That has not been the case for me. I replaced my paddle wheel with a depth finder since Stargazer no longer takes any signal (other than water temp) from the paddle wheel. No issues. Pulled a high level trick skier recently, and he had no complaints whatsoever with the pull in trick mode, which was taking speed solely from GPS.
This was not in a river current, however.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
