I needed a new trolling motor, and was looking at the standard Powerdrive V2, without I-pilot. As I kept looking, I started thinking about the I-pilot equipped model as well, but wondered if it was worth the extra money. After reading about the I-pilot features, and debating with my wife the pros they provide, I decided to give it a try. Am I ever glad I spent the extra money. The spot lock feature itself is worth the extra coinage. I've only had it out once since installing, so I am still learning the other features, so I cannot comment on them. I believe the record a track will prove its usefulness too. One thing I want to point out - the description states it comes with a foot control. It does not. You get the I-pilot remote, and as far as I know, there is not a compatible foot control for the Powerdrive that has I-pilot installed. I did my research and knew not to expect a foot control, but I just wanted to point it out because the description can be misleading. I my opinion, I'd rather not have the foot control anyway. Not having the foot control frees up a lot of space at the front of my boat, and allows me to wirelessly operate my trolling motor from anywhere on the boat. A big complaint I've read in other reviews is that it can be difficult to deploy and stow the Powerdrive units. I have had no trouble with either. Very easy to deploy and stow, and locks very securely. Bottom line is this - if you're like me and looking for a new trolling motor, but not sure if the I-pilot is worth the extra money, in my opinion it is. I didn't want to spend the coinage on a trolling motor only to end up wondering if I should have spent a little more. As always, iboats processed my order very quickly, and I had my motor the next day.
