If the Ultrex is the iLink model, then you will need an iLink capable LakeMaster mapping product for Follow the Contour (LakeMaster regional, Chart Select, AutoChart PC created mapping, AutoChart Live)  ...

There no question the Ultrex is the finest thing since the first trolling motor on earth ;D Love everything.  The only problem I have :-* I the front 1199 is almost usless except for GPS. When Ultrex on the you can not see the bottom in DI and All Snow on the 2D.  Never had the problem with the the Fortrex 112 I took off the boat. Yes some minor on High Speed.  Love the Ultrex but got to the the snow off the screen.  Front 1199 is totally useless with trolling motor ingauged and running.  That Sucks ::)

Well the boy's at The Great Outdoors got it healed ;) two of the best worked on it 4 hours, put on new SI/DI ext transducer :o, updated the software ;D which I don't do as much as I should due to if it's working right don't fix something that's not broke :D :D :D, check all grounds from inside the motor, to the top, back to the rear cranking battery.  They did not feel it was fixed, nor did I.  Humminbird Tech told em it's got to be in the lake to test.  Well big cigar to him, once back on the lake it's 100% spot on, zero snow or lines even on #10 speed. All the line gone when the pedal was moved even with motor not running. Big Hand to "The Great Outdoors" service crew  ;D ;D that's I buy most of my mess from them and they service what the sell.
