Just got my 80#lb fact. installed Ipilot Terrova this week. Got it mounted and tested it Fri. and Sat. This thing is awsome!!!! I could do what I want in the 25+ winds all day. Worked it hard for 4 hours and still had 75% batt. left. Only had two problems which are easily corrected.
1. Cruise control could not react quick enough to sudden gust while trying to stay on track. Since I do not fish in 25+ winds that often not a big deal. Plus I could just set it on a constant speed.
2. Dog kept hitting the foot control buttons taking the spot lock off. To correct I just threw the dog off the boat.
Actually, I just disconected the foot control and used the remote. It is much easier than I thought it would be. Fished all day with just the remote. I envision only wanting the foot control when fishing docks or space where I need to keep hands free but maintain control.
