Long gone are the days when we had to follow a few backdated mechanisms to find out our back-way to the shore.
And back in the time, deep-sea fishing was deemed just terrible because of the superficial reason of losing track of where you came from. We are not talking about the stars at all, the past history where the anglers had taken to using a compass.
Modern technology has, however, altered the whole game plan for commercial and habitual fishing.
Out of many modern devices that do more than just a compass to always remember your back path.
The smart anglers go with the smart devices to make their every fishing trip worth the time, and yes when you do want to welcome the convenience, you gotta pay for it!
It is not just about getting the boat prepared, although we appreciate having the i-Pilot trolling motor installed which is ultimately your very first step towards the convenience you deem to enjoy in the open sea, for the best fishing experience, the combination of i-Pilot and the fish finder. But sad to state, not all the fish finders will work with i-Pilot, there is the compatibility part you must adhere to in order to spend on the right device.
And when you have an i-Pilot, you cannot interchange it altogether but find compatible fish finders. So, what fish finder works with i-Pilot, and i-Pilot Link (the upgraded version with a series of A-grade features) to not waste your investment. Those fish finders that do not work with i-Pilot, will not really work at all costs!
