Question for Terrova owners

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering how fast the steering is on the Terrova? Is it the same as the powerdrives? I am used to a cable steer that you can steer very quickly but I would like to have autopilot also. Seems like the Terrova may be a good mix between the two if the steering isn't too slow. Anyone have any other problems with them? Thanks in advance.

I don't own a Terrova but have used them quite a bit. I own a PowerDrive myself. I think the Terrova is a little faster in steering response, although definately not as fast as a cable steer motor.

Mine is faster than my version 1 power drive was. May it rest in peace.

It seems plenty fast for me, but I have never used the cable type.

Love that autopilot.

I got my terrova this last summer. I really do like it. I think as far as turning goes, it is a little too fast for me. I think a little slower would be better for minor steering adjustments, for me any way.

My Terrova steer much quicker that my old AutoPilot. I love that aspect. Now, I wish they could incorporate the old Autodrive foot control to the Terrova. The Terrova foot control is awful, IMO. Unless you use the "rocker" pedal, you have to have very dainty, precise toes work to push the thruster w/o steering left / right at the same time. My big cloddhoppers struggle with that, esp. now in the fall with boots on. Small changes in speed need to be made by hand, at least my experience. I'd buy an older foot control for it if possible, but would never go back to the old AutoDrive.

I run a power drive on my walleye boat and like it, cable drive on the muskie boat I HATE. Run my buddys Terrova in a tourney awhile back and man is it sweet. I like the new pedal design over the old power drives. Cable steers may be good for something, what it is I'm not sure.
