    Default What add-on?

    There is a statement made in Motorguide descriptions of their Xi 5 and 3 trolling motors that says, " right from the start you will be controlling your trolling motor from anywhere in the boat, no expensive add-on required. What does Minnkota require that Motorguide doesn't?
    Thanks

    They are talking about their hand remote and I think they have a remote foot pedal. Minkota has the same thing. Just a marketing statement.

    I was reading today about some compass accessory that has to be bought to enable the MK Powerdrive tm with Bluetooth to function in the jog mode. Maybe I just don't understand, but it seemed like that accessory as standard on upscale models, but not the Powerdrive. It cost >$150. Could that be what MG is alluding to?

    I don’t think so. My 3yr old Xi5 jogs just fine and has from day one.

    kdk, you don't think what? MK says that to make a Bluetooth equipped Powerdrive jog you have to install the compass. MG doesn't have that accessory, and I understand that jog works fine on the MG. Please explain what you mean.
    Thanks

    Sorry bout that. MG/Xi5 doesn’t require any additional add ons. No sure about MK.
