If it is attempting to accelerate with isn't giving enough power it is probably a easy(ish) calibration fix. Might just be that the settings to increase and lower power aren't high enough to counter the loss of speed in the turn. You won't see that issue during acceleration since the power is at 100% until you start getting close to target(or past target...I don't know the ZO acceleration logic ).
If you hear the boat RPM try and push the speed up in the turn cut harder and try and dump more speed. the system should try harder to hit target and really pile on the throttle... I don't think ZO displays the amount of power it is attempting to use does it? like a 0-100?

Strange.

Usually ZO will give everything to maintain speed, it has no idea if you are turning or not. Speed is speed unless you are in RPM mode which you are not.

At a loss with this one. Only time I have seen something similar is if the ZO control is not given full throttle range.

Keep us posted, more than curious what you find.

Thats kinda what I've heard. thats why i'm thinking a calibration issue. but if the system was't given the full range wouldn't you have a loose cable that can't reach full throttle since the system is limited? or am I thinking to old school for a newer boat??

CrashCourse316,
These are drive by wire so unless a sensor/potentiometer is bad the ZO should just power thru.

I am a 3 event guy and for tight end of course turns the standard practice is to throttle back, make the turn, and then throttle up to the beep in advance of the course. If you make the mistake of leaving the throttle down the engine will do everything it can to maintain the 34/36 mph speed.

I think ZO has a diagnostic menu you can run to see if the system is okay while the boat is not running or in the water. Maybe Dan2060 can run that before the boat goes back in the water.

Really weird. Stupid electrons.

If it loses too much speed in the turn doesn’t that cause it to disengage. It seems like on mine if it falls too much the speed turns red and pp does not attempt to recover. Mine is a 13 Star not 18.

Markmcfarland, it will but it will do everything it can to keep the speed before it lets go. If the throttle is all the way down that is the range ZO has to work with, if it fails it will be because the motor can't generate the power wide open.

I played with mine a little tonight and even it tight turns it would keep the preset speed. Sorry to the guinea pigs that were at the end of the string but it was done for science.
