Riptide ST55/i-Pilot Link
Saltwater Bow-Mount w/Integrated GPS Trolling System
We put Riptide® ST to the test, because we know you will. After thousands of hours of research and field testing, we made it quiet enough to give you the drop on fish and tough enough to withstand the most extreme conditions. We know saltwater anglers never turn down a challenge. As it turns out, neither do we.
Digital Maximizer™ controls and optimizes power to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. You'll stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge.
Digital AutoPilot (select models)
Digitally controlled AutoPilot™ locks onto any heading you choose and delivers you there. Infinitely variable steering adjustments provide smoother course corrections and tighter heading accuracy against wind, waves and current. Included on select models. Also available as an add-on accessory.
Weedless Wedge 2 Prop
Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Weedless Wedge™ 2 features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
Indestructible Composite Shaft - Guaranteed For Life!
Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, kink or corrode. That's why we're confident enough to make it the only trolling motor shaft that's guaranteed for life.
Cool, Quiet Power
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota®. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they'll never hear you coming.
Integrated GPS Trolling System
i-Pilot Link Wireless Remote
i-Pilot Link's wireless remote features a full-color LCD screen to display your current function, user menus, GPS signal strength, prop status and battery state. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the remote is waterproof and it floats. The i-Pilot Link system can learn multiple remotes for added flexibility.
i-Pilot® Link enables your Minn Kota® trolling motor and Humminbird® fishfinder to talk to each other. i-Pilot Link delivers automatic boat control and the power to find, store and revisit your most productive fishing spots and tracks. And you can take command of it all from either the wireless remote or the Humminbird fishfinder. It's less time positioning your boat. More time catching fish. Now you're talking.
It's All Coming Together
Together, Minn Kota & Humminbird give you the power of automatic boat control and the ability to create, store and revisit productive spots and paths - all while retaining the original i-Pilot functions. Add a LakeMaster digital GPS map into your Humminbird and you can follow any depth contour you choose, automatically, or cast to it from a set distance with Contour Offset. All with unparalleled GPS accuracy.
It's the missing link to better fishing.
Add additional remotes to your i-Pilot Link integrated system for increased versatility. i-Pilot Link's wireless remote features a full-color LCD screen to display your current function, user menus, GPS signal strength, prop status and battery state. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the remote is waterproof and it floats.
The replacement remote is compatible with all i-Pilot Link systems
Follow The Contour
If you're fishing at a certain depth, i-Pilot Link can keep you on it automatically. With a LakeMaster SD card in your Humminbird, i-Pilot Link will follow any contour you choose - in either direction - for as long as you want.
*Follow The Contour feature available only on i-Pilot Link enabled LakeMaster Digital GPS Maps.
You can also stay a set distance from a depth contour or the shoreline by activating Contour Offset. Set your boat a certain distance from either a selected depth contour or the shoreline, and cast to it all day long.
Follow any LakeMaster® depth contour you choose, automatically, or cast to it from a set distance with Contour Offset.
Spot-Lock for i-Pilot Link
Spot-Lock helps keep you within 5 feet of a fishing spot, like an electronic anchor. When your boat begins to drift more than 5 feet from your selected fishing spot, i-Pilot Link will take you back automatically.
Go To Spot-Lock...Use Go To Spot-Lock to return to your spot, and lock back into it upon arrival.
Go To Waypoint...Return to a stored waypoint with Go To Waypoint. It automatically takes you to your select waypoint at any speed you choose, and upon arrival, you can go into Spot-Lock, AutoPilot™ or shut off the prop.
Never lose another successful trolling path. iTracks are paths in the water (up to 2 miles long) that you can store and retrace whenever you want.
Go To iTrack...Return to your stored tracks with Go To iTrack. It automatically takes you to the closest waypoint of your selected track, and lets you retrace the path in either direction.
Advanced AutoPilot for i-Pilot Link
Stay on any heading you choose with unparalleled GPS accuracy while compensating for wind, waves, current and side drift. Just set a heading by using your Humminbird cursor or pointing the motor head in the direction you want to travel. Then push a button and let i-Pilot Link keep you on that heading.
CoPilot for i-Pilot Link
Take wireless command of speed, steering and on/off from anywhere on the boat with the CoPilot functions on your i-Pilot Link remote.
Cruise Control for i-Pilot Link
Entice fish with perfect bait presentation by using Cruise Control. Lock in your actual on-the-water speed and adjust it in .1 mile-per-hour increments.
