MotorGuide brings GPS Anchor to kayak fishing

Lowell, Mich. (July 9, 2020) –MotorGuide is bringing the benefits of its Xi3 trolling motor to kayak fishing with a new 36” shaft motor.

MotorGuide’s Xi3 lightweight design and SecureStep system make it simple to stow and deploy the motor, even in a seated position. Along with its nearly silent operation and wireless remote, it’s the perfect addition to any kayak.

“We’re very excited to launch our Xi3 motor into the kayak market,” said Kevin Read, Associate Director of Product Marketing. “Kayak fishing is a rapidly growing sport and Xi3 will give kayak anglers an edge with our precise Pinpoint GPS anchor.”

Xi3 with available Pinpoint GPS allows anglers to focus on fishing while taking advantage of GPS functions like anchor, heading lock, route record and more. Pinpoint GPS anchoring is 3x as precise as competitive versions and is the easiest, most accurate way to drop an anchor.

“It’s an absolute game changer,” said Derek Brundle, NuCanoe Pro and 2019 KBF Northeast Angler of the Year. “Using the Pinpoint GPS Anchor mode to hold on a certain piece of structure and pick it apart without having to constantly adjust my boat position has been invaluable to improving my offshore fishing success!”

Xi3 is now available in two shorter shaft 55-pound thrust options with or without GPS, at 12 volts with 36-inch shafts. Additional information can be found on
