Motorguide is excited to introduce its new Xi5 wireless trolling motor
The Xi5 wireless trolling motor marks a key milestone in MotorGuide’s history. It is the culmination of a renewed focus and significant R&D investment to design, engineer and manufacture best-in class trolling motors.
The Xi5 wireless trolling motor is designed to exceed the expectations of today’s discriminating fisherman. It’s engineered to be reliable every day – and durable over the long haul. Unlike its competition, the new Xi5 wireless trolling motor includes “out of the box” wireless capability, where anglers can command precise motor and steering control from anywhere on the boat. A wireless foot pedal is standard with freshwater models and a hand-held remote is standard with saltwater models. Plus, they’ve made it stealthy quiet and silky smooth. And you’ll also see thoughtful details that make it safe and easy to use.
Easy to read LED dashboard
The Xi5 wireless trolling motor uses LED lights in the controller so anglers can quickly check the status of four key functions in any light conditions.
- Power ON / System Ready
- Propeller ON
- Pinpoint GPS System Active
The battery power indicator uses different coloured lights to show three levels of battery life in real time.
Wireless pedal for precise control
The Xi5 wireless trolling motor’s pedal provides outstanding motor control from anywhere on the boat. The intuitive, pro-style “heel-toe” operation controls steering that’s extremely quiet, precise and 50% faster than its competition. Digital variable speed control enables exceptional low-speed trolling capability and longer run time.
All-new composite shaft
The new composite shaft can take on any and all obstructions that get in its way. It’ll bend, but won’t break. That’s why it’s backed by a lifetime warranty.
Next-Gen digital technology
The wireless pedal provides outstanding motor control from anywhere on the boat. The new digital technology features durable cooler-running power electronics that are 50% more efficient. They also capture and store energy that is typically lost as heat. This improved efficiency means longer run time and fewer battery charges. Digital speed control delivers power, smoothly and incrementally, at the precise level needed by the operator.
An improved low-profile mount is all about form and function. The base uses anodised aluminum to prevent corrosion. The hardware components are stainless steel throughout, including the linkage that’s built to be extra tough. The unique stow and deploy mechanism aligns and guides the motor into the stowed position and secures it in place. For added safety, a secondary lock prevents unintentional deployment and potential damage.
