    Hello, I'm looking for a new foot control for a MINN KOTA powerdrive/autopilot bow mount trollong motor. I know Cabela's, Bass Pro and Gander Mountain probably has them, I think they cost around $70.00 new. Just curious if any place might have them cheaper. I checked E-BAY, didn't see any. Any thoughts??????

    I was wrong, the big three don't carry them. I have to get it from a "factory service center" and they are $68.00. I guess there's no getting around it.

    Fish4fun, I wish I could help, the answer to your questions are unknown to me, on both. Here is the deal. I traded stuff I had with a friend for it. He bought it new a few(4/5)years ago maybe??? Its a 42lb thrust, he bought a new 75lb (or so). He said the auto pilot did not work, something with the control???? I don't know a thing about these things, but I did not get the control with it. He said he round filed it. I did find a new one on E-BAY, saved $20.00. bought it today. I only hope that after I get the control it will work. I'm not too worried about the auto pilot feature because I don't plan on trolling. I just want to be able to control it for bass fishing, its not an easy thing to do with a 9.9 merc, lol. Sorry I could not answer your questions. If the control doesn't fix it for me I'll be asking members for help myself, as I often do.
