Minn Kota Saltwater Legacy RT/ST to BT iPilot Upgrade Kit

This kit includes everything needed to upgrade all saltwater 12 volt Minn Kota Legacy Riptide Saltwater Terrova and RT/ST trolling motor models to the newest BT iPilot system made by Minn Kota.  The control box assembly, control board and control board cover are included in this kit and will all need to be replaced to allow this conversion to work.

Fits the following saltwater Minn Kota trolling motor models:

  • Minn Kota Riptide Saltwater Terrova and RT/ST 55 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 installing the provided heading sensor. 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.
