    Old Minn Kota

    Well can't get a replacement foot control for my pre 2007 powerdrive. Couldn't I just buy the newer model and splice my rectangular plug-in on it?? Or is this just a pipe dream....

      Try looking for a copilot for your unit. You should be able to learn a new cordless footpedal to it or just use the fob. Also do some research on installing a powerdrive V2 control board in your unit.

        Well I replaced the old power drive with a new to me terrova. The question is, the old power drive has a built in transducer on the nose, and the terrova does not, can I (or more than likely a professional) switch out those nose pieces so the terrova gets the transducer?

            If your PD and Terrova are the same diameter you may want to give it a try. You will also have to make sure the armature shafts are the same also. You maybe better off getting a trolling motor mount for your transducer.

                After searching the internet and reading many articles, watching several YouTube’s and talking with a couple local repair shops I recently called MinnKota and they helped me diagnose the defective part on my powerdrive v2 iPilot. It wound up being a rather pricey conversion but after using the remote with the gps functions for the last 9 years it was worth every penny. I didn’t realize how dependent I was on this piece of equipment.

                  I've got a Humminbird XTM DI 25 T that I'm ready to part with. I bought it for my Terrova but my Terrova has the "Lift Assist" built-in and I decided that I didn't want to remove the lift assist assembly in order to glue the cable to the shaft ( you can do that with the older Terrovas). I ran the cable inside a piece of coiled air hose but finally decided that the built-in 2D sonar was sufficient. I hope to move to an Ultrex over the winter as well. Here's the compatibility list...
