Down Imaging transducer integrated into the trolling motor, providing a clean set up at the bow for anglers. Humminbird's ultra-clear MEGA Imaging is the first Down Imaging technology to enter the megahertz range with performance that's nearly three times greater than traditional 455 kHz frequencies. It results in the clearest, sharpest on-screen images ever seen.With Built-In MEGA Down Imaging, the transducer is housed in the indestructible lower motor unit and the wiring runs through the composite shaft providing clean rigging that is protected from wear and tear. Having the transducer integrated into the trolling motors allows anglers to see, with unmatched clarity, what is directly below the bow of the boat, allowing anglers to make better decisions on where, and how, to fish.As part of the One-Boat Network the new Minn Kota trolling motors with Built-In MEGA Down Imaging feature i-Pilot Link The new trolling motors are compatible with Humminbird SOLIX, second generation HELIX, and ONIX models and will be available in the fall of 2018.
