    You probably need the latest software update. It can only be done with a PC that has a serial port. USB Converters will not work. The update has to do with the PRN32 Satellite.

2011 seadoo boat 150 speedster surging up and down on full throutle but idles fine in neutral and changed the plugs and new gas and tps sensor and still no differnce


Check for air leaks on the manifold, or fuel air locks, fuel starvation. Tank vent, kinked pipes, that sort of thing.

There is further help in the link.

This is caused by minor cavitation. It is not an actual issue. What is happening is that your impeller is moving fast enough that it's drawing out the available supply of water since the boat is moving slowly and there isn't enough pressure on the bottom of the boat the keep the jet pump fed with the amount of water you're expelling out the nozzle. Water is fed into the tunnel in the transom by the pressure caused by forward motion at speed.

Every jet boat will probably do it at a certain RPM depending on many different factors even down to water temperature, fresh/salt water etc.

For the longevity of your wear ring and impeller...avoid that rpm.

My IPad worked well with Navionics untill few days ago, then following problem appeared: when running my boat with trolling speed ( like 2 mph) the screen shows my position on map with the red arrow and...


Go into Settings - Navionics App and make sure that Mobile Data is enabled and also Background App Refresh. Finally, Location set to Always. It sounds like it is not being updated, but just setting your position on opening.

It is not a particularly good app and very basic although I have not tried the Paid version. I have a Humminbird 998 HD Side Imaging and the Navionics Mappind SD Card which gives much better results.

What is powerboating?


From Wikipedia: Power boating describes activities performed in a motorized boat. Generally, a power boat has a high power-to-weight ratio and a hull design that allows for easy planing, which allows for higher speed and improved handling. Also, the shape of the actual boat is usually very streamlined, which minimizes air resistance and drag, therefore increasing speed. Power boats are often used recreationally, includingwaterskiing and wakeboarding.

Powerboating appeared as an event in the 1908 Olympics.

The GPS component of my Lowrance Elite-5 Gold is malfunctioning about 50% of the time.


Hey Les, Since you have replace both the unit and transducer, you have eliminated/diagnosed most of your problem.. Its in the wiring... sometime when I am in full GPS mode I get erroneous depth readings..?? Have you tried a different GPS module (the "puck")?

Have idle surge, when you turn on ac it evens out, but doesnt seen to have much power.have changed throdle contol censerdid not make any difference, .does not have idle air control vaule. any ideas?


when you turn on the AC- the idle evens out because the ecm instructs the Idle air motor to increase the airflow into the throttle body to maintain idle speed under the increased engine load. The idle air motor is defective on your car- it does the same function as a valve but is actually a small motor...

I installed a Raymarine compass sensor in a GRP sailing boat underneath the chart table at least 50 cm away from metal and magnets. It is connected to a SP X-5 computer unit and a ST6002 autopilot...


If I were troubleshooting this, I'd manually adjust the orientation of the compass sensor until it matched the true heading. Once that was done, I'd move it side to side to ensure it's changing in the correct directions. If not, the unit could be upside down. Let me know how this turns out.

Black screen


If it is connected to the boat motor check the voltage that is coming from the engine and clean the battery post. This solved the screen flickering.

If you don't want to do that just call Northstar customer support and see what they suggest.
Phone (Toll-free) 1-800-628-4487 or (Direct) 603-324-2042
That will get you better support.

I got new pioneer gps would like to help me to


usually the Ground Speed, is shown regardless as a function of useage of the GPS, It normally automatically shows, direction, ground speed, altitude, & time. Unless, there is an actual sensor input, on the unit, and the car has a similar output, then i do not think you can do what you want?
