    Minn Kota® Launches New Trolling Motors with
    Built-In MEGA Down Imaging™

    RACINE, Wis., July 9, 2018 – Minn Kota®, the leader in trolling motor innovation, will debut Built-In MEGA Down Imaging™ in its trolling motors at the American Sportfishing Association’s International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST).

    For the first time, anglers will have the option to select a Minn Kota Ulterra™, Terrova®, Ultrex™ or Fortrex® trolling motor with Built-In MEGA Down Imaging sonar. The Humminbird® MEGA Down Imaging transducer will now be integrated into the trolling motor to provide a clean set up at the bow for anglers. Humminbird’s ultra-clear MEGA Imaging™ is the first Down Imaging technology to enter the megahertz range with performance that’s nearly three times greater than traditional 455 kHz frequencies. It results in the clearest, sharpest on-screen images ever seen.

    With Built-In MEGA Down Imaging, the transducer is housed in the indestructible lower motor unit and the wiring runs through the composite shaft providing clean rigging that is protected from wear and tear. In addition, having the transducer integrated into the trolling motors allows anglers to see what is directly below the bow of the boat, allowing anglers to make better decisions on where, and how, to fish.

    “The integration of Minn Kota and Humminbird products is part of our commitment to providing innovative solutions for anglers as they seek to find and catch more fish,” said Minn Kota Brand Manager Brad Henry.

    As part of the One-Boat Network™, the new Minn Kota trolling motors with Built-In MEGA Down Imaging feature Bluetooth® and i-Pilot® Link™. Bluetooth compatibility allows anglers to control the trolling motor from the Minn Kota app and make software updates wirelessly. Anglers can utilize i-Pilot Link to control their trolling motor from the Humminbird unit, the app or the i-Pilot remote to “follow” a contour at a set speed – with the press of a button the boat will automatically follow the exact path.

    The new trolling motors are compatible with Humminbird SOLIX®, second generation HELIX®, and ONIX® models and will be available in the fall of 2018. For more information visit
