Minn Kota Ultrex–Trusted. Dependable. Proven.

Minn Kota® Ultrex combines the GPS anchoring of Spot-Lock® with the control of Power Steering—all with proven Minn Kota power and reliability.


Universally trusted for more than 85 years by bass anglers everywhere, Minn Kota’s family of trolling motors are known for their unrivaled toughness while still delivering the precision control desired by the world’s top anglers. Minn Kota revolutionized how anglers use a trolling motor when they added the GPS power of Spot-Lock by combining the best of both worlds with the most accurate GPS anchor system and extremely comfortable and responsive foot-steering capability in a single unit. Minn Kota Ultrex isn’t the only trolling motor with these features, but it is the only trolling motor that has proven itself, year after year, in any conditions and on all types of water. But don’t just take Minn Kota’s word for it, see how Ultrex has forever changed the way anglers fish.


Spot-Lock can only be found on select Minn Kota trolling motors including Ultrex, and since its debut in 2010 the phrase “spot lock” has become synonymous across the angling community with holding a boat on a fixed location. But it is the originator that remains far and away the most accurate GPS anchor system yet. Spot-Lock has proven time and time again that there is no substitute for the original. Stay where you want, when you want, with the utmost confidence that your boat will hold its position regardless of whether you encounter strong winds, big waves or raging currents, all with a simple touch of a single button on the i-Pilot® or i-Pilot Link remote.

Trusted by anglers to deliver them to the fish in any conditions, Ultrex allows you to take command how you choose, and from anywhere on your boat, with the i-Pilot remote, i-Pilot Link remote or mobile app. With i-Pilot Link, you can even control your motor from your Humminbird® fish finder as part of the One-Boat Network®.


Are you looking for more traditional command over your boat’s trolling motor? Then engage the Ultrex foot pedal to maneuver and even Spot-Lock your boat on that prime piece of structure. With Power Steering, anglers experience far-reduced foot fatigue over traditional cable-steer motors. That means more time on the water with more comfort and responsiveness than ever before, allowing you to put more fish on the boat. For even more ease of use, the Ultrex foot pedal features Steering Lock to keep the motor in a set position even after removing your foot. Spend your time fishing, not fighting your trolling motor!

Ultrex with Spot-Lock is the only trolling motor that has been put to the test by real fishermen, on the water for years, and keeps coming out on top. Often imitated, but never duplicated, it simply does not get any better than this.
