The new Minn Kota Ultrex 80 trolling motor sets another high water mark for innovation.
Combining the rugged body of the Fortrex with the brilliant functionality of your choice of i-Pilot or i-Pilot Link, the Ultrex delivers the classic precision control of a cable steer motor, but now with all-new Power Steering and the latest in GPS capabilities, such as the ability to “jog” five feet in any direction off a spot lock position and also maintain accuracy to within a few feet. The Ultrex also introduces Steering Lock, or the ability to take your foot off the pedal without losing your exact course heading.
The Ultrex includes a Power Steering-assisted cable foot pedal with Spot Lock and AutoPilot buttons, as well as either an i-Pilot or Link wireless remote. There’s even Bluetooth connectivity for a Minn Kota smartphone app enabling software updates and command of basic remote functions. Historically, the appeal of cable steer motors has been the precise control they give fishermen near shore and around structures. It’s why many bass fishermen have been reluctant to make the switch to more modern electric steer motors like the Terrova, even though they offer the tantalizing i-Pilot. But now Ultrex removes those barriers by offering the exact touch and feel of a cable-steer motor, augmented with Power Steering to alleviate fatigue. You get improved foot control, i-Pilot or Link remote functionality, and rugged durability.
Comes standard with i-Pilot or i Pilot Link (includes handheld remote and Power Steering foot pedal), Lift Assist, US2 Sonar, Digital Maximizer, Stow/Deploy Cable, Composite Shaft, Weedless Wedge 2 Prop, Bluetooth, Smartphone App, and a Two Year Warranty.
The same heel/toe steering you’re used to, made easier. Power Steering reduces steering effort and foot fatigue, making Ultrex the smoothest, most responsive motor you’ve ever driven.
