One remote or 2

For those of you with dual power poles do you go with one programmed remote for both poles or do you have a remote for each power pole.

I just picked up my new boat which has 2 power poles. The boat builder did not program the remotes so they each work independent of each other. I was thinking of leaving them as is so I don't deploy both power poles at the same time.

What say you all

Sync them both. The advantage of having two is the ability to stop the boat from spinning. When I pull up to a spot I like pulling right up and being set. If poling, it keeps you in the same direction you were heading so you don’t have to spin around and get back on course. Sometimes that’s the difference between plucking another fish out of a flat and it swimming off

My sons 25 Pathy has dual power poles.. he has switches on the dash, and also the upper control station, plus a single remote.. the dash switches, upper control station switches operate the pole independantly, but he has only 1 remote and I think it deploys both poles at the same time..
He has another remote to operate the trolling motor, and a 3rd hanging around his neck no idea what the 3rd remote does.

The foot switches work great if you have too many remotes
