CONTROLS
GENERAL OPERATION
GENERAL OPERATION
Using the CoPilot with the corded foot pedal
The MINNKOTA AutoPilot uses a magnetic compass and a microprocessor chip to keep the trolling motor pointed in the direction
you want to go. Each time the wind or water current moves the boat off course, the AutoPilot senses the change and steers
itself back to the original heading. The AutoPilot direction is set every time a steering change is made. To change direction,
steer until the control head points to the desired course. The AutoPilot will pull the bow of the boat around and correct automatically until the boat is moving in the direction you chose.
1. This unit has an automatic steering shutdown for safety. In conditions where an obstruction prevents the trolling motor from
turning, or in extremely windy conditions, the automatic steering may stop. Any steering input on the foot pedal will reset the
system to normal.
2. When the AutoPilot is on and the trolling motor is pulled out of the water to the stow position, the steering motor will continue to
run until the motor is stowed properly. Once the motor is stowed properly, AutoPilot will turn off and the system ready indicator
will go off.
3 This unit uses a magnetic compass to detect direction of travel. The compass can be adversely affected by magnets or large,
ferrous metal objects near ( within 12” of ) the trolling motor control head.
4. After steering to a new direction, there is a short delay before the direction is locked in to allow the compass to stabilize.
5. Obstructions on the propeller may cause excessive vibration of the motor head. This vibration can cause the compass to wander and erratic steering to occur. Clear the obstruction to return the motor to normal operation.
6. When broad speed changes are made, the motor heading may change slightly. This is normal.

MIISC. INFORMATION
BATTERY INFORMATION
The motor will operate with any deep cycle marine 12 volt battery
[24 volts require two and 36 volts requires three]. For best results, use a deep cycle MinnKota marine battery with at least an
115 ampere hour rating. The actual ampere draw is subject to your particular environmental conditions and operation requirements.
Maintain battery at full charge. Proper care will significantly improve the battery life. Failure to recharge lead-acid batteries (within 12-24 hours) is the leading cause of premature battery failure. For best results, use a variable rate MinnKota charger.
If you are using a crank battery to start a gasoline outboard, we recommend that you use a separate deep cycle marine battery
for your trolling motor.
Advice regarding batteries:
Never connect the (+) and the (–) terminals of the battery together. Take care that no metal object can fall onto the
battery and short the terminals. This would immediately lead to a short and utmost fire danger. Recommendation: Use
battery boxes and covered battery terminal clamps like Minn Kota accessory #MK-BC-1.
The motor is equipped with a battery gauge. This LED gauge provides an accurate display of the remaining charge in the battery. The gauge is only accurate when the motor is off. The gauge reads as:
the speed not changing and no beep will be heard. See the Audio Mode section for more information.
Push Button Battery Gauge
help prevent unintentional activation of the propeller if the prop on /off remote button is inadvertently pressed or bumped while in storage.
CIRCUIT BREAKER
Boat Rigging and Motor Installation:
An over-current protection device (circuit breaker or fuse) must be used with this motor. Coast Guard requirements dictate that each ungrounded current-carrying conductor must be protected by a manually reset, trip-free circuit breaker or fuse. The
type (voltage and current rating) of the fuse or circuit breaker must be sized accordingly to the trolling motor used. The following
breaker sizes are recommended guidelines:
Maximum thrust Voltage / Recommended circuit breaker rating
30# to 45# 12V 50A @ 12VDC
50# to 55# 12V 60A @ 12VDC
65# to 70# 24V 50A @ 24VDC
80# 24V 60A @ 24VDC
101# 36V 50A @ 36VDC
E-Drive 48V 40A @ 48VDC
The appropriate wire size needed to connect your trolling motor to the trolling motor batteries varies depending on the length of
cable needed and voltage of the motor. For additional information, please consult appropriate ABYC (American Boat and Yacht
Council) and Coast Guard requirements.
