Garmin Force Freshwater/Saltwater Trolling Motor with wireless chartplotter connectivity provides navigation, autopilot and anchor lock features. Use the precise anchor lock to hold your boat in the same location while you fish. Force includes a convenient wireless foot pedal that provides instant control and responsiveness yet feels and steers like a cable-steered pedal. See more fish and structure clearly with integrated Ultra High-Definition scanning sonar. It also includes a handheld remote control with a built-in sunlight-readable display. The remote gives you complete control of the trolling motor and simple point-and-go gesture steering.
You get the best of all three. The powerful Force trolling motor has the power to move you from spot to spot more quickly and stand up better to winds and currents. Even with all that power, it is also the most efficient trolling motor available so you can count on it to fish all day. And it is still whisper quiet. Its high-efficiency brushless motor operates at either 36 V or 24 V. When running at 24 V, it delivers comparable thrust to our competitors’ 36 V motors. The most powerful, most efficient and quiet trolling motor — it’s everything you could want in a trolling motor.
Wireless Chartplotter Integration and Built-in Autopilot
Simple integration with your Garmin chartplotter via a wireless connection makes using the built-in autopilot easy. Create routes to your favorite waypoint, and follow tracks while you fish. The built-in autopilot, with integrated heading sensor and GPS, provides anchor lock, heading hold and cruise control. Check your settings on the unit, your chartplotter or sunlight-visible remote display. Just set your track, and it will guide you along your course.
The Force trolling motor comes with an integrated transducer with CHIRP traditional and Ultra High-Definition ClearVü and SideVü scanning sonars with imperceptible sonar noise interference. The cable management system protects the built-in transducer cables as well as additional accessories, including the full range of Panoptix™ and Panoptix LiveScope™ sonars. Full sonar support is available for the GPSMAP® 8400/8600xsv and ECHOMAP™ Ultra models only. See the specs tab for more details on partial sonar support.
Robust and Easy to Use
The Force trolling motor is built to last. It’s rugged and durable yet easy to deploy, and it’s easy to retract and stow with dual gas springs. It’s backed with a 3-year warranty and a limited lifetime warranty on the shaft.
