New 189 Owner (to be) trying to decide on electronics...
Just ordered a 189 from Frank yesterday...left the Electronics open while I try to sort it all out.
I want compatibility with the FMT chip and have narrowed the choice down to Lowrance or Simrad...leaning towards the Lowrance HDS Gen3 9 or 12.
However, now I'm wondering about the GPS "talking" to the trolling motor. I like the concept of pointing to a spot on the chartplotter and have the trolling motor go there.
My 189 order currently has the MinnKota 24v with iPilot. Lowrance units do not talk to MinnKota trolling motors. So now I'm wondering if it is worth trying to get compatible units?
Are many of you using GPS/Trolling motor combos that talk to each other?
What units to you have?
Are you happy?
Any ideas or thoughts are welcomed.
