ProNav Marine Ushers In New Era

Houghton, MI – April 22, 2015 - MTEC is proud to share that ProNav Marine has just released their new product, the ProNav Angler. The ProNav Angler is a patent-pending GPS autopilot system that connects to your bow-mounted trolling motor and is controlled from your smartphone or tablet.


ProNav, the Upper Peninsula’s new marine products company began their journey in MTEC SmartZone’s SmartStart entrepreneur coaching program. After receiving mentoring, advising, and coaching on the entrepreneurial process they graduated into MTEC’s start-up incubator space, and continued to grow and develop their product. MTEC is proud of the hard work and determination demonstrated by the ProNav team and we are excited about their new product, and opportunities in our local community.
The revolutionary new ProNav Angler™ GPS-guided autopilot system from ProNav Marine™ offers high- performance boat control at an affordable price.


Designed to let anglers focus on fishing, not fighting to keep their boats on course, the compact, high-tech device connects to the shaft of your bowmount trolling motor in seconds and allows you to control speed and a full suite of navigational functions directly from your smartphone or tablet.


Coupling GPS data with the feature-rich ProNav mobile app, the patent-pending system lets you lock onto anchor point coordinates and hold the boat in position regardless of wind, waves or current. When it’s time to motor to another hotspot or distant landmark, the ProNav Angler Vector keeps your boat tracking in a straight line, automatically correcting for drift caused by the above-mentioned forces of nature.


The ProNav Angler also lets you create and modify unlimited routes both on and off the water from your mobile device or computer, allowing you to chart and retrace productive courses along prime lies such as weedlines, drop-offs and other structural sweet spots. Routes can be recorded and securely stored in the ProNav Cloud, which allows infinite access from the devices of your choice—enabling you to toggle between phones and tables, or even share information with trusted friends.


As a bonus, because it’s easy to move the ProNav control unit from one trolling motor to another, you can use your system on multiple boats, all at a fraction of the cost of competitive autopilot and navigational systems.


The ProNav Angler is compatible with Minn Kota PowerDrive V2 systems and Android devices, with additional motor choices and IOS compatibility coming soon. While the official product launch is set for late 2015, ProNav is offering a limited number of units for sale to beta users at pronavmarine.com for $699. Early users will enjoy upgrades and enhancements, along with an unconditional, money-back satisfaction guarantee. For details, visit the site or call (715) 575-9370.
