The Garmin Force™ Trolling Motor with the 50" shaft is upping the ante with a seemingly endless feature set, cutting edge technology and a rugged design that looks almost sinister...in a good way.
The Force™ is Garmin's offering for anglers who want that "old-school" cable steer feel and responsiveness coupled the latest GPS, sonar and networking technologies.
Garmin has not only been able incorporate traditional, cable steer feel into the Force; they've managed to do it without any cables at all...yup it's wireless.
But the Force™ is no one-trick pony by any stretch of the imagination.
First of all, you can run the Force in either 36v (producing 100lbs of thrust) or 24v (producing 80lbs of thrust).
Housed in the vault-like chassis, Garmin has integrated their latest sonar technology into their new trolling motor. These imaging technologies include integrated traditional CHIRP sonar along with High Definition imaging such as their ClearVU and SideVU scanning sonar. It even has the capability to accommodate Garmin's Livescope Panoptix transducers.
Of course, a motor of this caliber and price (starting at $3,000) has many of the GPS features that Minn Kota's i-Pilot system turned into "must-haves" - including anchor lock, auto-pilot, jog feature and more. All of these features can be controlled via the wireless foot pedal or full color remote (with gesture control)
This model comes standard with: 50" shaft, a configurable 24v/36v motor with 80lbs and 100lbs of thrust respectively, Wireless foot pedal, full color floatable remote, high efficiency brushless motor, integrated high definition sonar, wireless chartplotter connectivity, gas-piston lift assist, and coiled spring shaft guard.
Force Trolling Motor - 50" Full Details
Medium to large freshwater or saltwater boats. In particular bass boats, v-hull, Carolina skiffs and general fishing boats up to 23'. The 24/36 volt motor with 80lb or 100lb thrust is recommended for boats weighing up to 7,000lbs. For more help picking the right thrust level - or to learn how much your boat weighs - please refer to our thrust guide.
How It's Unique
Building on the success of Minn Kota's Ultrex, the Garmin Force™ is designed for serious anglers who prefer a traditional cable steer feel along with GPS capabilities such as anchor lock, autopilot etc.. As opposed to the Ultrex, The Force only has one model option - fully loaded - with every feature. This is why the price points starts at $3,099.99 for the 50" and $3,199.99 for the 57" shaft.
It has several unique technologies including a wireless foot pedal, 2 available voltage configurations for 80lb or 100lb of thrust, full color remote with gesture controls, brushless motor, integrated Garmin CHIRP with high definition ClearVu and SideVu and wireless chartplotter connectivity. It's incredibly rugged chassis is also notable...so is its weight of roughly 80lbs.

Motor Run Time:
Important Note: As you likely won't be running your trolling motor perpetually, the actual amount of on-the-water time a motor should allow will be substantially longer than times listed. Actual motor run time can vary depending on conditions (winds, waves, etc) and the type of battery used. Listed below are run-time estimates assuming a 100 amp hour rated battery. To learn more, please see our article on calculating motor run time.
- 20+ Hours: At slow, trolling speeds that draw 5 amps or less
- 3.6 Hours: Approx. run time with throttle 50% open
- 1.8 Hours: Approx. run time with the motor at full throttle
Stow and Deploy Method:
The Garmin Force features nitrogen charged gas spring lift mechanism that makes it incredibly easy to stow and deploy. This design is very similar to the lift-assist system on motors such as the Ultrex and Fortrex motors from Minn Kota.
Motor Steering Method:
The motor is steered via the the Force wireless Foot Pedal and/or handheld remote both of which can control motor speed and direction, along with GPS features and chartplotter connectivity functionality.
An adjustable depth collar makes it easy to set how deep the shaft and propeller sit in the water.
The Force motors has a brushless variable speed motor. Learn more about fixed vs. variable speed motors.
The motor's composite shaft caries a lifetime guarantee. If it's ever broken - regardless of the circumstances - Garmin will replace it at no charge. The rest of the motor caries a three year warranty.
