Sorry I was recommending throttle springs for a carb set up, knowing you have an LT-1. My bad. GPS does have some variance, RPM has less.

After the rubber band test worked better I decided to just juryrig the throttle with an extra spring since i can't find the stock springs anywhere and didn't want to take the throttle apart to wind the spring tighter. So I got a box of throttle springs from the auto parts store and found one that fit nicely and about doubles the tension. GPS mode works great now with just a little bit of surging about what they said should be expected (like an occasional +/- .1 to .2mph).

The only setting in the PerfectPass GPS mode is there KDW which defaults to 80. PP suggested for the LT-1 to dial it down to 40 which is what I have it at now. Not sure what kx++ is unless you are talking about the same thing.

Glad it worked

In the latter S/W versions, it looks like they've taken out a lot of the settings, so it's just kd for slalom, kdw for wakeboard etc...

Should still have KX setting

Believe its on/off + up arrow to get to the background ball settings then maybe menu to get to KX? or maybe its just Menu/

Once you find the setting it is literally just a how hot do you want the throttle, I have found sometimes the boat needs to react more or less to avoid a surge on GPS. And sometimes the powerful boats need the heat more.
