Minn Kota Talon Stomp Switches
« on: April 24, 2021, 09:00:09 PM »
I recently installed a second Minn Kota Talon to my boat, giving me a pair of them now  (yes)

I have them paired with each other via Bluetooth, as well as pairing them with two hand-held remotes.

I had been using the standard wireless remotes to operate them. One is mounted at the console. The other is/was mounted on the bow, in the recessed trolling motor tray.

I was getting tired of having to bend over to operate the bow remote, especially if I had to use it while fighting a fish.

So, I decided to get a foot switch.

After doing some homework, I decided to get the Bluetooth Stomp Switches for the Talon/Raptor, not the triangular multi-switch.

I ordered them and got them from West Marine earlier this week.

The next day, I got them installed and paired up, so they operate both Talons at once.

Wow! I can't wait to use them on the water.

A simple double stomp on the Down button deploys both Talons effortlessly. And a single stomp on the Up button retracts them both.

This is going to be a huge upgrade for me

p.s. If you look closely, you can see where I had mounted the standard handheld remote in the recessed trolling motor foot pedal tray.

Good idea, I hadnít even considered one on each side.  When I had power poles mine were together.  Sometimes I would step on the wrong one.  A time ot two a rod handle would wind up on a switch and deploy them.
If you're too busy to go fishing you're too busy!!

I like it with them on opposite sides of the tray. Makes it easier to hit them, since there's plenty of room for my foot.

Also, the down switch requires a firm double press to deploy it, so the chances of accidentally activating it are very, very slim.

Now, if the weather will cooperate, I will actually get a chance to get out there and use all of this new equipment 🙄
