Anybody know if the 2019 models need the connext battery fix, or did the factory correct that problem, finally?

The battery voltage display fix, I mean.

Didn’t the older models read the same battery voltage for both displays in connext, or something like that.

Assuming I'm remembering the right issue, I have that on my list of things to run through with the dealer before I pick up mine. I'll be stopping out there this week or next to drop off my MC numbers as well as a stoltz bow roller and will mention it then. Maybe they'll have a 2019 without the shipping cover on it that I can see/test firsthand. Mine is under cover until they bring it in to do the pump out head install and various prep. If the factory didn't fix it, I'll expect that they will. No point in having dual voltage readouts if they're both reading only house (OR only starter for that matter). Will definitely report back assuming no one else has confirmed before.

Awesome, thanks! Yes, that’s the issue I was thinking of. And @Mainah diagnosed the fix, if I remember right.

If in doubt I would disconnect a battery and see if you still get a reading (other than zero/error) on the Connext screen (if you get the reading for both batteries with one disconnected - you will know it can;t be right).

It used to show the same (aux?) voltage for both batteries.

Presumably, it's been fixed already for 2018s, but I'm not sure about it.

Stopped out at the dealer today, but the only 2019s that were out from under the shipping covers were apparently at the latest boat show, so I wasn't able to test firsthand today unfortunately. I will for sure either have them check it when they bring my boat in for install/prep before I pick it up, or I will check it myself before I bring it to my marina. Either way, I should have an answer in the next few weeks if no one else does.

Asked the service folks about the issue and they weren't familiar with it and "hadn't gotten anything from Yamaha on it". :rolleyes:
Of course they'll be familiar with it soon if I find it on mine!

My 2019 shows both the house and starter battery voltage correctly.

My 2018 shows the same voltage. I've been aware of this, but it hasn't been a top project for me.

If in doubt I would disconnect a battery and see if you still get a reading (other than zero/error) on the Connext screen (if you get the reading for both batteries with one disconnected - you will know it can;t be right).

Fingers crossed they've taken care of this issue across the board then for 2019 forward! I'll be picking mine up on 4/12 if the weather is reasonable, otherwise will have to adjust the date slightly.. Will be one of the first things I check!

Just picked up my 2019 today and it appears to be functioning correctly. Tested batteries with a multimeter and viewed the connext screen. The direct read was appx 12.5 house and 12.2 sys/starter, and the connext screen read 12.7 and 12.4. Not sure if the lower direct read had something to do with my multimeter or maybe something particular to the connext system, but at least the boat appears to be reading its batteries independently.
