The black series Terrova by Minn Kota has been appreciated by freshwater anglers for years. They are particularly convincing in terms of their power, ease of use, reliability and great features.
Wonderful is the new jog function, with which you can automatically move your fishing boat in any desired direction by a multiple of one and a half meters. You always have your hands free for fishing, which is ideal for any boat angler. Dropping edges or plateaus becomes a pleasure. Advanced AutoPilot and CoPilot make navigation comfortable and very easy. Cruise Control allows you to maintain the preset speed, regardless of whether your current, waves or wind are moving your boat. This allows a consistent bait run, which would never be possible with manual control.
A new and absolutely practical feature is the lever for securing and unlocking the engine in its stop position. In the past, you had to laboriously get down on your knees and exert extra effort, but now a light tap is enough to release your Minn Kota Terrova 80 BT.
Lift Assist System
The new Minn Kota Lift Assist is already integrated in all Terrova models. It is a spiral of spring steel installed on the shaft, which compensates for the weight of the engine. Almost by itself, the Terrova slides into the water after a brief purr and locks in alone. Conversely, it is just as easy: Unlock and grab with one hand just under the engine, which is then absolutely smooth and, above all, soft to lift out of the water and locks in the holding position. A wonderful innovation for all anglers who make intensive changes of place, which often happens with modern predator fishing.
The Spot Lock available on i-Pilot models allows you to re-experience your favorite fishing spots. With a few keystrokes, you can put a GPS anchor that holds you and your boat at your desired position. The novel jog feature lets you instantly navigate points at 1.5m intervals around your GPS anchor as new landmarks without incurring any additional operator effort.
Minn Kota did a really great job with the completely redesigned i-Pilot Bluetooth remote control. The significantly enlarged LCD screen, which has been completely antireflective and has a backlight, proves itself in practice absolutely. Another highlight is the intuitive and scrollable menu navigation of the i-Pilot remote control. Much has been done in terms of functionality and feel and it's fun to work with. Incidentally, this also applies if the i-Pilot remote control should have gotten wet. You can save 16 spots and these points can be controlled fully automatically at any time with the Spot Lock Recall function. If you own a smartphone or tablet, you can perform all software updates for the Minn Kota Terrova BT via the latest iOS and Android app quickly and easily. You can even control the Minn Kota outboard directly from your mobile device. Perfect for those who have forgotten the remote control at home.
Lowering / recovery assistant
The new engine mount makes raising and lowering the engine child's play: the balanced motor unit and the innovative locking system save you a lot of effort when loading and unloading the engine, while an automatic flip-up switch cuts off the power. The sprung lowering and recovery assistant helps to pull the engine out of the water or lower.
Digital Maximizer technology on all stepless Minn Kota engines
All Minn Kota stepless speed control engines are equipped with Digital Maximizer technology. This technique converts DC into a pulsating 20,000 surges per second. The amount of current supplied to the motor is adjusted by a rotary switch. As a result, no current is lost through resistors in various switching elements.
Motors with the Digital Maximizer technology remove the same amount of current at the maximum speed setting of the battery as equivalent motors with mechanical tap changer. However, at reduced speed by the digital microprocessor, the battery life of the battery is increased by up to 5 times. Especially for trolling enthusiasts, who appreciate accurate and low speeds, the Digital Maximizer technology is a huge advantage.
A test button will immediately show you the battier status, so you always know exactly how long you can stay on the water.
