Terrova rf error

Post by Danoutdoors » Thu Sep 13 2018 08:12

Any one experienced this error before, first time out testing the motor and cant get it to work, did a bit of googling and it looks like it might be a proper problem, anyone got any ideas I would be super greatfull / I’ll get the drinks in 🤣

Have you tried Minn Kota direct
They do answer but take into account the time difference

Oh jeezus hope it doesn’t go that way, someone posted a account identical to mine on the net and it was the handset, unsure if to contact the people I bought it from or minn Kota themselves at the moment.. we shall see how it goes

I’ve had a live chat with minn Kota, It’s the handset apparently, need to contact the distributor and arrange for a replacement, fingers crossed it’s resolved quickly

Dan, I'm assuming RF stands for Radio Frequency. I have an older version Terrova with the first generation ipilot. On mine the handset has several frequency settings so that boats can run on different frequencies to avoid cross-controlling each others motors. Have you tried cycling through the frequencies as it might just be that the motor and handset are not frequency aligned.

Like radio gear for model aircraft type thing, how would I do that Andrew? It won’t let me explore the menu etc before it switches off or is it something manual internally?
I have it working via my phone and blue tooth at the moment so all is not completely lost

I can't remember off the top of my head. I could also be mixing it up with the co-pilot remote I had before getting the ipilot??? I'm sure a look in the manual or a google around will shed some light.

Congratulations on the little one Dan, hope everyone is OK.
I could probably get you a good price for the iPilot now that you are not likely to be using it anymore :woot: :laughs: :laughs: .
