don't buy this product Worst buy I have ever made. Too many moving parts to break. Broke the shaft within the first three weeks of owning the product on a stump at powerlevel #5 (#10 is max) on the foot control. Took another three weeks to get the replacement shaft. Shortly thereafter the effortless stow and deploy fell apart in stages. After 18 mos of owning it and three "indestructable" shafts later (and out of warranty) I had to start mickeymousing the stow and deploy system because I got sick of waiting for parts leaving my boat not on the water. Can't afford another, so I am stuck with this piece of garbage!!!! Steering is slow, especially at the end of a tournament and doesn't have enough power to cut through the Florida grass. Another thing is your cant mount a trolling motor transducer. May 22, 2012
Good trolling motor This is a great way to cover alot of area to find the fish! It is also great for when you find them in shallow water. I have an 18.5' boat and it moves it along very nicely. Decent battery life if you don't run full speed alot. Drawback is that in mine the circuit board went out after about 8 months. Though it was under warranty. Thats why it got 4 stars.

Great idea poor implementation for fishing I installed a Minn Kota 70 ft-lb 24 volt motor on my C-skiff and I want to make a few remarks about it. First the good: 1. This trolling motor generates a lot of power and basically pulls my skiff through all but the thickest grass making it easy for me to get into areas I didn't like to venture in a bass boat. 2. Installation and set-up were easy. Now the bad (again IMHO) 1. The hand control that comes with the trolling motor works but it's easy to misplace and the idea of attaching it to a fishing rod must have been conceived by some one who never fishes. I simply can't think of any time (saltwater or freshwater) that I use one rod. 2. The idea of remote control from anywhere on the boat is good but it is difficult to tell where the motor is pointed. 3. The foot control (I'm using the corded model) helps a lot but I'm already having problems with mine (the power switch is getting inconsistent -- it seems only one side of it is working now to turn the motor on) and I've only had it since Feb. 4. The electronic steering is way to fast to be practical. I have had multiple times where I have a fish on and I accidently hit the foot pedal causing the boat to go way off course. This was really a pain when I was fighting a big wind to stay off the rocks and catching fish. A little to much pressure of the foot and suddenly the boat is traveling 180 degrees in the wrong direction! Even when your not fighting a fish steering a staight course with the foot pedal is difficult for my size 12 feet! 5. The Deploy-Assist Lever that is designed to take the effort out of deploying the motor doesn't. At best the deployment of this motor (putting it down) is clumsy and bringing it up is even worse. (Next trolling motor I want my hand cord deployment back!) 6. The motor retention latch has failed multiple times, both on the water and off the water. Last time it failed on the water at about 35 mph -- when the motor hit the water the force of the boat ripped off my transducer. Over all I really like Minn Kota's product line but I think they need to improve the steering and deployment system on the SP. I noticed the freshwater model looks exactly the same (except color) but I assume doesn't have the same corrosion protection. I just got a Big-Foot hand control from BassPro that I think is going to solve the steering problem, but I can't help but feel that I paid a lot of extra money for an electronic steering system that doesn't suit my style of fishing.

Riptide Woes I love the concept of the Riptide Autopilot, remote. Like a previous review, I had problems. Deployment/retrieval (I am 6'3" 250 lbs, former football player) Reliability. On my third remote. On my third autopilot module. On my second metal frame and it also has rusted out, another on order (I rinse the motor daily). The beeper has been replaced along with a lot of other stuff. The latch failed at speed and the shaft broke, prop broke and did damage to my expensive craft. The motor itself is rusting where the shaft enters and where it stows. Look like ----. It has been in the shop at least 6 times, but who is counting. The good part. It is still under warranty, this all has happened 18 months into it. The shaft was replaced free of charge, but not the prop or the damage to my boat when the latch failed. Everyone I know has had this happen, such that they use bungees to secure it. So this is a love hate relationship. Love it when its on the boat working, hate it when I have to drive 100 miles to the shop, pick up when the parts finally get in. July 16, 2010

I will need to remove the motor each time to stow the boat. Also, is the GPS version worth the extra?

A: 
Get the quick release mounting bracket. You take the motor off and store it in a secured location when not in use.

The main thing on the installation is. Keep the bracket level. Simple enough to do.

A: 
No you need I-pilot for spot lock. Auto Pilot will go in a straight line based on compass setting. Your boat can get blown off course with Auto-pilot. With the I-pilot comes advanced auto pilot which will not allow you to be blown off course by wind. As soon as you set the direction a serious of GPS spots are recorded along the direction and your boat will travel to those spots.

Well the deploy system is different and the speeds are different. Also one comes with the north button which holds the trolling motor on a certain path. I have used both and both are great trolling motors.
