Lowrance has partnered with MotorGuide to create a revolutionary link to offer boaters an entire new level of precision and control when it comes to navigation. PinpointConnect is a seamless interface that links all Lowrance HDS Gen2 and Gen2 Touch models to MotorGuide’s Xi5 Wireless Trolling Motor for advanced navigation. It’s now easier than ever to stay locked onto a submerged wreck, follow a route you’ve created on your Gen2 Chartplotter of an old road bed, or even lock in the cruise control to maintain a constant speed against the wind or current. It is top priority of this partnership to provide users with the crucial tools needed to catch more fish and enhance their overall experience on the water for years to come.
