How to connect Humminbird fish finder to Motorguide trolling motor

Is there a universal cable to connect a Humminbird fish finder to a Motorguide trolling motor because Motorguide wants a Lowrance not Humminbird & Humminbird is compatable with MinnKota

I would use slip rings to tie existing cable to prop motor support shaft and mount transducer to motor housing. 'slip ring'--metal ring a little bigger than shaft with a nipple the size of the cable. OR call the bird at 1-800-633-1468 or www.humminbird.com/Category/Company/Contact-Us/ and use some southern/country slang when talking. Best of luck 'you all'.

SOURCE: Converting From 12/24 to Starght 24 Volt

if it is 24v. then you need to connect 2 battery in parallel. since the battery is only 12v.
if one battery is shoing red and the other is sohwing green, that means you are using 12v only, not the 24v.
connetion as follow:
positve of battery 1 to the motor, the negative of battery 1 to postive of battery 2. the negative of battery 2 to the motor.

SOURCE: Mounting a sonor/transducer on a MinnKota Riptide ST

Did the unit come with a strap to mount the transducer to a bow mount electric? Most units do... If not there is probably one available for the unit as an aftermarket accessory or accessory from the manufacturer... Regarding the transducer wire, just wrap and rout this up the front of the bow mount motor shaft so when you pull the motor up and secure it, it is not going to get in the way. You could cable tie the cord down near the bottom of the shaft and one up near the top where they wont interfere with the motor bracket when the motor is positioned up on the boat.

SOURCE: Replacement of motorguide trolling motor prop

Motor Guide hubs come in two different sizes - 3" and 3.5". The 3" size is more for older and lower thrust models. Newer units use the 3.5. The size differences are between manufacturers too. MinnKota's are a little bigger. If you order a new prop, the only issue may be the depth of the prop. I had to use a longer prop nut wrench to tighten the Hydrilla Hacker I purchased.

My motorguide x15 trolling motorjust wants to spin around .. it has a remote foot control


Define 'wants to spin around'?

The propeller motor is supposed to spin around :>)

If the whole motor unit is spinning around you need to clamp the motor stem.

For factory support, you can get that from the website.

Lot of interference with unit transducer mounted on trolling motor when trolling motor is being used. Then clears up when not used.


Some how you have Radio Interference conflicting with your unit. The RF as it is called, may be coming from the engine. Try to connect to an INDEPENDENT power supply for the Eagle and not the same source your trolling motor. You seem to be getting line interference.

sound like either voltage drop or hi resistance from cables... if you test 24v at the plug then resistance is the problem and may have to rewire to a 6ga wire to carry the load, pretty simple just hook the new cable to the old one and SLOWLY pull it thru, help may be required because you dont want to loose it half way.....hope this helps...GL

Trolling motor will not spin with out being turned by hand.


Take the prop off and make sure the pin that goes through the shaft is in place. The prop could also not be sitting on the pin proper.
