Minnkota Copilot

4 posts in this topic

I just bought a powerdrive from a gentleman, its only a little over a year old and it was outfitted with a copilot before I purchased it. I want to make it a copilot again. Does anyone know what I need to purchase to make it into a copilot again.

1.)Do I need to get the system, or will the copilot remote work.

2.)Also the copilot remote says its for the pd/v2 will it matter?

3.) How about the wireless pedel, will that work and has anyone had any experience with it.

Thanks gentlemen/ladies I appreciate the responses.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

If the guy you bought it from left the co-pilot attachment on it you just nee the remote. One side of the motor will be a little bulkier and will say Co-Pilot in big yellow letters. If it doesn't you need to buy the whole kit. I think they run around $149 but I got mine for $100 off ebay. Never heard of the wirless pedal so can't give any advice there. I like the little remote mounted to my rod or wrist.

1. The CoPilot consists of a transmitter and a receiver. If the receiver is on the motor, then all you need to do is purchase a transmitter (FOB or wireless pedal) and initialize the reciever to the new transmitter.

2. If the motor is over a year old then it is not a V2. The receivers are different for the V2 and older PowerDrives, but the transmitters are the same. (Same software, but the plug from the receiver to the main board is different.)

3. Wireless pedal and FOB are interchangeable. Wireless pedal is less popular.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
