Meet ProNav™ Angler. A smart, GPS-guided autopilot system that uses a smartphone or tablet to control your boat’s every move, so you don’t have to. Designed to let anglers focus on fishing, not fighting to keep their boats on course, the compact device connects to the shaft of your bowmount trolling motor in seconds and allows you to easily control a full suite of navigational functions directly from your smartphone or tablet, without the need for a costly chartplotting sonar unit.
Proven during extensive testing in all types of conditions, the ProNav Angler lets you create and modify routes both on and off the water from your mobile device, allowing you to chart and retrace productive courses along prime lies such as weedlines, drop-offs and other structural sweet spots using satellite imagery and other maps.
The ProNav™ Angler™ connects to your bow mounted trolling motor and is controlled from your smartphone or tablet.

Now you can Focus on Fishing.
The ProNav™ Angler offers a feature set unmatched by any single product on the market today, at a fraction of the cost and complexity of a professional level autopilot and navigation system. The Angler is designed specifically for fishing and is loaded with features that fishermen will appreciate.
When you’re trolling it’s super easy to create/adjust routes on the fly, too deep? Drag the points a bit shallower to get your route dialed in. Even in windy /tough conditions Pro-Nav does a great job keeping you on course. When you do hook a fish you can focus totally on getting it to the boat while Pro-Nav keeps you on course.
Casting or fly fishing from the boat is also a great application for Pro-Nav. Follow along a route slowly to cover lots of water, Anchor over structure when you’re on the spot and the best part is you spend more time fishing because Pro-Nav is taking care of the driving.
As with any new product there were a couple of bugs initially. Once in a while the calibration mode had to be ran twice or ‘re-ran if the motor was off a bit. This happened infrequently and most of the time operation was flawless.
The team at Pro-Nav is responsive to issues and an a simple app update is all that is needed to correct any bugs. App updates also add new features and ways to improve your fishing experience.
Bottom line is this is a great product that will improve your fishing.
