Lowrance and trolling motor manufacturer MotorGuide signed a new agreement in which the brands will collaborate on sonar capability and plotter integration.

“We’re excited to continue our longstanding relationship with Lowrance,” Kevin Read, MotorGuide senior product manager, said in a statement. “Both our new Tour and Xi series motors will continue to offer Lowrance sonar and chart plotter integration to help you make the most of your time on the water.”

MotorGuide uses transducers that are compatible with Lowrance and other sonar brands. Its motors with integrated Pinpoint GPS can connect to Lowrance, Simrad and Mercury Vessel View displays.

“We believe that the best way to serve our customer is by giving them options,” Lucas Steward, Lowrance product line director, said in the statement. “We’re happy to continue our partnership with MotorGuide and offer seamless connectivity with Lowrance displays and MotorGuide trolling motors.”
