  • Deploy-Assist Lever

  • Spot Lock
  • CoPilot™ and Cruise Control

All the great features of the Minn Kota® Riptide® SP Saltwater Trolling Motor combined with a factory-installed Minn Kota® i-Pilot™ Wireless GPS Trolling System. The revolutionary i-Pilot uses GPS technology to store and retrieve locations and paths on the water. Its intuitive features—including CoPilot™ wireless functions—navigate and position your boat for you, improve your bait presentation, and let you focus on fishing.

Riptide® SP features:
CoPilot™ Wireless Remote System -- Now standard with added features. Control speed, steering, and on/off controls from anywhere on the boat.
Deploy-Assist Lever -- Puts you in motion and in pursuit of fish quickly and easily. Depress the lever, the motor deploys, and you’re ready to go. When it’s time to move, it stows easily and securely—ready for action whenever you are.
Advanced Corrosion Protection -- Premium-grade marine alloys are virtually impervious to rust. Metals undergo a rigid multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with a special zinc dichromate armor plating and finished with a TGIC polyester, powder-coat paint.

iPilot™ features:
Record a Track:
Simply push the Record button and fish along your desired course. i-Pilot will store that track to memory—now up to six separate tracks. When
you want to retrace a course, i-Pilot’s Playback functions will automatically guide your boat down the track.
Spot-Lock:
Works like an electronic anchor. Choose up to six separate spots to remember and at the push of a button it will hold you in place. Spot-Lock Recall lets you return to that spot later.
CoPilot™ and Cruise Control:
Select and maintain a consistent speed for optimum bait presentation with cruise control, and use the legendary speed and steering functions
of CoPilot™ to precisely control your boat.
Advanced CoPilot:
Uses GPS to take you exactly to the point you select, not just the bearing you choose. It’s the difference between a compass and a GPS unit. Just point the motor in the direction you want to travel, push a button and let it take you there with GPS accuracy while compensating for wind, waves, current, and drift.

Has a design flaw While the motor itself and GPS features are awesome this motor has a major design flaw. First it is difficult to deploy the motor. You have to really push to get it out every time you use it. Despite this it will self deploy if you hit a wave while underway. Ours was torn completely off the bow leaving only the bracket. It is sitting on the bottom of the bayou. When calling Minn Kota they refused to help repair in any way. They said your supposed to lower the depth collar everytime you stow the motor. They said its in the manual. Well I read the manual but mostly focused on how to work the gps part never dreaming of it self deploying. After searching online I have found that many users have had this issue and are installing RAM mounts, etc to prevent this. So basically if you plan on getting one of these plan on having to raise and lower the depth collar every time you stow the motor to move to another spot. I will be looking at Motor guides next as the cost to repair is as much as a new motor. $1200 for about 4 fishing trips. July 9, 2014
Minn Kota SP70 - iPilot I bought this new trolling motor as a trade up for a broken SP70 without the iPilot. There are some 'cons' to this unit but the 'pros' greatly outweigh them. Pros: The iPilot is wonderful. If you point it in a direction and use the advanced autopilot it accurately stays on track. The record a track feature works great as well. I fish in Galveston Bay and hit many different sites in a single day. Since there are only 6 tracks that it will record I normally record over them regularly. But if you're fishing a particular lake it would be very easy to store your favorite spots/fishing patterns. I have a 22 foot center console and the 70 pushes me around nicely. A lot of torque and can run easily for 6-8 hours of serious trolling on one charge. The remote gets some getting used to but I like technical gadgets so it was fun to learn the functions. Cons: The remote is clunky. I'm used to the copilot remote so this wasn't too hard to get used to. But it's about 5 times bigger and heavier. Fits decently into your hand. Record a track doesn't record the speed, only the track. So you have to adjust. Not that big a deal especially because the wind is normally doing different things depending upon your direction. The 'pause' functionality on the record a track also gets some getting used to. You have to pause to get a tangled hook, then go back to a close position and resume recording. Overall I give it 5 stars for ingenuity, cost and reliability. Also, I highly recommend purchasing the gear guard 3 year warranty. Been worth it on several purchases. April 14, 2014
Bad experience Good news...Bought the Minn Kota i-pilot in March of 2012. Used only a few times in 2012. I thought this was the greatest trolling motor every invented. The spot lock feature alone is worth the price. Bad news...used the motor three times this year and already am having problems. The motor now has a mind of it's own. When pressing the directional buttons on the remote, the motor should turn until you release the button. This works sometimes and sometimes it does not. Same thing with the speed buttons. Sometimes with the directional buttons, it will not stop turning when you release the button. Thought I had a bad remote. Took motor to service center. Repairman and Minn Kota support determined I had a bad remote. Minn Kota gave me another remote (took a month to get it) and I still have the same problem. Now have to dismount motor and take it in again. I would wait awhile to buy one of these until they can figure out the bugs. July 7, 2013

A: 
Hi, thank you for your inquiry. No, the Minn Kota RTA-19 Quick Release Bracket works with Riptide SF, SM, or SE bow-mount trolling motors. Therefore, the one you need and that will fit the Riptide ST or Riptide SP motors would be the model RTA-17, which is SKU number 1117155.

It's got 10 different speeds and definitely worth the money. Buy the 3 year warranty for an additional $199. No questions asked and well worth the peace of mind. I've used my warranty twice on other items. Paid for itself 4 times over.

A: 
Yes and No. If will depend on how you fish. If you only use the trolling motor to get from one spot to another than a 5 speed would be a good option. However, if you want to move slowly for position or trolling than a variable speed will let you find the right amount of control. I hope this helps. Thanks

The horizontal casing you see in the photo mounts onto the bow very securely. I recommend the quick release plate that allows you to pop the motor off with almost no effort. It costs a little extra and is completely worth it.

Details: 
I'm new at fishing and just purchased a pontoon. I'm looking for a trolly motor that will help in difficult places to anchor. I will be fishing both in fresh and salt waters. Any guidance and the best fit will be greatly appreciated as I would like to get this right the first time.

A: 
I would ask a dealer but in theory, there is no reason it would not work. I would think the 36 V might be appropriate. And you will need to ensure you have enough open deck to stow the motor horizontally on deck. You can angle the motor any direction that it will fit.

Staff Answer
A: 
This motor features Spot-Lock. Spot-Lock works like an electronic anchor. You can choose up to six separate spots for i-Pilot to remember, and at the push of a button, it will correct for wind or current to hold you in place. Spot-Lock Recall lets you return to your spot later, from up to a quarter mile away.

You do have other factors you need to consider as well when choosing a trolling motor, and I am providing a link to an article in our OutdoorSite Library. If you choose this motor you will need to make sure you have a mounting location, that you choose a long enough shaft length for you pontoon, and that you have enough pounds of thrust. The article below will explain these factors in detail.
