Comments: I went from a traditional foot control TM to this one (36v) mostly for the Anchor Mode feature. That feature & Heading Mode work very well & the motor is quite. Deploying & retrieving the motor is a challenge & frankly, not designed well for a bass boat. Adding an aftermarket handle to the shaft helped, but the "lock" pedal that must be released to raise or lower the motor is small & blocked by the large curly cord when in the up position. The foot pedal is wireless, requiring batteries & is a secondary means of control over the handheld remote. The foot control is ridiculously sensitive & difficult to use in tight spaces like dock fishing or retrieving a snagged lure close to cover. The bracket and motor extend over the bow and are dangerously exposed to damage from trailering, docks, trees, etc. I damaged mine & was told it would be a month to get parts, since the motor is so new. Luckily I kept my older traditional TM so it is on the boat again. I haven't decided which one to keep.

Comments: Thus far I very much enjoy the Xi5 MotorGuide wireless trolling motor. I am impressed by almost everything about the performance and wish that I would have purchased it much sooner. On the TW website it does not mention that the motor has GPS installed. The unit I purchased (36V, 105 lb., 54") did indeed have the GPS which is what makes this such a great product. The anchor mode works exceptionally well but the thing I like most is the ability to point the unit in a particular direction and it will pretty much take you in that direction without having to touch the trolling motor until you want to change direction; this allows you to fish long stretches of shoreline or ledges without having to do anything but fish. This came with both a wireless handheld unit and a wireless foot pedal. I use the handheld remote almost 100% of the time since it allows you to fish from anywhere on the boat and is so simple to use my 12-year old daughter can maneuver my boat with no issues; try that with a standard foot pedal motor. I was a bit taken back by the small area in which the unit is installed on the bow of my boat. It seems like it is attached very well but seems a bit shorter in length than I had expected. It is about the same size as the Minn Kota Terrova for those who are familiar with that product. I would like to also thank the TW Customer Service Rep who helped me by answering the many questions I had when deciding between the Motorguide Xi5 and Minn Kota. Awesome Job TW!!!
