Finally got an Ultrex for my 20ft Triton. I'm planning on getting on the water with it for the first time tomorrow. I have a question on the Boat Scale feature. Right now it shows zero, should I set it to +2? The motor is 36V with 110 thrust. Thanks in advance!

I suggest you try it on +2 a couple of times then switch it to -2 just to see the difference. When I first installed my Ulterra 80 I think the default setting was +2 and the SpotLock was really harsh/aggressive when it stopped and or adjusted the boats position. Changed it to -2 and it really calmed down.

I have mine set on 0 and I use an 80 on my 20ft boat.

Do y'all find yourself using the remote much? I'm most interested in the Spot Lock feature and that can be activated/deactivated with the foot pedal.

I sometimes let my 9yr old son operate the TM with the remote. Other than that, I use the foot pedal, spot lock or link.

I kick it up to 2 when in big winds/waves and want to hold a spot. Yeah I know it's for boat scale but big winds and waves cause the boat to "seem" larger to the trolling motor. Other than that I keep it at zero.

I use the remote all the time in open water. Shallow or in stump fields I'm on the pedal.

I use the remote occasionally in open water or to mess with my son when he is at the bow. But most of the time I use the foot pedal.

If we fished the same lake over and over again then I would probably use the remote more and the link features with the HB more, but we never put in the time to utilize that stuff.

Use the menu up and menu down buttons on your remote to get to the System menu. You will see Boat Scale as an option under System menu.

I can not wait to be asking question about how to use my Ultrex!!!! Good luck - I watched a dude in the wind last Sunday sit and crappie fish from his back seat in 20 mph wind --- can not wait!


Whether you think you can or you can't, you are probably right.

Not really. The only time I use it is if I need to go across a cove and tie something on, I'll just steer it with my remote. Kills 2 birds with 1 stone.

Use the remote to create a path for you to follow. The foot pedal works well for straight lines, but the remote can store waypoints. Basically, you can use the remote to record your path. Then, you can replay it, forwards or backwards.

I'm pretty amped up too! The only downside I can see is that there is 'no give', like my old Fortrex, if you hit a stump.
