Do they still make these overseas or something, I know he's used these for years but the one he has now has a white directional indicator like they updated some of the cosmetics. I would love to buy another one of these just to stash away if they still exist. Still using the one I have. Was going to upgrade to the Force or Ghost a few years back until I saw the price and its only gone up since then, then I was going to upgrade to the new Tour last year but I keep hearing bad reviews and issues. So if its not broke not going to fix it until my current one dies.

If someone gave me a motor guide in the box I’d empty it of electrical components (directly into trash) then use it as it should be. A trot line anchor.

Everyone has their opinion. I've only run Motorguide for almost 40 years. They have been extremely dependable and I wouldn't want any other brand

Ive had both the old main brands, know there's some new players now, and out of those 2 always preferred the MG they just seemed to be more powerful for the rating that was on the side compared to MK.

And he was complaining about hard boat control was. Re ties and boat drifts. Really surprised he doesn’t have spot lock.

Motor guide had the market for years and was a better product until minnkota put out the fortrex. That caught them up atleast.

I've used both at different times for many years. Started with MG 24 v, then went to a 36v beast but when Minn Kota came out with the prop that cut through hydrilla I bought it.
Now with hardly any of that grass where I fish I don't really need it. But when I bought the Ranger it came with a 24v Fortrex and it works pretty darn good. Just wish that it had come with spot lock instead.
