For serious fisherman, and serious Motorguide fans, we are excited to offer the Xi5 wireless trolling motor available with PinPoint GPS. The Xi5 Motorguide most advanced electric steer motor with a focus on technological innovation and design. The Xi5 offers a host of features including sophisticated steering transmission, well-lit status indicators, fully protected electronics, a low-profile mount, and a composite shaft.

The MotorGuide Xi5 includes wireless capability "right out of the box", enabling you to precisely control your motor from anywhere on the boat. A wireless foot pedal is standard with freshwater models and a hand-held remote is standard with saltwater models. The Xi5 is incredibly responsive and quiet due to its advanced steering system.

Xi5 105 FW Full Details
Medium to large freshwater v-hull, center console, pontoon and general fishing boats 20' or longer. The 105 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 6,500lbs. 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
The Xi5 series is a step-up from the previous MotorGuide Wireless line of motors. The Xi5 is exclusively equipped with MotorGuide's most advanced steering technology that provides much faster and more responsive steering that's also a lot quieter. While previous MotorGuide models offered the ability to wirelessly control the motor, the Xi5 is available with GPS which can control and position your boat automatically. The Xi5 is available with thrust options of 55, 80 and 105 lbs along with models designed for saltwater use.
Xi5 105 FW models are available with shaft lengths of 54", 60" and 72". For help selecting a shaft length, please see our shaft guide.

The Xi5 includes 8 different mounting options including mounting compatibility for a variety of older MotorGuide installations as well as select competitive models. This motor is bolted directly to the bow of the boat using the included mounting hardware, and requires drilling into the boat for installation. Ideally, it's best to have access to the underside of the mounting platform in order to secure and fasten the bolting hardware. However, if accessing the underside is impossible you can use no access bolts to secure the motor from the top. For more information see our compatibility and mounting guides.
Xi5 105 FW can be wired directly to the batteries, and can also be used in conjunction with a plug and receptacle for a cleaner, more professional installation that's easy to remove. To protect your motor from damage, a circuit breaker is also recommended but is not required for installation.

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
- 4.8 Hours: Approx. run time with throttle 50% open
- 2.4 Hours: Approx. run time with the motor at full throttle
Stow and Deploy Method:
Xi5's Deploy-Assist lever makes it easy to deploy the motor by squeezing a lever, raising the shaft and deploying it into the water. When not in use, the shaft and head can be quickly removed from the water and laid on the deck for storage.
Motor Steering Method:
If equipped with Motorguide's Pinpoint GPS, you can operate the motor via the handheld wireless remote or wireless foot pedal (which also includes some GPS functions).
If not equipped with PinPoint GPS, the motor is steered via the standard wireless foot pedal which controls motor speed and direction.
An adjustable depth collar makes it easy to set how deep the shaft and propeller sit in the water.
All MotorGuide Xi5 motors have a variable speed motor. Learn more about fixed vs. variable speed motors.
MotorGuide motors carry a 2 year warranty against manufacture defects and is supported by hundreds of local MotorGuide service centers across the country.
