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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
