Legacy i-Pilot Remote shows all Icons and then Turns off (2007-2016)

If your i-Pilot Remote shows all of the icons for a few seconds and then turns off, the i-Pilot remote is not able to communicate with the i-Pilot Controller built into the trolling motor.


  1. 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 and Ulterra Models).
  2. Re-pair/re-learn the remote to the Controller.
  3. Turn the system OFF and then back ON (for PowerDrive models, disconnect then reconnect power).

To Learn your Remote

  1. Power on your motor
    • Ulterra and Riptide Ulterra- Press the power button on the base of the motor.
    • Terrova and Riptide Terrova- Deploy the motor.
    • PowerDrive and Riptide PowerDrive- Deploy the motor.
  2. On the motor, press and hold the "Learn" button. A consistent tone will be emitted from the Control Head.
  3. While pressing and holding the Learn button on the control head, press any button on the remote.
  4. Once successfully paired, 3 longer beeps will be emitted from the Control Head and the remote will be paired.
