}}I just took delivery of a 2005 X2 and I'm trying to dial in the built in Cruise Control. Its not from Perfect Pass, its Mastercraft's version that comes standard with their throttle by wire MCX motor. Two main problems:

First, every time you turn off the motor the cruise goes off and you have to turn it back on when you start the motor.

Second, it takes a long time for the speed to settle at the desired MPH. For example, it accelerates to 26 MPH then takes 15 seconds to wind down to 22 MPH where its set. Even after the boat gets to riding speed, it seems to "hunt" for the right speed... essentially, very slow reaction time.

Any Suggestions?

In my opinion if you have your cruise set at 22, then you shouldn't go beyond that when you are pulling a rider up. If you feel the need to hammer the throttle out of the hole, then back way off when you get to around 15 mph. Then ease your way to 22 mph. You'll get to your desired riding speed much faster that way since you don't have to wait on the boat to figure it out.

Not sure what to tell you about it hunting after it settles at the desired speed. I had to do some adjusting on my PP, so I'm sure if you check out the MC manual it will list the steps for adjusting it.

All cruise/speed control will hunt if you overshoot the speed too much. I just tell the drivers to pull the throttle back to about the midpoint after the nose of the boat starts to drop, once on plane the boat will continue to accelerate until the appropriate boarding speed is reached without overshooting the speed by much.

The built in cruise is not perfect pass. It will hunt a little, and is meant for a little help by driver input, especially when cornering.
I have one coming next month, but I have a feeling I will be upgrading to PP before too long after that. I will let you know what I find.

Once the MC cruise locks in speed the throttle does nothing, you can't give it hand like you can with PP
