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.
