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. 

Some of these issues can be temporarily resolved by power cycling the trolling motor, while it is deployed, but can only be fully resolved with a software update through the Pinpoint Gateway. This update and resolution supersedes the instructions noted in service bulletin MG2021-01 where an upgrade dongle was required.

Please read the Xi Pinpoint SWUP 22 Installation Instructions before beginning, and make sure your Lowrance/Simrad display is running the latest software version. You will need a 16GB or 32GB SD card - follow the links below to download the SWUP 22 and SWUP 07 files to your computer and place on your compatible SD card.

If you are using an EliteFS display to update the Xi trolling motor, please contact your regional Lowrance customer support for assistance in updating the Xi trolling motor using a SWUP.

New software for the Xi Series trolling motors brings a variety of enhancements and system robustness to include the following:

  • Enhanced GPS accuracy for route/follow go-to functions
  • "Sleep blink" - status LED blinks dim to bright while stowed to indicate power is on to the trolling motor (applicable to most Xi5 models)
  • M212 heading lock compass mode, bug fix for operation while networked to a Pinpoint Gateway
  • Displayed thrust percentage bug fix
  • Other software enhancement and fixes
