i-PILOT

Less navigating means more fishing. That’s what the fishing world learned when we introduced i-Pilot – and it hasn’t been the same since. i-Pilot uses GPS to lock onto fishing spots, record and retrace paths, command speed and steering, and more – al from a compact, wireless remote with an LCD screen. i-Pilot takes you anywhere you want to go, automatically.
