I know this get braught up all the time but I am doing it again. Mk ipilot, mk ultera, or mg ix5. I have nearly ruled out the ix5 because of the remote not having a screen but I do like all the reports on how good the spot lock is. Now between the other 2 is auto deploy really worth 700 extra dollars and how reliable is it. Thanks in advance for the help

Motor guide Xi5. Especially if you do any crappie fishing over brushpiles.

Really?? I think too much emphasis is put on spot lock. Honestly there is no technology that can hold a 1,000-2,000# boat exactly on a spot in winds of 10-20 mph. It just hasn't been accomplished yet. GPS position, reaction time,etc. is going to cause drift. I have a Terrova that had no problem holding me on deep brush piles. Yes it did drift on high wind days but with that being said I could still fish by watching my screen & adjusting cast angles. It never moved over 8' off my spots. I caught fish during that time. Maybe not as many as on a light breeze day but my gosh unless you're vertical fishing straight down on a spot only 3' in diameter that you can catch fish in I don't know what to tell people. Most of my brush piles are at least 6' in diameter or more. Buy what you desire based on more features than just one. I think you'll be happy with all the other features combined. Try to find someone with the ones you're interested in & go with them to see the units work. Good luck & tight lines
