For serious fisherman, and serious Motorguide fans, we are excited to offer the new Xi5 wireless trolling motor. The Xi5 represents a big step in the right direction for Motorguide and points to their renewed focus on technological innovation and design. The Xi5 offers a host of new features including sophisticated steering transmission, well-lit status indicators, fully protected electronics, a low-profile mount, and a composite shaft. It's engineered to be reliable and long-lasting.
The new 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 new Xi5 also runs smooth and extremely quiet. Order it with Pinpoint GPS, MotorGuide's answer to Minn Kota's i-Pilot, and experience the benefits of virtual anchoring, route recording and autopilot/cruise control. See below for additional product details.
Xi5 105 FW Full Details
Large freshwater v-hull, center console, pontoon and general fishing boats 25' or longer. The 105 lbs thrust motor is recommended for boats weighing up to 5,500lbs. 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 MotorGuide Wireless line of motors. While both models can be controlled wirelessly, only the Xi5 line offers the ability to use a GPS to control and position your boat. Additionally, the Xi5 is available with thrust options of 55, 80 and 105 lbs and in saltwater specific models.
If you're looking for something different, we recommend the Wireless series trolling motor for fishermen who need a value-priced motor that can be controlled wirelessly. The Wireless series motors are available in 45, 55 and 75 lb thrust levels.
Shaft lengths of 45", 54" and 60" are available for Xi5 motors. For help selecting a shaft length, please see our shaft guide.

The Xi5 includes 8 different mounting options enabling reverse mounting compatibility with older MotorGuide installations as well as 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.

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:
The motor is steered via the included wireless foot pedal which controls motor speed and direction. If the Motorguide GPS wireless remote is purchased, you can control the motor with the handheld unit.
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.

Skeeter ZX250 21 ft bass boat
The MotorGuide Xi5 105 FW - 60'' / Pinpoint GPS and Sonar / Wireless Foot Pedal and GPS Remote / 36v is the best trolling motor I have ever owned. This is my second purchase from TrollingMotors.net, great to do business.
This trolling motor is one of the best investments I've made in my fishing. Boat control is huge, and this motor has made it 100% better. The pinpoint gps, and wireless controls are super responsive. No more cable steer for me. The anchor lock is awesome, I don't know why I didn't buy this motor sooner. Thank you motorguide, and thank you, trollingmotors.net, you're awesome service and super fast delivery are second to none.
Glad you are loving your new Xi5! Thanks for your business and for your praise, much appreciated.
This trolling motor practically makes my boat. I fish very deep waters and if I want to stop and jig, I use the anchor feature to position right over the school. Sure beats messing with hundreds of feet of anchor line. The wireless foot pedal and handheld remote are so responsive you would never guess there is no cable. I go back and forth between gas trolling motor and the Motorguide xi5 105 FW depending on conditions and speed but sure enjoy the quietness of the xi5. Trolling motors.net was great to work with and everything arrived on time. I won't subtract points from motor due to packaging but Motorguide could spend a couple more bucks on packaging to prevent cosmetic flaws (foam, etc.) Mine had a small ding in housing but I talked to Trollingmotors.net and decided to go fishing rather than worry about it. Glad I did! No issues at all with the motor. I made the right choice going 36 volt. My boat is 22' plus 2 feet extended transom. This motor would get me back to port if I ever need it to.
