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

Check hsolist and craig's list. I thought you could still get them at Fleet Farm for $70.

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.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
