Looks to be a cross between the Fortrex and Terrova Motors. Cable steer foot control with anchor mode electric steer.

I only hope that they incorporated the DI transducer into the motor....

Interesting. I wonder if there are plans to re vamp the Terrova and Ulterra to two antennas?

I've seen reports on it and it says it will have the built in sonar. Faster foot control than normal cable drives, take foot off the pedal and it will hold the course, adaptable to ipilot and ipilot link. Price 2100-2500. 24v and 36v

Wait until they have been out for a while and the online dealers will probably run some good prices on them. If you buy as soon as they hit the streets, plan on paying MSRP.
I bought my Riptide and both HBs online and saved a ton of money. No tax and free shipping adds up to money in your pocket.

Humminbird only states that they are an independent retailer, not that there are any issues with buying from them. That said, I don't know why anyone who has done any online price checking would buy from them. If there are retailers who are on HB's "black list", I would think a call to HB would disclose if there would be any warranty issues buying from them and it doesn't take that long to make a phone call

Holding with-in 1-2 feet. It was strongly stated that it is the most accurate spot lock system "EVER" on the market today and If I am following this correctly it has the GPS antenna in the head unit as well as a External Heading Sensor GPS Antenna for two GPS antennas.... That is a bonus thumbs up!!!!

Sounding pretty darn good to me fellas...

They have the reinvented spot lock coming fall of 2016 (probably more like Feb/Mar of 2017) to all the i pilot / i pilot link models. Hope they make it available to update existing units...

Actually looks better than buying from humminbirds REAL store. Humminbirds real store only sells reconditioned and seconds. This unofficial store more than likely sells new...not refurbs. And likely cheaper too. Haha

Not cheaper.. Do some price checks. Hodges Marine and Star Marine are a couple of places I found with cheaper prices. At one time the argument for buying local was the "service after the sale", but you are going to be referred to the factory for any equipment issues anyway, so there is no reason not to buy where you get the most bang for the buck.

I hope this thing lives up to the expectations. I've been tempted to throw my Terrova in the lake a few times. I guess the sign to look for is to see how many pros are using it.
