Legacy AutoPilot Basics

Why buy a Minn Kota trolling motor with the AutoPilot feature?

  • Minn Kota’s patented AutoPilot system (available on Legacy Terrova (mfg. 2006-2016) and Legacy PowerDrive V2 (mfg. 2007-2016) trolling motors, i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link systems) keeps you headed in the right direction by intelligently and automatically steering your boat.
  • AutoPilot utilizes a patented, state-of-the-art compass system that locks onto a particular heading, and automatically and continuously makes adjustments to keep your boat moving in that direction.
  • AutoPilot is included as a feature within all i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link systems as well.
    • AutoPilot allows anglers to concentrate on fishing, not on steering or maneuvering the boat.
    • AutoPilot eliminates 3/4 of the normal steering time that is required when using traditional, non auto-navigation motors.

Upgrading from AutoPilot to i-Pilot

You can upgrade your Legacy Terrova (mfg. 2006-2016) or Legacy PowerDrive V2 (mfg. 2007-2016) trolling motor to i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link, however, the AutoPilot will need to be uninstalled from your trolling motor before you install it. i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link include all of the functionality of AutoPilot.

Adding AutoPilot

Unfortunately, we do not offer the AutoPilot as a standalone accessory. However, AutoPilot is included as a feature with i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link.
