I expected this motor would be similar to the ultrex but link with Lowrance systems. This confirms my expectations. They will surly get some of the market share they desire. I just hope the competition brings down the price of all units and one day I can justify buying one.

I can't help but wonder if every couple of years they will come out with a New model and quit supporting the previous one... you know, kind of like they do with their electronics....

It’s electronically assisted, cable steering. Just like Ultrex. The thing is equal to Ultrex in every way but one....it BRUSHLESS!!! About time. Zero interference with electronics, more power, and much more efficient.

Now....what is MG and Garmins new stuff gonna be like?

With the transducers in ‘interchangeable’ nosecones you will be able to update to other units easily.

Elite ti2 and above can update via Wi-Fi so it's super easy with a Samsung assuming you have cell connection

Fly by WIRE is not electric assist. Not in cars trucks etc.. AND not in their description...

"Instant and smooth fly-by-wheel steering control gives the trolling motor the feel of a cable-steer motor, but without the mechanical cables that can wear out over time. Regardless of the brand of trolling motor used before, you will quickly get comfortable with its innovative Lowrance foot pedal, which is completely user-configurable."

If it’s quiet like the regular ones.. I’ll have an ultrex 112 for sale! Ultrex is too noisy! I’ve seen it spook fish many times when turning the head!

This is why I won’t even consider an Ultrex. I currently run a Fortrex. I fish shallow 90% of the time and hearing that noise when in my buddy’s boat bothered the [censored] out of me. Hopefully the noise issues gets resolved with time. I have always been a Minn Kota guy and would hate to have to switch to a different brand in the future.

I do agree, Ronnie.

Rumors are that Garmin will be releasing their own trolling motor this year.
