minnkota autopilot

Question

I have a Minnkota autopilot trolling motor that, when in autopilot, only turns one way. The foot control turns both ways and the motor is fully functional otherwise. Has anyone else had a similiar problem? If so what was the defective part?

I just posted a reply to another thread "minnkota 65 AP".

Most likely your compass board is bad.

(it could also be your foot control but they've had more problems with compass boards that also cause this.)

I'm on my 5th compass board. Each time it exibits different characteristics of being faulty. The first time it just started turning every direction on its own but it worked fine when not using the auto pilot feature. The next one it would only turn left and not right. the next one would not turn either left or right, Both times the foot pedal tested ok and the compass board faulty. This went on and on.

From what Minnkota told me, all controls (turning etc.) go through the compass board even if not using the auto pilot feature. This is poor design as far as I'm concerned.

Better get on it while you still have warranty. Hopefully you do.

Before we come to the conclusion somethings wrong with the unit lets go over a few things.
Is the battery charged.
Is the shaft plumb when lowered into position.
Are the connections clean.
Dose it only act up when you have the speed set high.

If the motor turn both directions and the speed control work with the foot control I would say it's the compass board. If its under warranty bring it to a service center, you'll need the receipt. If its not under warranty you can take the chance thats its the board buy it and put it in yourself. Or bring the whole works to the shop and pay a little more to have them test it.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.

      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
