Minn-Kota I-pilot remote batteries

CR2450N is the battery you will need to replace the battery in the Minn-Kota I-Pilot remote. The ones you can get at Wal-Mart CR2450 will not work. The battery must be on of the CR2450N. I learned this the hard way and hope to save one of you guys a fishing trip.
The manual says to use CR2450 coin cell battery. It also says: *NOTE: Panasonic brand batteries will not work with the i-Pilot remote.
This is on page 32 of manual.

The battery is a Renata(Brand) and here is a link to purchase. By them before yours goes out.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
