot, spot lock and other functions, and the i-Pilot Link option makes them all available directly from your fish finder.
