Force Trolling Motor Control
Do not run the motor when the propeller is out of the water. Contact with the rotating propeller may result in severe injury.
Do not use the motor in areas where you or other people in the water may come into contact with the rotating propeller.
Always disconnect the motor from the battery before cleaning or servicing the propeller to avoid injury.
You are responsible for the safe and prudent operation of your vessel. The autopilot features on the trolling motor are tools that enhance your capability to operate your boat. They do not relieve you of the responsibility of safely operating your boat. Avoid navigational hazards and never leave the motor controls unattended.
Learn to operate the autopilot on calm and hazard-free open water.
Use caution when operating the autopilot near hazards in the water, such as docks, pilings, and other boats.
When using the autopilot features, be prepared for sudden stops, acceleration, and turns.
When stowing or deploying the motor, be aware of slick surfaces around the motor. Slipping when stowing or deploying the motor may result in injury.
You can connect the Force® trolling motor to the chartplotter to view and control the motor using the chartplotter.
