If your Bluetooth i-Pilot Remote shows "Motor Not Found" the i-Pilot remote is not able to communicate with the i-Pilot Controller built into the trolling motor.
Click the button below for the Bluetooth i-Pilot® and i-Pilot Link Systems Troubleshooting Guide.
- Verify the i-Pilot Controller has power.
- For PowerDrive Motors press the “Push-to-Test” battery meter to verify voltage to the motor and check the connection to the foot pedal plug is secure.
- For all other motors verify the motor is turned on, a system ready or power light will be illuminated (on the base of the motor on all Terrova/Ulterra Models, on the foot pedal on Ultrex).
- Re-pair/re-learn the remote to the Controller.
- Turn the system OFF and then back ON (for PowerDrive models, disconnect then reconnect power).
