Voted Best of Show among New Products at the 2019 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, or ICAST

It’s currently a freshwater-only product, but the newly released Garmin Force Trolling Motor is an impressive piece of innovation. It features a quiet, powerful, brushless motor that greatly minimizes the vibration which causes some electrics to interfere with sonar returns. The motor has a built-in transducer to render Garmin CHIRP tradition and Ultra HD ClearVu and SideVu scanning sonar. The motor also has an integrated heading sensor, enabling it to it hold a precise position without drifting off the GPS mark. Wireless connectivity to the Garmin chartplotter and foot pedal make for clean installation. The wireless remote offers all the usual features you’d expect, plus something we’ve not seen before: point-and-go gesture steering. Available in 50- and 57-inch shaft models for $3,099.99 and $3,199.99, respectively. See www.garmin.com/force
