I just purchased a 2019 Terrova 80 ipilot. I previously had a Motorguide Xi5. How loud is the steering suppose to be on these new Terrova? It is way louder than my Xi5 was. It even has a resonating gear type sound, like you can hear the teeth as it turns. It does not sound smooth. I used to have an old powerdrive and I don't remember that even being this loud. I cannot find any info online or video clips of how loud is normal. I don't know if I am being picky or if this is the way they are. I had it out once and I am annoyed by it already.
The prop motor on the Terrova is quieter than the Xi5. I am happy with that at least.
