Part of the One-Boat Network
Out of the box, Minn Kota motors come standard with everything you need to connect to select Humminbird fish finders, unlocking more advanced navigation features without needing to remember additional adapters or complicated set-up procedures.
The most comfortable, responsive steering available. Ultrex's foot pedal is built for all-day ease, with precision control and instant responsiveness.
When you take your foot off Ultrex's foot pedal, the motor head remains pointed in the direction you left it. No recoil or readjustment, just easier steering every day.
- Advanced GPS Trolling System The One-Boat Network gives you unprecedented control over your boat by linking your trolling motor to your Humminbird® fish finder. Control your trolling motor from the included remote or a connected Humminbird. You can set Spot-Locks, record paths, follow depth contours, automatically navigate to your favorite spots, control speed and steering, and more.
Spot-Lock with Jog
Spot-Lock will hold you in place with unparalleled GPS accuracy. Spot-Lock gives you the power to stay right on top of any productive fishing spot, without touching your trolling motor. With the built-in heading sensor, you can use Jog to move your Spot-Lock location five feet in any direction.
Automatically engages speed and course control simultaneously, meaning anglers no longer need to depend on drift socks, kicker motors, or manual operation to control speed over water – even in the heaviest wind and current.
Ultrex's patented Lift-Assist Design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half. Features a stainless steel, nitrogen gas-charged spring.
Heel-Toe / Cable Foot Pedal
It's the only foot pedal with Power Steering for all-day comfort and instant responsiveness — plus a button to activate Spot-Lock electronic anchor.
Provides up to 5 times longer run time on a single battery charge. These variable speed trolling motors let you dial in your exact speed, and they deliver only as much power as you need, helping to conserve your battery for a full day of fishing.
Indestructible Composite Shaft — Guaranteed for Life
At the core of your Minn Kota trolling motor is an indestructible composite shaft. It's a Minn Kota exclusive, and we guarantee it for life.
Mobile App Compatibility
Control your motor directly from your Apple® or Android™ device with the One-Boat Network app. You get quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock and AutoPilot — plus the ability to update software.
The Ultrex motors have a built-in transducer. The transducers available are the Built-in Dual Spectrum Chirp (DSC), and MEGA Side Imaging (MSI). To connect your transducer to a fish finder, you may need an Adapter Cable. The compatibility charts for the transducers listed at the bottom of this page will help you determine if your fish finder is compatible and if you need an adapter cable.
Built-In MEGA Down Imaging
With a transducer built right into the motor, you get crystal clear Humminbird® MEGA Down Imaging and a clean protected look.
Built-In Dual Spectrum Chirp Sonar
Keeps your transducer and wiring completely concealed and protected running everything through the trolling motor's shaft. By covering a wide range of frequencies, Humminbird's CHIRP produces more accurate, more detailed returns of fish, structure and the bottom than traditional sonar.
