Motorguide X5-80FW 45" 24V SNR

Does anyone have reviews on this trolling motor? How does it work on low and high speeds?
Any issues deploying or storing?

What sonar's will work with this motor?

Do the mounting holes match at 82lb tour mount?

Mounting holes will match up. The sonar is directly Lowrance compatable (blue connections) but an adapter can be purchased for Garmin, Lowrance black "D" connector, or Humminbird. The sonar is strickly sonar 83/200 with temp. Motor has a cam action for turning quicker at certain points in the steering. Stowing is stiff as should be to allow for a tight latch. Mounting holes will line up now -- didn't on earlier mounts.
If I can help, give me a call
John

Great information John. Thanks. I will keep you in mind if I decide to go this way. I would like downscan at least so it looks like I won't need the one with sonar. I would need to use a different transducer.

I have one without sonar it feels lighter than the tour and turns way easier.
After adding the equalizer shocks and troll perfect it's been my favorite motor.
