Charging the ProNav Motion Controller

-After completing the above, press and hold the Bluetooth Connection button until the blue light illuminates and flashes
-The blue light will turn solid once the Bluetooth connection to the ProNav GPS has been established
-Perform a function test to verify the motor responds to the remote
NOTE: We highly recommend performing a function test (prop on/off, thrust up/down, and turn right/left) on land with your motor safely deployed with no obstructions prior to hitting the water for the first time.
Disconnecting the ProNav Motion Controller from the ProNav Angler and Powering OFF
-To disconnect the controller from the GPS unit, press and hold the Mark button (topmost left) and Rabbit button (topmost right) simultaneously. Turning the device OFF will place it in a low power “sleep” state to maximize battery life when not in use.
–It is recommended to charge the ProNav Motion controller between uses to ensure it is fully charged for your next fishing trip.
ProNav Motion Controller Firmware Updates
-The ProNav Motion Controller is designed to allow users to update the device firmware as new features and functionality are added.
-ProNav will continue to develop and release new features and improvements for the ProNav Motion Controller. Additional updates will be OPTIONAL and available to all users. Periodic announcements will be provided to Pronav Motion Controller users providing details on additional updates available.
ProNav Motion Controller Calibration
- Your remote will require a calibration, similar to the ProNav Angler, to allow proper performance of the Motion Control functions.
- CALIBRATION NOTES: There is no need to calibrate the ProNav Angler GPS unit unless the Motion PointDrive functionality appears to be performing poorly (i.e. motor heading not following the pointed heading). Calibration of the remote does not need to be repeated after the initial calibration unless it is performing poorly or has lost power (battery fully discharged). The remote will automatically and continuously calibrate itself during use.
- To calibrate your controller, refer to the instructions provided in the following video:
- To verify the Motion functionality has been enabled, press the Compass Heading Lock and then point the Motion controller and press and release the Drive (green) button. The motor should respond by pointing in the heading that you pointed using the controller.
- PointDrive and PointJog Motion features are enabled for the GPS Anchor, Compass Heading Lock and GPS Vector Lock modes ONLY.
ProNav Motion Operation Overview
The following video provides a brief operation overview of the ProNav Motion handheld controller.
ProNav Motion Network Configuration
All ProNav Motion users must complete a network configuration. This process uniquely pairs the ProNav Motion remote to the ProNav Angler GPS unit that it will be used with. The following video provides a step-by-step overview of this process. Once the network configuration has been completed, this step should not need to be repeated with every use of the ProNav Motion but only if the remote is failing to establish a connection with the GPS unit or SmartSync Connection Hub (see ProNav SmartSync Connection Hub Configuration section below for more information if you have the Connection Hub).
ProNav Motion November 2019 Firmware Update
New firmware is available for the ProNav Motion Controller! Recent customers may already have this latest firmware on their device. Take note of the video below for additional details.
ProNav SmartSync Connection Hub Configuration
The following steps and instructions are specific to customers that currently use the ProNav Motion Controller with a ProNav GPS unit having a serial number beginning with either a number (i.e. 605) or the letter “A” (i.e. A7058). Customers having a GPS unit with a serial number beginning with the letter “B” (i.e. B0186) will NOT have a SmartSync Connection Hub and can refer to the Network Configuration information above.
Note: There may be some minor differences in the following process from Android to iOS.
1) Install ProNav SmartSync Connection Hub hardware.
a. Disconnect the power cord from the ProNav control unit and connect the Connection Hub directly in line between the control unit and power cord.
b. If disconnected, reconnect ProNav GPS unit to Control Unit and verify power is reaching the GPS unit by looking for an illuminated ProNav diamond on top of the GPS unit.
c. NOTE—Position the SmartSync Connection Hub in a location where there is a clear line of sight between the antenna and your ProNav Angler GPS unit (as shown in the image below).
2) Connect ProNav mobile app to connection hub and pair your ProNav Angler GPS unit.
a. From the ProNav app, connect to the “ProNav Hub” via the “Connect” button in the bottom left corner of the app home screen. DO NOT CONNECT TO YOUR PRONAV GPS (“PRONAV SERIAL NUMBER”).
b. From the ProNav app main menu, select “Network Settings” and verify message states “Connected to: Connection Hub”.
c. Select “Add Your ProNav Device” and choose your device i.e. “ProNav Serial Number” from the list.
d. Verify under “ProNav Device Setup” your ProNav device appears i.e. “ProNav Serial Number”.
3) Pair ProNav Motion Controller to connection hub.
NOTE—If you received a NEW ProNav Angler GPS unit after August 1st, 2019, your unit has the SmartSync Connection Hub technology fully integrated. Simply connect from the ProNav mobile app to “ProNav Central” and proceed with the following steps to pair your remote.
a. From the ProNav app main menu, select “Network Settings”.
b. Turn on your ProNav Motion Controller by pressing and holding the Bluetooth button on the remote for about 5 seconds.
c. Select “Add Your ProNav Remote”. “ProNav Remote” should appear in the “Connect to a Device” list. Select “ProNav Remote” from the list. If “ProNav Remote” does not appear, press and hold the Bluetooth button on the remote again for about 5 seconds and repeat Step C.
i. NOTE—Android devices will require you to set a new remote name.
d. Verify under “ProNav Remote Setup” your ProNav remote appears i.e. “ProNav Remote ”.
