In 2019, PerfectPass totally reimagined, redesigned and simplified the GPS Star Gazer Wake Edition for most Yamaha Sport Boats. The same engineering team that designed speed control systems used in Pro Ski and Wakeboard Events around the World once again set a new standard for jet boats with the industry’s smoothest pull in a more friendly user interface.

Driving a Yamaha Sport Boat for Wakeboarding and Surfing at a consistent speed is a stressful, near impossible task because any deviation in speed will negatively affect the Riders experience. Now any responsible operator can give a “perfect pull” so you and your family can enjoy your time on the water like never before.

  1. Q. Does Perfectpass draw power when the key is off?
  2. A. No, our high speed Garmin GPS do not require the boats battery for fast "lock".

  3. Q. Do I need a mechanic or dealer to install ?
  4. A. If you are mechanically inclined you can likely do it yourself. If you would tackle a stereo install, etc. then you will not have a problem. No wires to splice. See our install document HERE.

  5. Q. I note the system does not have an RPM Connection?
  6. A. There is no need for adding the complication of additional wiring, connectors and cost as pure GPS based control is what 99% of our customers require.

  7. Q. How long to install a system if I do it myself?
  8. A. Most people will take about 1.5 – 2 hours.

  9. Q. What is the difference between the round In Dash Display and the External Display?
  10. A. The LCD and functions are identical. The External Display with articulating mounting post gives you great flexibility for mounting location if you have a “Connext” Display screen.

  11. Q. What about safety in the event of a PerfectPass component failure?
  12. A. Our engineers have designed fail safe systems that met the standards of every major boat builder that installed our products over the last 20 + years. The Yamaha system is equally fail safe in design with the driver always in control of the throttles.

  13. Q. Does the Star Gazer have an engine “Sync” function?
  14. A. No. PerfectPass provides an extremely precise, identical control voltage into each engine which results in a very steady, similiar RPM output. PerfectPass does NOT attempt to “sync” the engines as it is not required for superb speed control at surf/wake speeds. (The tachometers on the boat should not be relied upon for accuracy based on our testing) It is quite normal to see one engine running at a higher RPM based on the boats tachometer. Engines significantly out of “sync” will pull the craft to one side, the rooster tails will not match and the engines will not sound right.

  15. Q. Why does the speed on the PerfectPass screen not match the boat speedometer?
  16. A. The boat speedometer is not accurate. The Star Gazer displayed speed is accurate to 1/10 mph.
