I had no idea this was possible (I have ipilot link /terrova/helix 10 g2n SI), but will check it out and see if I can activate the link this evening and get back. I had the latest updates as of around June, so dont yet know if it needs another update  for this feature?

Talked with a humminbird representative. He said that it has to be a bluetooth model of minnkota to get the virtual remote. So that sucks....

Yes it does. I know my helix 10 is bluetooth but dont thonk my minkota is. I would think there would be an upgrade available to enable bluetooth. If not they should get in this right away
