Video TranscriptHi I’m Rick Murphy one of Minn Kota’s many pro-staff and I want to tell you the i-Pilot has really changed my life and I felt compelled to tell you how I use that i-Pilot every day in guiding.
Now the first thing I do is I often shut down a couple of hundred yards short of where I want to fish so that I don’t wake the shoreline. And after I get to where I want to fish, the first thing I do is I deploy the trolling motor. The i-Pilot this is where it really takes off for me. Now what I’m going to simply do is I’m going to pick a direction where I want this motor to go and I’m going to choose from one of the 20 speeds that it offers. Once I have established the speed, then I want to go up and fish that creek right there. I’m going to go ahead and put it on auto-pilot. Now what it does for me is it allows me to go with very little adjustments while I get my rods ready. Then I can also get my rods ready and explain to my customers exactly what we’re going to be doing here. If I want to adjust the speed and slow down it’s real easy.
Once I arrive at my fishing spot the cool part is now I can push spot lock. And by pushing the spot lock it’s going to actually stop and hold me right here. That’s the beauty of the i-Pilot, it will hold me within 5 feet. Watch it turning around, it’s coasting up here, it will stop, turn around and hold me exactly where I want to be. Now I don’t have to worry about any anchors or even putting a push poll. When you talk about green this is what really makes this really awesome.
So I hope some of these tips have helped you become more efficient when running the Minn Kota i-Pilot because these little tips really work for me on a daily basis. Good luck and tight lines and good fishing. read less

On your Humminbird select a heading with your cursor, then choose advanced autopilot. Your Hummingbird will tell your Minn Kota right where to go or you can steer the motor ahead in the direction you want to travel and push the advance autopilot button on the i-Pilot link remote. Either way you’ll stay on your heading accurately and automatically. All thanks to the GPS precision of i-Pilot Link. read less
