There's no brains in the key so you could still use a toggle if you want. I'm imagining the key is simply acting as a more secure toggle switch.

So, you will only be able to start the boat when the ignition is ON, not from OFF or ACC.

Also, instead of a toggle cut-off switch, you will need to use the original key-switch as the cut-off switch.

These are minor changes, but I just wanted everyone to be aware of the changes since it is slightly different than I quoted before.
So... now I have to push the button 3 times to start the boat, correct?

1st push = Accy
2nd push = On
3rd push = Crank

That may be a minor change in programming, but a big difference in how the system operates... IMO.

Even one additional push of the button has got me out. I like the long hold to start from off and a short presses to go to ACC & ON.

Lawyers get in your ear, tr6coug?

I agree. Unless my order from last week results in original item being shipped as described, I would like to cancel order since item description has changed. Sorry if this causes confusion but I don't want to push the button 3 times to start

perhaps you can post a video explaining the "new" process, or is it just like the process you show on your site video,I am now on the fence, have you shipped any units out yet?

Yes, exactly. They ruin all the fun!

The method to start from OFF now is two momentary pushes and then a long push to start. Or if your in ACC then one momentary push and then a long push to start. This is the same as was shown in the video.

If this changes anyone's mind on the order, just PM me. I haven't shipped any yet, so I don't mind sending a refund.

Why the change? Push to start from off is no different than in a new car with push button start.

Mainly the concern that anyone with a finger (e.g. little kids) could start the boat. A car is different, you need more conditions to start, like have the key on you then press the brake AND push the button. Having a deliberate sequence like 1 or 2 quick pushes, then one long push is safer than just a push and hold.

what about while engine running, one push to turn off?
