Ultrex 80/MSI/IP Trolling Motor w/i-Pilot Link & Bluetooth - 24v-80LB - 52"
Minn Kota had a stand out performer with the Fortrex model. Released around 2009, the bomb-proof reputation of this motor quickly spread by word of mouth and before long Minn Kota sold thousands of them. Then Minn Kota came out with the I-pilot technology. This was groundbreaking and quickly became a must have just like A/C is in a pickup truck. Unfortunately, Minn Kota did not offer the Fortrex with I-pilot. They had something else up their sleeve. A brand new motor that will have a familiar look like the Fortrex with a lot of similarities, but adding a bunch of new tech to it including the much loved I-pilot. The result… the Minn Kota Ultrex! The Ultrex quickly picked up where the Fortrex left off and we started seeing this motor as the gold standard on pro’s boats as well as serious recreational anglers. The I-pilot was also greatly improved from the previous version with much more accuracy on the spot-lock feature and a new “jog” feature. The Ultrex combined the best of both worlds as a cable steer with electric assist. This provided instantaneous response to pedal input as well as much less fatigue on your foot. In late 2019 Minn Kota announced new built-in transducer options that included the MDI and MSI for integration with Humminbird graphs. The partnership didn’t end there however, as Minn Kota also had the I-pilot Link that enabled connecting the Ultrex to a compatible Humminbird graph via ethernet and adding autopilot features like following contour lines and automatically heading to waypoints. The vast number of options Minn Kota has with the Ultrex is impressive and ensures there is a version of this trolling motor for anybody.
