Troller Question…. I have a Minn Kota Terrova that I am going to put a Co-Pilot on… I am curious if the older Powerdrive V2 Co-Pilot unit will work on the newer motor.. The one made for the Terrova has a full on feature (great for throwing everone out of the boat) I do not care for this and there is a $50 price difference in the Co-Pilot unit.
Gary Briggs: I think they have a different plug. Mine wont fit my buddies terrova
Duane Skippy Manska: there is a flat plug and a round plug… I know it needs the round one but I was not sure if it was the same.
Gary Briggs: There are 2 different round plugs. The newer terrova wont take the copilot from my V2
Gary Briggs: My buddy had to pay 50 bux more for his copilot than I did.
Duane Skippy Manska: Ok thats what I was wanting to know… thank you man… I guess I got to bite the bullet … then cut the button off the remote. lol
Duane Skippy Manska: The older remotes will work on the newer unit though i believe
Gary Briggs: Yep, my remote works on his unit.
Duane Skippy Manska: that is good because the older remote is $20 cheaper and does not have the full on button
Gary Briggs: That would be the only button I hit. People better be on their A game.
Duane Skippy Manska: I wear my remote on a short loop on my belt loop… sometimes when you bend over your gut hits the buttons… bad time to go full blast! haha
Gary Briggs: Ive dont the same, sitting on an ice chest working on arrows and twist to grab something. Troller going crazy.
Gary Briggs: Plus your buddy with the other remote has no control till you release yours. Can turn into a real shit show real quick
Duane Skippy Manska: haha yes… I had a buddy I had to yell at all the time…. get off the remote fat ass!! lol
Gary Briggs: How insensitive. LMAO
Duane Skippy Manska: If I like you …. I will mess with you on the daily…. If I am nice to you… means we probably wont be friends haha.
Gary Briggs: Youd fit right in on my crew. Thank the gods we dont have a HR department.
Duane Skippy Manska: haha I bet
Joey Pruitt: The first power drive used a oval shaped plug. V2 uses a round one. Im pretty sure a Terrova is the same round plug.
Duane Skippy Manska: yes it is a round plug and I know they make the older unit with the round plug also… was not sure if its compatible
Joey Pruitt: Not sure on the 2 round plugs.
Yogie Warren: Mine should be here this week if you wznt to t try it
Duane Skippy Manska: you will love it brotha … no more pedal!
Joey Pruitt: Get 2 remotes. That way others can steer when you shoot a fishy.
Duane Skippy Manska: I usually keep 3 on the boat.. you can not have to many thats for sure.
Duane Skippy Manska: Gary answered my question above… it will not work … thank you Joey.
Joey Pruitt: And these retractable lanyards are sweet.
Duane Skippy Manska: Not a bad idea… will it float with that on it?
Duane Skippy Manska: I use a small loop of bright orange retriever line… I can loop it through my belt loop and it will float with it on … plus the orange is easier to see.
Joey Pruitt: I doubt itll float. Is nice being able to just let go of it and it zips right back to my belt loop.
Duane Skippy Manska: I do like that idea too.. I may have try it out. thanks for the idea
Joey Pruitt: No probs.
Joey Pruitt: Theyre just a couple dollars
