Can anyone tell me where the temp. pickup is usually located on a factory installed PerfectPass system?

Same place as the speed pickup.

Thanks guys,

For some reason, my PerfectPass does not seem to be giving accurate water temp info. the temp. it is giving is much closer to the air temp than the water temp. Has anyone else had this issue?

If you haven't tried already, you can calibrate your PP temp reading. You'll need a thermometer to put a foot or so down in the water.

Can i hook up an external temprature display on the PP sensor?
That way i don't have to go in the menu when reading temprature?

I was unaware that you could calibrate the temp. I knew that you could calibrate many of the pull characteristics (KDW, NN, CS and speed calibration). Is the temp calibration in the same area?

The manual that came with mine is WP version 6.5N, January '05. Under display features/systems settings, it says:
"To calibrate lake temp press the up & down keys together when temperature is being displayed".
Hopefully, this will fix it. Good luck.

Thanks for the info. I will give it a try and let you know if that fixes it.

Well, looks like it did just need to be calibrated. One thing I am still puzzled about is why the instructions for the temp. calibration were left out of the '06 PerfectPass manual (version 6.5Ng) :roll: Anyway, appreciate the help Nafplio. As a side note, maybe one day PerfectPass will design a much more user-friendly interface! :?

No problem. I had to calibrate mine when I got my boat. The original temp indications where rather optimistic.
I was just looking at their website. Maybe they missed it in '06 or they didn't think it was necessary. I agree not very user-friendly. I wouldn't buy another boat without it though.

Since PP isn't at the top of my list this year, I'm wonder if one can hack a LCD and a PCB together to read the temp. Wonder what the data looks like.
