I think that this is what needs to be done to fix it. I have had the same setup twice now and mine works perfectly. There are two settings that need to be set. One it seems like you may already have right and that would be to set the lowrance to trolling. Then there is another setting where you tell the trolling motor how to react once it reaches a waypoint. Set that to anchor. With those two settings, the Xi5 will go to your waypoint from the lowrance or to where you touched the screen or whatever and when it reaches the waypoint it will go in anchor mode. Then I use the jog (arrow) keys to move my position in 5' increments until I get positioned like I want. Hope this helps.
Here is what I found on the net....
