      I always worried about it locking up and being stuck with it down 10 miles from the ramp

Hand held remote is nice, GPS, autopilot, spot lock, Higher Thrust is big must run on less power levels saves batteries. Got mine just before lift assist and Ulterra had to many bugs. Lowrance graphs are best bet for Minnkota trolling motors. One Option is 2D built in sonar just get small cable to plug into graph for US2 on bow. If run certain Hummingbirds or Garmin go Mega DI image they link direct, Lowrance will not. I run structure scan 3d and active scan on back of boat two graph's on dash one graph on bow can switch between two transducer in settings on Lowrance graph, I am not into the fancy live scope extra can run up front clamped to trolling motor or separate pole with two graphs up front. Garmin Force is good and bad I have friends that run it along with Lowrance ghost. Seems like need damn degree to run all this shit now days and fat check book for sure. Can link two graphs one on bow and one on dash also or if using NMEA Network or wireless setup. Can also setup tracks on birds and Garmin's with front trolling motor to follow the course from before. Ulterra with I-pilot link is also for birds and Garmin's, not Lowrance. Google is your friend to tell difference so much they all do and don't depends on whole setup.

      Garmin doesn’t talk with minn kota MDI transducer that I’m aware of. Only US2 sonar.

      Just make sure you get foot control. The handheld remote is nice addition to have also. Buddy has the Ultera and his model does not and is not adaptable to foot control and he hates it.

      The xi5 still doesn’t have a display? Or at least big bright LEDs somewhere to tell you on/off/lock/etc???

      That’s BS. (I have one that’s 4 years old and I hate no display. In wind you can’t hear #### to tell you what’s going on.

      I have a Terrova 80/US2-60" w I Pilot, two remotes (old and new style), foot control, and quick release mount.

      I bought an XI-5 to replace it four years back.

      Thinking of selling it - What's it worth?

      I have Ulterras on both my rigs. I wouldn't run them if I tournament fished as they like to be treated well. I have broke one in waves, they don't work well below freezing and they hate dirt/dust. That said, I know their quirks so I put up with it so I can hit the button and move whenever I want without running up and down my boat in wind and waves.

      Seem to see them typically on classifieds for ~1000, probably reasonably expect 8-900.

      I just put my new Terrova on tonight. The only cable coming off it is the I-pilot link (I think). How do I hook up an older Lowrance?

      Lmao....1st thought that went through my mind. But my buddy said they're hard to find right now. Even that one cable coming off doesn't look like a ducer cord. So will the new bird connect to ducer wirelessly?

      slightly off topic, but Bird should really simplify there product lineup. They have too many models within a model. I understand the price point advantage to it, but when there is a shortage of available options, simplifying things wouldn’t be a bad idea.

      It should be pretty straight forward. You need a lowrance cable for your US2 minn kota sonar. Look it up on the internet or talk to someone at scheels.
