    Was hoping they had a software release that improved spot lock. Oh well, I will keep dreaming (smile).

    I have the new Ulterra it has it's own GPS antenna. I did have a First Generation terrova and the Ulterras spot lock is fantastic. I would agree with you on the older units. I bought a Helix G3N CHO for the bow to work with the T/M. But I have not been able to get out to try it out.

    I have the latest version of the Ulterra. Less than 2 years old. I also have the Helix 10 Mega everything Gen 2 along with the Garmin 8610axv with LiveScope. I have had three new heads, one of which was installed by an authorized Minn Kota dealer (two hours way), multiple calls to tech support (they are awesome), a dozen different configurations recommended by tech support and it still varies from 5 to 10 feet. I also have the As Gps Hs external GPS. Best Minn Kota came up with was my center console 18 foot FreedomBoat was too light on the bow. And, yes, boat scale was the first thing we worked on. I am just waiting on whoever makes the best spot lock for my next purchase. Thanks for commenting, though.

    my Ulterra is very good at keeping me in the same spot. Maybe I shoulda waited for the new-improved transducer, would love SI. Wonder how much an upgrade would cost?

    I have the upper end transducer from Humminbird that came with the Helix mounted on the Ulterra so I have Mega imaging SI, DI, etc. along with all nav functions. The sonar that came internally with the Minn Kota was not worth anything to me so I took it off and pitched it.

    Did you have to buy or make a special mount? With the ulterra I believe 1 would be required

    Cornfieldcrappiegear.com has a cable saver that works like a charm. I am extremely happy with it.

    Hey, did not mean this to turn to HB bashing. Other than spot lock I think it is the best trolling motor on the market and I am glad they continue to roll out new models.
