I am thinking about getting stargazer perfect pass and installing it myself. Thoughts on this system? Has anyone out there installed it themselves?

Install was pretty easy and took about 1.5 hrs or so. Works great. I had to experiment with my KDW setting some to get it to hold speed more consistently.

I installed mine when they very first came out and have used it now for many hours. It's easy to do and you don't disable anything if you stop part way. I like the system a great deal. I ordered mine with my manufacturers name on it which helps keep the 'stock' look.

I did it last year and it was REALLY easy. The directions were great and simple to follow. I don't recall even having to do any adjusting once we put it in the water. Just set it and go. Awesome product.

Thanks guys I don't have any free dial spots so I am planning on changing out my factory speedo for the PP dial. I was told that they make dials to fit most port sizes?

The perfect pass instructions are very clear, and the system is easy to hook up. That being said, my install took a while (4 hours). Getting my dash apart to get a speedo out was tedious on my boat. The time was well worth it.

My initial install took about 3 hours and then another hour and a half later on in the summer when we realized it wasn't installed correctly. They sent one instruction book with another two pages of supplemental instructions for my 04 black scorpion. They had the throttle cable hooked up differently in two pictures. We chose the wrong one and it was getting bound up. After we redid that we also had to move the throttle cable lower on the bracket (there were 4 or 5 possible screw holes and we had to pick the lowest) in order to get the pp servo cable to stop getting bound up on my engine cover. We also had to modify some of the hardware (cutting some bolts shorter) to fit it in there. I think the issue is that the servo cable was way too long and the linkage mechanism didn't quite fit right.

Once we got it sorted, we totally love it!

Very easy install, only takes a couple hours if you're taking your time. Mine was the paddlewheel version, since I ride where there's fast and changing currents. GPS should be faster and easier since no measuring or drilling. Hands down the best upgrade I did to my boat, no idea how I ever did without it.

I have an 05 supreme 232 with the black scorpian 330 horse. Hopefully I won't have to do any modifications.

As far a the guages go, they'll ask you what boat you have and they'll get the guages that match. My boat is 12 years old and the guages match perfectly.

wait wait wait...

you have a wakeboat WITHOUT speed control, and you are still married? Your wife must have excellent throttle control or you are the most patient person alive...

I had it installed in my I/O and it made a world of difference. It was pretty accurate and held speed within .20 mph +- I def. recommend it. Had to play with the KDW a little to get it dialed in but it was perfect before I sold it.

Question, :

I have perfectpass pro with the multi line display and an upgraded chip. I just found a deal on ebay for the gps puck. Do I need a different chip to make it work or can I just plug it in?
