Using Spot Lock and Spot Lock Jog with Advanced GPS Navigation (2023-present)


Spot-Lock uses a single point of reference that is recorded when the Spot-Lock button is pressed. The reference point is a set of GPS coordinates that are captured at the location of the motor at the moment the button is pressed. This point is recorded and can be saved into one of the Spot-Lock memory locations. Spot-Lock works by recognizing the GPS coordinates and will automatically navigate the boat to keep it at the Spot-Lock location. If the Advanced GPS Navigation system sees the motor is not positioned at the Spot-Lock location, it will control motor speed and direction in an attempt to keep the motor on the Spot-Lock location.
