No. Minn Kota recommends connecting your Talon shallow water anchor to the starting/cranking battery of your boat.

Yes, Talon has an in-line 30A blade style fuse. These can be purchased at any automotive parts store.

This will vary from one boat to the next. It is important to check for proper steering and trimming clearances when laying out your installation. See the Talon installation guide for detailed instructions or the Talon adapter bracket selection guide.

Some boats have irregular shaped transoms and the standard Talon quick release mounting bracket cannot be mounted directly to the transom. In other cases there are other accessories such as trim tabs, transducers, poling platforms, etc., that may require additional clearance. Use the Minn Kota Talon adapter bracket selection guide to select the proper application for your boat.

Yes. But the user must be aware that Minn Kota recommends a minimum of 4″ up from the bottom of the hull line to minimise spray. Dragging the Talon through the water while underway could cause damage to the Talon and/or transom of your boat.

In the case where your Talon does not stow or deploy, we recommend referring to the trouble shooting section of your owners’ manual.
