Power-Pole, best known for its popular transom-mount shallow-water anchors that deploy and retract at the push of a button, has introduced two new lines of bow-mount electric trolling motors featuring quiet operation, high efficiency, GPS guidance, wireless controls, virtual anchoring and more.
The Move lines include the PV series with a pivot mount and the ZR series with a scissor mount. Both are designed and built for saltwater or freshwater use and feature brushless electric propulsion motors custom-engineered to deliver power at significantly lower rpm than other motors. The result is 30 percent more thrust and 30 percent greater efficiency than industry-leading trolling motors, according to Power-Pole.
A lightweight yet super-strong titanium shaft on Move trolling motors carries a lifetime guarantee. What’s more, these motors offer advanced electronic technology, including built-in GPS navigation with features such as Anchor mode, which automatically maintains boat position, and Active Vector Heading navigation, something akin to autopilot for your trolling motor.
Move trolling motors incorporate a variety of user-friendly wireless controls for the steering motor, propulsion motor and feature activation. Controls include the ReelFeel foot pedal with a low-latency wireless haptic motor that provides the sensation of cable steering and the ability to put the foot pedal anywhere you like. There are also wireless foot buttons available to activate the Anchor mode and Active Vector Heading. Both are mountable anywhere.

In addition, there’s a wireless hybrid remote that will control the Move trolling motor and has the ability to deploy and retract one or both of a boat’s Power-Pole shallow-water anchors. It’s powered by a long-lasting rechargeable battery and has a dash-mountable charging cradle to keep it safe, accessible and always charged.
Boating anglers can also network the Move motors with a compatible Lowrance or Simrad multifunction display to control the trolling motor from these touchscreen units. In addition, the underside of the Move motor housing on the ZR series also has an option for a built-in plug-and-play HDI sonar transducer to display on a Lowrance MFD.
Power-Pole’s ProNav app can enable any mobile device to become a controller. Each new Move comes with one free year of ProNav app support.
A reinforced high-strength polymer propeller for Move trolling motors was engineered to maximize durability, thrust and efficiency while minimizing prop noise. Bass anglers will appreciate the weedless design that shreds its way through dense lake vegetation.
Move trolling motors offer the flexibility to work with 24- and 36-volt battery configurations. The PV series is available in 45-, 52-, 60- and 72-inch shaft lengths, while the ZR motors come in 45-, 52- and 60-inch versions. Both series are available in black or white and start at $4,999.99.
