I have read a lot on this forum about Perferct Pass and learned a ton, but want to make sure I am on the right track. Last weekend while boating, my Perfect Pass was reading way high, while the spedometer read 0mph. After a few minutes, both showed 0mph. Throughout the rest of the day both spedometer and PP read 0 mph, except for short moments when both worked fine. I have checked the paddle wheel and all looks and feels great. I sprayed with WD40 to make sure. I also checked the connections in the back and see nothing suspicious. I was going to check the wiring to the paddle wheel next. Anyone else had this issues?
Thanks in advance.

Yes. They said call my dealer because it probably has to do with paddle wheel or wiring. I am hoping someone else has had this issue.

Same thing happened to me. I took it into my dealer, and they said it was the paddle wheel. Got it home and....... it didn't work after they said they had replaced the paddle wheel. Im pretty sure its my connection, but don't have the time to take my dash apart to get to the pp. My pp works on rpms though. let me know how this works out for you please.

If it is the paddlewheel, if it is not covered by warranty, and if you don't ride on fast moving rivers, do youself a favor and get the Nauticlaugic GPS replacement for the paddlewheel. It will cost more... but it will be worth it.

^^X2... do a search on here for Nautic Laugic. Same thing happened to me and the GPS saved the day. I think it may even work better than a paddlewheel.

I am looking into Nautic Laugic, but would really like to get mine working. Checked the paddle wheel, again, and moves very easily. I also tested the servo, unplugged and cleaned all wires with perfect pass and just can not find the problem. When I get back out on the boat, I will follow the paddle wheel wiring all the way and make sure there are no kinks. This is baffling me, but I am about to throw in the towel.
