Minn Kota Freshwater PD/V2 to BT iPilot Upgrade Kit

This kit includes everything needed to upgrade all freshwater Minn Kota PD/V2 trolling motor models to the newest BT iPilot system made by Minn Kota.  The control box assembly is included in this kit and will need to be replaced to allow the new iPilot Head Controller to fit.  Please be aware that after installing the iPilot system, you will no longer have use of the foot pedal. 

Fits the following freshwater Minn Kota trolling motor models:

  • Minn Kota PowerDrive V2 and PD/V2 models from 2007 - 2016


  • i-Pilot® GPS Trolling System: The most-trusted GPS system in fishing. i-Pilot® uses GPS to control your trolling motor with incredible features that keep you on the fish. Set Spot-Locks, record paths, control speed and steering, and more. i-Pilot makes boat positioning and control automatic, and you can take command from its easy-to-read large LCD screen.
  • Spot-Lock: Just press a button, and Spot-Lock will hold you in place with unparalleled GPS accuracy. Available on i-Pilot GPS systems, Spot-Lock gives you the power to stay right on top of any productive fishing spot automatically, without touching your trolling motor. Spot-Lock with jog can be accomplished by adding a heading sensor (sold separately, 1866680). You can use Jog to move your Spot-Lock location five feet in any direction. Activate Spot-Lock from the i-Pilot remote.
  • AutoPilot™: Automatically navigate your boat in any direction you choose. Just point the head of your trolling motor in the direction you want to travel, activate AutoPilot™, and your trolling motor will keep you on that heading automatically, even correcting for wind, waves and current.
  • Mobile App Compatibility: Control i-Pilot directly from your Apple® or Android™ device with our mobile app. You get quick command of speed, steering, Spot-Lock and Advanced AutoPilot — plus the ability to update i-Pilot software.

Working great

Patrick Dann (Sacramento, US)
Love the trolling motor

Took boat out and trolling motor worked very well being able to control it with the handheld instead of the foot switch, so much easier

Charles Samuels (Burlington Junction, US)
easy install

everything needed was there and it was a very easy install

Brett Moravitz (Rice Lake, US)
Performs Awesome & Northland Marine Support is Top-notch!

Called Northland to make sure I was getting the right kit. After a short conversation they set me up up with what I needed for my order and I had it at my door in less than a week. Upon installing, I had a little trouble getting it to pair with the remote, so I tried calling Minn Kota tech support first, waited 25 minutes to get picked up and then the tech help was essentially worthless. I then called the guys at Northland Marine (where I purchased it) and they were awesome once again, this time at helping me troubleshoot and solve the issue. The upgrade kit works very well and I love using it! Highly recommend Northland Marine for your next purchase!

Spot lock upgrade

Good service

AUSTIN NEICE (Garden City, US)
Top Notch service!

I usually don't leave reviews but I am beyond happy with this company, very easy website to use. Had to get a new head controller for my powerdrive v2 since my old one finally took a dump on me. Shipping was fast received in about 3 days using USPS priority. Highly recommend these guys

Awesome product and service

First and foremost, Northland Marine was very responsive to questions on this product through their customer service email. #1 reason I ordered through them. Second, the order shipped same day and was on my doorstep just a few days later. Last, having a 2016 Powerdrive V2, the kit was super simple to install and works great. Looking forward to having functions like Spot Lock and recording tracks for trolling runs moving forward.

Mini Kota Power dive 2 to I pilot mod.

The paper instructions included with the kit were out of date and the figures showing the various parts and connections were difficult to view. The online instructions included color figures that could be sized for easier viewing.
The kit went together pretty well and the performance meets my expectations.
