Having never fished in a boat with i-Pilot or anything similar how accurate is the hold? In my experience your GPS variance alone is 8’ (good day) to 16’ (bad day). Also how much is the motor on/off...ie does it let you drift a little before kicking on or is it constantly adjusting?

The new ones now will hold the boat in three feet of mark.it ramps up slowly to
keep you in place. in strong wind . great to hold in area while putting fish in livewell
or for jigging a brush pile. you can program in a track to fish a ridge or a long line
of bank and the troll motor will run that track while you crank bait it for bass fishing
or crappie fishing brush on a levee or ridge. it will lock on a straight path also.

one man said the spot lock held him on place while he put his fish in livewell
he came back up front caught another fish put in well he did this three times
while the troll motor holds him on spot.

i have an older one that will drift back 15 feet or so before bringing you back.
the new ones have cable steer foot pedal and remote control. in the ultrex.
the ulterra is remote and self deploy.
