Minnkota Copilot

5 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!

You should be able to just buy a remote for about $40 and program it in.It should also have a hook up for a foot pedal.I myself prefer only the remote and i got rid of my foot pedal.I have 2 remotes wich allows 2 people to control the motor wich is great when your taking fish off.

Wishing W. is right. Then dump the foot pedal. The Co-Pilot is the only way to go. First though, check to see that the remote "receiving" part of the system is ON the Minnkota. The previous guy may have taken the whole system off. confused.gif

I am sure he took everything with, so I would need the whole system then right?

Thanks for the great info guys!

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
