Minn Kota CoPilot Wireless Remote System for PowerDrive
I love this thing, I love the uncluttered front deck. No wires or cables to get in the way to trip over or snag tackle. I put my control unit on a
key ring and attached that to a neck lanyard. Don't have to worry about
loosing it overboard or misplacing it. It's always at the ready and easy
to find and use without looking. I was thinking that a remote foot unit
would be great, but now that I've use the lanyard for a season, I see
no need for it.

Greatest thing since sliced bread. Gives me a change to fish from the back of the boat, (keeps Momma happy). The rod mounts are great and easy to access. Very easy to use, very precise controls. Can't wait to hit the water again.

Best Buy EVER
What a GREAT investment. No more fighting the trolling motor. Fish alot of rivers with alot of wind / current flow... Fighting the current with the fish on!!! not possible with the foot control. its never where you need it at the time (foot pedal). with the remote control it's always where you need it at all times. No tripping over the cord, No lure hook in the cord, and More persice turning and speed control. Installs in 2 min. (literally). WELL WORTH IT!!!!! If you have the power drive YOU NEED THIS. Greatest purchase ever...MAKES A BAD DAY FISHING A GOOD DAY FISHING!!!! I think its makes your batteries last alot longer also! And hook up foot control while using the remote at the same time is a nice feture also. Good idea Min- Kota.

Great replacement unit
My fishing buddy lost the original remote for my Co-Pilot unit. The replacement installed easily, worked flawlessly and madde for easy control of my trolling motor right from my fishing rod. My only complaint was that the wrist strap which came with the original unit was not included with the replacement and I did not see where it was offered as an additional option. My buddy lost the whole unit with its wrist mount so I will have to see if I can get another.
