That's exactly why it's awesome. My wife couldn't understand why I was always telling her to speed up then moments later to slow down. Jet boats don't deliver a constant speed at a given rpm. Therefore everytime she would throttle back, the boat would lose plane and slow to under 9 mph. Then when she would throttle up, the boat would come back on plane and speed up to 30 mph. I will say that it was a thrill ride, but not a fun wakeboard outing.Thanks Bruce! I think Perfect Pass would allow me to spend some time behind the boat instead of driving it. Really excited about the group buy.
I figured the stock gagues operate normally. But PP has an rpm mode. My question is if the rpm mode in PP monitors/displays and adjusts both motors. In other words, can PP control both motors by rpm rather than velicity/gps measurements.
In our boats, it may not monitor rpm at all. When I looked at the install manual, I didn't see anything describing wiring the unit to get a feed for rpm. Maybe I missed it? Perhaps a call to PP? Or a jet boater with one installed can chime in?Ah hah. interesting. I just figured it was a speedo only gauge... learning something new here.
@itsdgmIt does monitor RPMs as well. But only on one tach. It then mirrors both controls the same. I believe that the rpm mode will hold a given rpm and not a set speed. But I'm not 100% sure. I've never had need for that.
Awesome! Thanks!I'm pretty sure that's what the rpm mode will do for you. I've never made a long haul like that in the Yamaha though. To be 100% sure you could contact Perfect Pass. Their customer service is amazing
I have their phone number as (902) 468-2150 I had a few quick questions during install and Dan walked me through it like he was sitting right next to me. They really know their product.
With all the mods I've done to the boat (VHF radio, amps and sub, chart plotter, underwater LEDs) it would be REALLY pricey!!!
