Nice!!! Dont have one myself, but have used one before. The Anchor mode is worth the money by itself. That and programing it to work a shore line.

Not sure about this...but the salesman told me that you can launch your boat and send it out of the way and set it on anchor and move your truck and park it and come back and control the boat back to you I thought that would be nice if it can be done

Catch 22 on the launch thing... you have to have the trolling motor down to move the boat with it, and you can't launch it with the trolling motor down. Figure that part out and it would probably work.

thats why I was wondering how could it be done.
although I can see where after the boat is floating
off the trailer the trolling motor wont hangup to
my trailer I will have to carefully see how I would
do it...
