Der NEUE MotorGuide Tour / Tour Pro Trolling Motor
« am: 11 Juli 2019, 20:41:22 »
MotorGuide hat den NEUEN Tour und Tour Pro Trolling Motor vorgestellt.

Hier die Pressemeldung:


Lowell, Mich. (July 9, 2019) – MotorGuide has announced the introduction
of two new revolutionary and industry-leading trolling motors today, Tour
and Tour Pro, at ICAST in Orlando.  Tour Pro is the very first true cable steer
motor with GPS anchor in the industry. “We are excited about the launch of
The Tour and Tour Pro,” said Kevin Read, MotorGuide senior product manager.

“MotorGuide has been on the water since 1947 and we can officially say with
these motors: The Tour is Back!  These motors have been redesigned from
prop to pedal to be the highest performing trolling motors on the market.”

Both Tour and Tour Pro are built for tough conditions with a full 360-degree breakaway
mount with integrated bounce buster and a rugged two-piece shaft with metal outer
column and composite inner shaft. In addition, both models include a no-flex metal
foot pedal that provides the most solid steering in the market.

Tour Pro models combine Pinpoint GPS, the most accurate GPS anchor available,
with traditional pull-pull stainless steel cables for smooth, responsive steering.

“Our new Tour Series will be the only trolling motors that offer the responsiveness and
durability of a true cable steer motor with all the benefits of GPS anchoring,” Read said.

“MotorGuide continues to make the most durable, reliable, and easy to use trolling
motors on the market so you can make the most of your time on the water.​”

The new motors will include MotorGuide’s Zero-G lift assist system, which requires
half of the effort compared to the competition, as well as the new Katana propeller
– a Mercury designed two-blade weedless prop that delivers more power
and up to 30% more battery efficiency than previous props.

Both models also offer options for MotorGuide’s new HD+ universal sonar with both traditional
2D views and high-definition down looking views compatible with most major fishfinder brands.

“We believe in giving our customers the freedom to connect to their fishfinder of choice,” Read said.
“Our new HD+ sonar technology will offer compatibility with all major sonar brands so you
aren’t limited to just one option.” In addition to sonar compatibility, Tour Pro models with
integrated PinPoint GPS also offer chartplotter integration for connecting to Lowrance,
Simrad and Mercury Vessel view displays for autopilot and navigation control.     

Tour and Tour Pro will be offered in 82 or 109-pound thrust models, at either 24 or 36 volts with 45-inch shafts. 
Tour and Tour Pro will be available for consumers to purchase by January 2020.

Einige Punkte heraus gelesen:
Laut MotorGuide ist es der erste echte Cable Steer mit GPS Anker Funktion.

Anders als bei den neuen Motoren der Mitbewerber Garmin / Lowrance
die eine Steer by Wire Funktionalität haben findet man beim MotorGuide
Tour eine echte Cable Steer Lösung, für diejenigen die das besser finden.

Es gibt auch keine 24/36Volt Kombi Motoren.
Wir konnten nicht heraus hören ob es sich auch bei MotorGuide um
einen Bürstenlosen Motor handelt oder ob er noch Bürsten hat.

Dafür bekommt man bei den Tour PRO etwas das bei den anderen fehlt, die
Möglichkeit den Motor an Echolot Geräten verschiedener Hersteller zu nutzen.
Genannt werden derzeit Raymarine, Garmin, Lowrance, Humminbird. Mittels
Kabel Adapter lässt sich der Motor leicht an unterschiedlichen Geräten betreiben.

Man braucht bei der Kombination MotorGuide Tour und Lowrance
auch kein Gatewaykabel mehr sondern kann den Motor direkt
über NMEA2K mit dem Echolot Gerät verbinden.

Die automatische Navigation über den Chartplotter scheint jedoch
nicht bei jedem Echolot Gerät zu funktionieren, hier werden nur
Lowrance, Simrad, Mercury Vessel view displays genannt.

Der von Mercury designte Propeller soll 30% mehr Batterie Effizienz bringen.
