We just took our most trusted GPS feature to the next level. Spot-Lock uses
GPS to lock you onto a fishing spot, and now we've reengineered it to work
smarter and hold you stronger and more accurately than ever. Updated with
hardware and software algorithms for better accuracy, Spot-Lock is the most
accurate GPS anchor ever. You can see for yourself with the new "Distance to
Spot" reading on the remote, to show you just how close you are.
Push-to-Test Battery Meter
The push-to-test battery meter on Riptide PowerDrive gives you an instant
"state of charge" reading at the push of a button, so you can see just how much
longer you have on the water.
Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a
single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any
energy. These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let
Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your
battery - extending your time on the water.

Advantage Minn Kota
Indestructible Composite Shaft: Pound for pound, our
composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won’t break,
kink or corrode. That’s why we’re confident enough to guarantee it for life.
Cool, Quiet, Power:Nothing runs cooler or quieter than a
Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in
cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique
bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.
Advanced Corrosion Protection: Riptide's premium-grade
alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor
plating & a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint. With layers of
protection, the elements are truly protected.
Fully Encapsulated Electronics: Marine-grade urethane fully
encapsulates Riptide control boards to protect the electronic circuitry. All
electrical connections are sealed with waterproof heat-shrink tubing to keep
Sacrificial Anode: We use metals that are properly balanced
& a composite shaft to ward off galvanic corrosion. So the only piece left for
saltwater to attack is this little zinc anode, which absorbs corrosion so the
rest of the motor doesn't have to.
This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
