Default Upgrading a MK Ulterra

Making a deal on a new to me boat which is equipped with a Ulterra 112 with iPilot.

Can this be upgraded to iLink? Would it be worth going to the Bluetooth and the new remote?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, your motor can be upgraded. I bought and installed a link module in my Terrova 80 i pilot last year. I just looked online and every upgrade kit that I saw was the old type remote without the blue tooth or the new features. I'm sure however, that a call to Minn kota would clear up the matter though.

I just called MK about my 2016 ulterra, 1 hr ago, I upgraded to a new 2017 model, My spare remote will not work with my 2017 motor, But any smart phone will work after you download the app, I even asked if I could just upgrade the head on my 2016 and they said it wont work, So no interchanging of brains, Unless MK lied which I couldn't see

Apologies everyone, I meant to say Ulterra.

The boat I'm selling has a Terrova, just a slip..

Make sure if this boat is new that you are getting a 2017 ulterra with the new bluetooth ipilot or ipilot link. If you get a 2016 or older you WILL NOT be able to use the bluetooth system, I asked as well as I have a 2016 motor.

I don't think you can buy the i pilot link aftermarket kit for ulterra, but I may be wrong.

The link is about $300 extra when you buy the motor new, if you buy the kit it's about $800.

Just buy the motor you want.
