Default I pilot kit

Hi I have a power drive that is compatible with the I pilot kit and I was wondering is it worth getting even if I don’t use humming bird units?

Ipilot will function at it's full capability with any of the three platforms(Garmin, Lowrance, Humminbird). If you want contour following, you need Ipilot Link connected to the Humminbird system. I go the cheap route and mark a track at the desired depth, save it, and then follow it. Poor man's Ipilot Link.

ABSOLUTELY . . . I added one on my new boat less then 3 months after I got it. It provides me with Lock Spot and trolls to whatever speed I set it for by pushing the cruise control button and also pushing and holding the "N" button to hold a straight course. You can make your own trail and have it follow and SAVE that course. I believe it will store six courses.

I couldn't do without it now........BEST addition to my boat hands down.
