Minn Kota Saltwater RT/SP to BT iPilot Upgrade Kit

This kit includes everything needed to upgrade all saltwater Minn Kota RT/SP 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.

Fits the following saltwater Minn Kota trolling motor models:

  • Minn Kota RT/SP and Riptide Saltwater PowerDrive 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.

I was upgrading my Minn Kota Riptide when I
contacted Northland Marine. The customer service, product and shipping were outstanding. I was so happy with Northland Marine I decided to buy another motor for my other boat. Another outstanding delivery of the product in 2 days!

Works perfectly.

Great upgrade for a low price

Spent more time steering motor than fishing and wanted options this kit or a new motor gave. Tides and wind always causing the need for correcting position. Not willing to spend the cash for whole new motor I chose the upgrade. Glad I did more time now with rod in my hands and less on the remote. Easy install and I would do this again. I recommend all buddies to Northland for parts.


Great service and fast postage to Australia. Thank you.

He was able to answer all my questions to fit me with the best product with out selling me things I didn't need. shipping was fast and installation was a breeze. I should be in good shape for a while but if I need anything I will be coming back.
