Minn Kota Copilot Beeps?

5 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a Copilot for my Minnkota 55lb PD. Last night I was on the lake when I noticed that the transmitter was producing a beep every couple of seconds. I do not recall it doing this the first time I used it and it did not have an effect on the performance. I am just wondering if any one else has had this experience and if anyone knows any remedies to cure it.

Thank you in advance for any ideas you may have.

I guess it helps to read the user manual...I found that I had the co-pilot in the wrong audio mode.

Thanks for tolerating my post.

User manual? Huh, I thought those were just extra packaging, and throw them away with the styrofoam. wink.gif

How do you like the Co-Pilot? Does it work well? Easy to use? I'm thinking of getting that control unit for my MinnKota.

and I threw my manual away....

How do you turn the darn beeping off?

I sure like mine. Great for maneuvering around a rock snag.

One caution----
Friend of mine programmed his extra remote for MY CoPilot when I wasn't looking.
Took me two days to figure out why my motor kept turning on/off, fast/slow and in every direction while were close by. Everyone had QUITE the chuckle at my expense. Almost cut him up for fish bait....

I do like my copilot, it has been very easy to use and control. They have been large in demand where I live and have been very hard to get my hands on one. I bought the last one Fleet Farm had in the St. Cloud store, but should be getting more very soon.

To turn the beeping off you need to press the + and - at the same time and the receiver will beep to tell you what audio mode it is one. Factory default is 2. There are 3 settings and the 3rd setting is the one that beeps every 1.5 seconds. By pressing + and - the receiver will beep to indicate the audio setting it is on. 1 beep indicates one, 2 indicates two and 3 indicates 3. To get the receiver to the second audio setting just listen until you hear 2 beeps and away you go.

The copilot was a little expensive at $150, but I figure it will be worth it to be able to move around the boat at my leasure.

Have a good time fish'n!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
