This is the MotorGuide 8M0092085 NMEA 2000 cable that provides GPS guided operation on your MotorGuide Xi3 ot Xi5 trolling motor.
You also need a Lowrance Fishfinder that supports the MotorGuide integration. Specifically, this would only include the HDS series.
With the installation of this cable with an NMEA network between your Lowrance fish finder, and the MotorGuide Xi3 or Xi5 trolling motor, you will be able to have the fish finder auto pilot the trolling motor, using courses that you pre-plot on the Lowrance chart.
Here is a video demonstrating this working on a Lowrance HDS Gen 3 fish finder:
This cable is made by MotorGuide, since there is proprietary electrical components that they manufacture that are needed for the GPS guidance function. This cable is MotorGuide PN 8M0092085.
There is an NMEA Tee that is included with this cable.
These cables come with a two year free, no questions asked replacement warranty. See our warranty terms section on our website for details.
