Connecting to a Chartplotter

Your compatible Garmin® chartplotter must have the latest software version installed before you can connect the trolling motor.

You can connect the trolling motor wirelessly to a compatible Garmin chartplotter on your boat. After you connect to a compatible chartplotter, you can control the trolling motor from the chartplotter in addition to the remote control and foot pedal.

  1. Turn on the chartplotter and the trolling motor.
  2. Make sure that the chartplotter is hosting a wireless network.
    NOTE: If you have multiple chartplotters installed, only one is the wireless network host. Consult your chartplotter's owner's manual for more information.
  3. On the chartplotter, select Settings > Communications > Wireless Devices > Garmin Trolling Motor > Start.
  4. On the trolling motor display panel, press Power button three times to enter pairing mode.

    Synchronization icon on the trolling motor display panel illuminates blue as it searches for a connection to the chartplotter, and changes to green when the connection is successful.

    A confirmation message appears on the chartplotter when the connection is successful.

  5. After the chartplotter and trolling motor connect successfully, enable the trolling motor bar on the chartplotter to control the motor.

    See the latest version of your chartplotter's owner's manual for complete operation instructions.
