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!

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
