Identifying the Cables Coming from your Motor

Your trolling motor may have Built-In MEGA Imaging or Universal Sonar 2, and may include i-Pilot Link. These features require cables to be connected to a fishfinder. The cables, if present, exit the control head from the bottom. To identify the cables present, refer to the diagrams below that detail what the Built-In MEGA Imaging, Universal Sonar and i-Pilot Link cable connectors look like.
