i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link Micro Remotes

i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link give you full command of your trolling motor. But when you want simplified, compact control, grab the new waterproof Bluetooth Micro Remote accessory for quick command of Spot-Lock, speed, steering and Advanced AutoPilot. i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link systems can learn multiple remotes for increased flexibility. The Micro Remote is available for Legacy and Bluetooth i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link.


Determining the Version of your Micro Remote

The Legacy and Bluetooth i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link Micro remotes look identical. The best way to tell the difference is to look for the Bluetooth symbol on the remote back above the battery door. The Legacy i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link Micro Remote will not have the Bluetooth symbol. You can also check the FCC ID and the IC. The Legacy remote will not work with Bluetooth i-Pilot or Bluetooth i-Pilot Link and the Bluetooth remote will not work with Legacy i-Pilot or Legacy i-Pilot Link.

  • Legacy Micro Remote IC and FCC ID
    IC: 4397A-IPMIC
  • Bluetooth Micro Remote IC and FCC ID
    IC: 5123A-BGTBLE121LR

Learning/Pairing the Micro Remote to your Controller

  1. Power up the trolling motor.
  2. Locate the Pair Button at the top of the Control Head.
  3. Push and hold the Pair Button down. A consistent tone will be emitted from the Control Head.
  4. While holding the Pair Button on the Control Head, push and hold the High Speed Bypass and AutoPilot keys on the remote simultaneously.
  5. Once successfully paired, 3 longer beeps will be emitted from the Control Head and the remote will be paired.

Changing the Battery in the Micro Remote


  1. With the remote upside down, use a large coin to rotate the Battery Cover counterclockwise until either of the Unlock Icons align with the Arrow.
  2. Remove the Battery Cover and old battery and replace with a new CR2450 coin cell battery. Note the proper polarity of the battery.
  3. Ensure the rubber O-ring is properly seated in the underside of the Battery Cover. Replace battery cover by aligning either of the Unlock icons with the arrow, and pressing the cover down.
  4. Rotate the Battery Cover clockwise using the large coin until the Lock Icon aligns with the Arrow.

Range of the Remote

The range of the i-Pilot and i-Pilot Link Micro Remotes is 30 feet. The range of the remote will be greatly reduced if it is used near or mounted to any metal object including aluminum or steel. It is also recommended that the front end of the remote not be obstructed during use.
