Cruise Control out of Control

Hey guys and gals. I guess it would not be a normal weekend trying to use our 2013 X2 that has been an absolute nightmare since day 1 without another problem. I have the relay problem fixed, the new batteries seem to be holding. The rudder port is still leaking like a champ but the bilge is keeping the boat afloat until I can get it in to get fixed.

Now my new problem is with the cruise control. The boat comes up onto a plane and then the speedometer maxes out, the digital reading shows 135mph, and the cruise immediately stops the boat. It did this 4 times before I turned it off and pulled my son manually driving the boat. After his session I played with everything I could think of to get it to stop. Turned the boat off, battery switches off, cruise on and off, went into a big wide open area to make sure the gps was getting good signal, tried activating the cruise while moving, etc. The best I could do was to activate the cruise while at an established speed but then the boat would surge back and forth by 5mph. Has anyone else had this issue?

I had the same problem with a 13 X25, ultimately the touch screen was replaced end of last season, fingers crossed this weekend it will work for its first run of the season.

I am on my 4th touch screen in this boat. This is really hard to hear that it may be the screen again.

My 2013 x2 did this when i first took it out this year. after 15 minutes it started working flawlessly. apparently the GPS had to reacquire its bearing after sitting all winter with-out power.

Sine your issues are taking a lot longer to resolve I wonder... Is the GPS antenna attached?

I had the CC on my '14 x2 stop a couple of times while surfing. It turns out my brother was resting his arm on the antenna.. Told him not to put his arm there and the the problem has never resurfaced. (Knock on wood)

I checked the antenna, which sits right in front of the drivers windshield. It was clear and I also double checked the connection. It seems to be working because it is giving speeds they are just all over the map and inconsistent. I was hopeful that it was just an issue with acquiring a signal which is why I took it out into the middle of the lake but no luck. I am assuming it is probably the computer again. I guess I am going to buy another computer. And just keep throwing thousand dollar bills at this boat. What a POS this boat has been.
