Default Motor Guide or Minn Kota for Garmin GPSMAP 942XS

I know there are a ton of these threads about which is better but they don't touch on my actual question.....
Does anyone know if one brand is better paired with the Garmin GPSMAP 942XS?
I know Simrad works well with Motorguide and Hummingbird works with the MinnKota I-pilot Link system, but I can find any good information about Garmin. The Garmin Force doesn't have a 72" shaft so that is off the table.

Thanks for any help.

I don't know about the pairing but I have owned/used both MinnKota and Motor Guide, and there is no comparison in design or quality. Get a MinnKota. For example, the Motor Guide hand-held control unit did not have a screen showing what the motor was doing, which was a terrible inconvenience. The MinnKota has better battery life, and the built-in GPS is much better.

Motor guide has GPS also if that's the model you want. Both are a crap shoot. Might last a while or might not. Toss rodan in the mix also
