    I have a Minn Kota PowerDrive that the shaft will turn by the foot pedal but the on off switch below the left and right controls will not turn on the motor. The last few days the motor would work sometimes by using the on switch and selecting the speed but it would just shut off randomly... then if I turned the switch off then on sometimes it would work again. Now it won't turn on at all... I have gone through and checked all the conections and there are no issues there....does anyone know if it is just the foot pedal and if replaced that would solve the problem or is there something else? I dont want to buy a new foot pedal if its something else. Any help would be awesome!

Mine did the same thing and i think that it could be the relay under the switch cause i had power when i directly touched both neg. and pos. so i would diffently take a look at that.

I have the same problem with a 765mx 36 thrust. I am going to check the power going to the motor with a meter. I think it may be the PC board has gone bad. I will write back with my findings

    Solved my problem, it was the main PC board that controlls the unit. I had it replaced for $147.00 Dollars. Fish Lectronics in Pequot Lakes, MN. The owner Jim Wentworth fixed it in about 15 minutes replacing the board. (218) 568-4806. Wentworth is the Trolling motor/Marine electronics guru in the Brainard Lakes area.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.

In the Nuvi 1300 Bluetooth controls can be found in Tools - Settings - Bluetooth.

In this screen the Bluetooth communication mode can be switched on/off by pressing on the Bluetooth menu entry. Press Off and Save to store this setting.

Also existing (paired) connections with a cellphone can be dropped by pressing the phone menu entry and press the delete button.

Screen comes up with updating bluetooth firmware & stays at 45%.


Your unit if locatiing a cell phone close by, could be yours or a friends in the car, on standing near you.

I would disable Bluetooth first, to do that go to Tools...Settings.... Bluetooth.... under Bluetooth disable then re-do your Bluetooth connection

Tools....Settings... Bluetooth .. under Connection you can remove the connection there also

If you don't have a Bluetooth connection you want to use just disable it

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
