The last couple of times I've been out, my Ultrex has lost spot lock multiple times. Does not do it every time, and when it does it seems like it will do it a couple of times in a row. Has anyone had this issue at all?

One trip....three times in a row. I found out the handle was getting blown into the pedal recess. Causing the pedal to cancel the lock.

Hmm... I'll have to look for that next time, but don't think that was happening.

Yes I have had spot lock go off a couple of times on three different trips. I am going to recalibrate it the next time I am in the boat and see if that might help.

Never had that happen. Hope you get it resolved fast.

I had this happen to me make sure the foot pedal has free movement if there is any thing underneath it it will cancel
Also watch for it canceling in the same spot when it is swinging left and right

I can't afford that motor, but if one of you rich folk want to buy me one, I'll go out and use it a lot and let you know if I have the same problem.

They are very sensitive. When your spot lock is on if you touch any other part of the foot pedal it will cancel it also.

If it is very calm it will search a lot for the spot.

If the head or foot pedal have any restriction of free movement it will cancel spot lock. Make sure your cables at the head have plenty of slack.
