Go to Perfect Pass' website. They have all the prices listed, and pics of all the gauges. I believe the GPS wakeboard version is $1200 US. You have to call them direct to order, to be sure you get the proper model for your engine.

Good luck!

Skier-to-Skier will give you a better deal on any of the same products. The 3-event Stargazer GPS (mechanical-servo) is $1267 US, no tax. Best deal in town....

Easy to install.

What's the throttle on that boat? Drive by wire or is it a physical cable from the shifter?

I thought only ZO had options for the new boats.

With a 2012 you have to use Zero-Off. That is throttle by wire.

Zero off is an excellent system. It is very easy to operate. You do not need to consider crew weight or skier weight. It does not rely on a paddle wheel to calculate speed. You do not need magnets at the skier gates on your slalom course. It is pretty much the new standard for speed control in tournaments.

Some argue that the pull is not very forgiving. But it is very consistent.

Ok, Today is the day I purchase Perfect Pass.

Do I need to get the 3 event or would the wake version be ok for me. I talked to my mechanic about the whole paddle wheel idea since we are on the river. He said "have you seen your prop lately" I'm always busting my dam props up So in light of not wanting to have to baby my boat we can just adjust it from on screen. So I will be going with the GPS versions.

Wake series or 3 event?

I have the PP Stargazer on my '95 Prostar. It is the 3 event slalom. It came with the paddle wheel and has the option for Wakeboard. However, is your discipline is wake boarding then you should probably go with the wake series. Paddle wheels are problematic. I have had to replace the paddle wheel twice because it just wasn't reading properly. Never banged up a paddle wheel on the water, whether it was lakes or rivers. Never banged one up on the trailer.

The Stargazer uses one GPS receiver. The standard PP system relied entirely on the paddle wheel. Certainly the GPS technology is an advantage over the standard systems. You would be right to go with the wake version.
