Calibrating the Trolling Motor

You must calibrate the compass in the trolling motor before you can use the autopilot features. For the best results, you should calibrate the motor on a day with little or no wind on calm water. You can repeat the calibration process if the autopilot features are not performing as expected.

  1. Drive the boat to an open area of calm water and stop moving.

    The boat must be stationary to begin the calibration process.

  2. Make sure the trolling motor is deployed (Deploying the Motor from the Stowed Position).
  3. On the remote control, select Menu button > Settings > Trolling Motor > Calibrate > Compass.
  4. Using the foot pedal or outboard motor to steer, follow the on-screen instructions.
