The Minn Kota 1866550 i-Pilot Replacement Remote w/ Bluetooth really lets you dial in your boat position. The same i-Pilot that lets you record and retrace paths, lock onto a fishing spot, and command steering and speed, has been redesigned with a bigger LCD screen, better controls, and more options.

Redesigned Remote
The 33% larger LCD screen is fully viewable in sunlight, has expanded menu navigation, and features more intuitive controls, making the i-Pilot remote better than ever.

Bluetooth Communication
The new i-Pilot system connects via Bluetooth to allow for easy software updates via your smartphone to add new features to your system.

i-Pilot Phone App
Bluetooth communication allows the new i-Pilot to pair with your smartphone, for easy software updates and quick command of steering, speed, high speed bypass, Spot-Lock, and Advanced AutoPilot.

Heading Sensor
Select i-Pilot systems feature a new Heading Sensor, which recognizes changes in the boat's heading due to current and wind, and communicates with the i-Pilot system to minimize boat swing for a stronger and more accurate hold.

Reinvented Spot-Lock
Enhanced with new software algorithms and hardware, Spot-Lock holds you tighter to your fishing spot than ever before, making it the most accurate electronic GPS anchor ever.

Spot-Lock Jog
Move your Spot-Lock five feet backward, forward, right, or left - with the simple push of a button.

  • Advanced AutoPilot: Stay on a heading automatically
  • iTrack Record/Playback: Store and retrace up to six 2-mile trolling paths to return to later
  • CoPilot: Monitor and control steering, speed, prop on/off and high speed bypass

Hi, I have a Riptide RT55SP I pilot  2017 model in Australia and I am wondering if this unit is compatible with it. 

The remote looks exactly the same however not sure if the Minn Kota sold in Australia are comparable with the ones in the USA. Also do you sell the Blue tooth heading sensor and are they also compatible.


1 Answer
We suggest all transactions and replacement parts be sourced in the same region that the motor was purchased. Provided you own a Bluetooth ready model, the remote you are asking about will work.

Per Minn Kota:

"HEADING SENSOR ONLY.  Compatible with Bluetooth-enabled i-Pilot systems only. This remote will only work with i-Pilot systems that are equipped with Bluetooth.  It is NOT compatible with systems that do not use Bluetooth
