I agree with gofishingtom, I haven't seen an adaptor at all for them. You still have to get the old pedal. Or you could just go with a copilot.

Some power drives wont except the auto pilot. Mine is two years old to and I asked Minkota the same question and I was told I'm stuck with the old peddle. Wish I would have done more research before I bought mine. I have to remind myself I get what I pay fore and sometimes I get less

Does anyone have both pedals or schematics to see if the wiring is similar? Same basic controls so it seems it may be fairly strait forward making an adapter. Sounds like a good project to start after a couple cold ones....wont feel as bad if you mess something up. At least until the next day! whistle

From the MinnKota web page for the PowerDrive motor http://www.minnkotamotors.com/products/accessories/detail.asp?pg=copilotpowerdrive

"System is programmable to allow multiple CoPilot remotes and/or wireless foot pedals to be “learned” (up to 10 total, sold separately)"

So if you have a PowerDrive the answer appears to be yes. Of course you will need to buy a Co-Pilot and a wireless foot pedal.

According to what I read on their HSOforum, you are correct.

If you have a V2 motor you can buy the co-pilot with a hand held control, or a wireless foot pedal.

If you have a pre 2006 powerdrive (legacy) you need to buy the co-pilot with hand controller and then add the wireless foot pedal.

    • I would like to get some recipes to inject a turkey breast, and appx. how long does it take to smoke it? And whats a good wood to use ?
    • Could be that others cheated also.   I was relying on memory about the BMW connection and hypothesized that Mercedes would also have been a possibility.   I did say "maybe mercedes".     In any case, VW cheated on emissions for many years with the assent of the highest levels of management.     Apparently making a small diesel that runs ok and doesn't make too much pollution at an acceptable cost is really hard.
    • License what technology, this kind?        https://www.google.com/amp/www.cnbc.com/amp/2017/04/27/after-vws-record-fine-mercedes-benz-parent-daimler-could-be-next.html     "In light of the ongoing governmental information requests, inquiries and investigations, and our own internal investigation, it cannot be ruled out that the authorities might reach the conclusion that Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles have similar functionalities," Daimler said in its newly released quarterly report. The maker first acknowledged in January that authorities had begun probing its handling of diesel emissions. That was the same month that VW agreed to settle a criminal probe by the U.S. Justice Department, a federal judge this past week approving the payment of a $2.8 billion fine. Almost 40 times the legal limit In the VW case, the mainstream German automaker rigged the software controlling two diesel engines to recognize when a vehicle was undergoing emissions tests and then adjust pollution levels. In real-world situations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asserted, those powerplants would produce up to 40 times the legal limit for pollutants like smog-causing oxides of nitrogen. Since the scandal broke in September 2015, regulators in the U.S. and the European Union have begun rechecking the emissions claims made by other manufacturers, including Daimler, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and others. In January of this year, the EPA took aim at FCA, alleging that it may have used its own, rigged software on products like the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel which "appeared to cause the vehicles to perform differently when being tested" than when in use in real-world conditions. That same month, Daimler said that what the EPA was concerned about "apparently includ(ed) functionalities that are common in diesel vehicles, as undisclosed Auxiliary Emission Control Devices (AECD)." While the German parent of both the Mercedes-Benz and Smart brands did not confirm it had broken the law, it laid open the possibility that its own diesel emissions strategy could be in trouble. "If these or other inquiries, investigations, legal actions and/or proceedings result in unfavorable findings, an unfavorable outcome or otherwise develop unfavorably, Daimler could be subject to significant monetary penalties, remediation requirements, vehicle recalls, process improvements and mitigation measures," Daimler stated.
    •   Wow, Del I forgot all about that little discussion you started two years ago.  All the fun folks were in on it, even the LIMTOUT. That's what happens when you have short term memory loss and pictures bring on new thoughts and emotions.  Let's just call this threat the "What a dang waste and shame!" More of an aftermath threat?  K   And Del was there, and PFloyd, and Reb and Leech stop by and even the evil LIMTOUT was there! It was a nightmare!    
    • When we had are seasonal campsite I had lots of squirrels. I used all metal feeders. Come Sept them squirrels went in the freezer and cooked up for the wild game feed!
    • If you have been following the story, the reason VW got in this mess is they didn't want to license technology from BMW (or maybe Mercedes) and chose to develop their own.   When it couldn't be made to work properly, they chose to cheat rather than bite the bullet.    Long discussions of what happened as the story broke    
    • I had one of those.  Mine never quite ran right, although I lived with the quirks for years.  I have a pdf of service manual if you want it.   Mine ran rough intermittently at certain rpm.
    • If they make it better because of stupid government mandates it wouldn't bother me at all.   In fact, the Dodge ram diesel that I used to have had something from Daimler Benz that allowed it to meet the standards without DEF. I would not be surprised if they did something similar with those diesels and if they did I applaud them. The best thing anyone can do with the diesel trucks is delete the emissions and unlock the power and economy that are robbed from them.   
    • pellet gun does the job here  
    • I have to many squirrels, need the feeders with the metal holes.
