I'm currently an Xi5 user, but will soon be outfitting a new rig, and thinking of going with the Xi3. For the life of me, I can't determine what I would be giving up, if anything.

Care to offer a comparison?

Thumbs up

Main Differences: Voltage and Thrust options, mount and latches, and what's included in the box.

Xi3: Available in 12v and 24v options with thrusts of 45, 55, and 70 pounds max shaft length is 60"
Xi5: Available in 12v, 24v, and 36v options with thrusts of 55, 80, and 105 pounds max shaft length is 72"

Xi3: Mount contains single stow/deploy latch and no front overhang. efficiencies in the transimission decreased weight and decreased effort to stow/deploy
Xi5: Mount contains dual latches for higher thrust lower units and has front overhang to guide in larger lower units to dual stow latches.

Xi3: wireless out of the box, also available in Pinpoint GPS versions with Pinpoint remote (Xi wireless foot pedal compatible as an optional accessory)
Xi5: wireless out of the box, also available in Pinpoint GPS versions with Pinpoint remote plus Xi wireless foot pedal included in box.

What is the same:
-Premium composite shaft with lifetime warranty
-Pinpoint GPS models available
-Sonar options available
-3 blade prop included
-2 year warranty
-quietest motor in its' class
-easiest to use motor in its' class
-Wireless foot pedal compatible

Of course it all depends on your boat's specific needs. the size of your boat (weight, side wall height, etc) and battery space are two major limiting factors you will need to evaluate to determine the shaft length and pound thrust needed for your boat.

see you on the water!

Thank you! I'm a 12V/54" user, so the Cabela's 52# is close enough. I see there's a $400 difference between the (2) 52#/54" models they offer, can I assume the $899 not only has the Pinpoint GPS but also the built-in sonar transducer? They have unique model numbers, so I can't compare to your model number chart.

The XI3 is about the same. It has a really poor audible tone. The shaft on mine broke in three months. Fortunately motor guide replace it. Mine has the GPS and Spot Lock and I am selling it.
