Rockmike, I am asking how old but I guess the question is, Is it a Bluetooth ipilot link? They have differing features. Bob

Lithium batteries pretty well go from full voltage to dead. There’s not much fall off in voltage before they are discharged. When it happens you have to manually stow unless you have a detachable mount.

Understand, I have a monitor on my Lithium but I plug in the charger when I come back in and have never come close to draining them. Maybe a 2 day trip might be different. Thanks

NOTE: I emailed MK. It agrees with the premise you will know as it won't let you do anything but stow, but vaguely.

Hello, The motor battery strength will display at the top of the remote for the Ulterra and the battery will continue to decrease as the batteries drain. The battery icon will only display when the prop is not running so the best thing to do it to monitor periodically after being out on the water a while. The motor does try to conserve energy to be able to stow, however if motor is actively being used when getting low that may not always be reliable so we recommend monitoring the strength of batteries.
