I put the terrova on my boat add love it but I primarily fish in freshwater where depths would be to much for a power pole. The late model version is spot on as far as holding the boat on a mark.

I have a Terrova and Spot lock works just as good in 2ft of water as it does in 30ft. Just have to adjust the dept of the trolling motor which takes 6 seconds.

TM with spot lock for sure. You will use it all the time.

As for the issues with mounting these electric steer trolling motors or those of you that are concerned with how much the electric steer trolling motors protrude out from the boat, I created the LiftSaver TM Mount for the MG Xi5 but wanted to throw out that it also works for the MK Terrova, Ulterra, PD V2 and Riptide. It helps solve a lot of the mounting issues with these electric steer motors. Take a few minutes to look at the website and PM if I can answer any questions or help you out in any way.

LiftSaver Trolling Motor Mounting Bracket - Patent Pending

Works with MG Xi5, Xi3 and MK Terrova, Ulterra, PD V2 and Riptides as well.

My 8th year with i-Pilot/Link since introduction, no water depth limits on "anchor" mode - a.k.a. Spot-lock...

Power Pole isn't too good in 30 fow...LOL
