Ulterra has auto stow and deploy, Terrova is the same, minus auto stow and deploy, the other doesn't exist. Haha

Did you mean Ultrex?

The ultrex also has a fortrex type mount like a normal trolling motor. The ulterra and terrova have a smaller wireless trolling motor mount.

112lbs is another $250

If you're not familiar with some of the terms...

Spot lock with jog: When you're spot-locked on a location, you use the remote to move in 5 foot increments in any direction and you're then spot-locked in that location. The jog feature is the only function of the heading sensor puck that is installed on the boat. It's simply a magnetic compass, has no GPS features.


i-Pilot link: Trolling motor is linked (via an ethernet cable) to a compatible Humminbird unit. I think the main feature of this is the "follow the contour line" feature. I think you can also control the TM with the Humminbird. Not sure if spot-lock locations are saved as waypoints or not, but that would be cool. With normal spot-lock, there are some (I think 10?) places to save spot-lock locations within the remote control.

Universal sonar: There's a transducer within the head of the trolling motor that can be made to fit (with about a $30 attachment) a ton of different units. However, it's only conventional sonar; not DI or SI.

The power steering is instantaneous and effortless on the Ultrex....also the mount is a Fortrex mount. Those two things make the Ultrex the ultimate choice for a spot lock capable trolling motor.

Yes, with the link it does mark your spotlocks ( mine shows them as MOB) so you are only limited to number of spots by memory of ff.
