Minn Kota® Unveils Enhanced

i-Pilot® and i-Pilot® Link™

Racine, WI (July 18, 2016): Minn Kota® changed fishing permanently with the introduction of the original GPS-based trolling system. Anywhere there is water, anglers can use i-Pilot® or i-Pilot® Link™ systems for easier boat control and positioning, so they can focus their attention on bait presentation and catching fish.

At this year’s ICAST, Minn Kota unveils innovative enhancements to i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link systems, including all-new remotes and the most accurate Spot-Lock ever, making them even more powerful and versatile.
