Xi Series Software Update

Xi Series software Update

For consumers networked to a Lowrance/Simrad MFD via a Gateway Kit (8M0092085), there could be updates available that address connectivity/performance annoyances you might experience with your Pinpoint GPS enabled Xi Series motor. We've created an update questionnaire (linked below) to help guide you to the applicable update for your Xi Series motor. It is very important that you follow the directions provided at end of the questionnaire before making any updates to your Xi Series motor.

Please make sure your Lowrance/Simrad MFD is running the latest software, you have your Xi Series model and serial numbers, and are able to access your networked trolling motor before starting this process. 

NOTE: This only applies to Xi Series Motors equipped with a Pinpoint Gateway System.

Items needed to complete the Questionnaire:

  • Model Number
  • Serial Number
  • Access to your NMEA Networked Lowrance/Simrad graph
  • Access to your Pinpoint enabled Xi Series motor
  • Sufficiently charged batteries
  • A way to take notes on which update applies to your motor
