    Compass not working 2006 GTX Ltd

    I have searched the 4tec sites for why the compass is not working and found that I need to take it to the dealer to have it turned on. I wanted a spare lanyard so I took the ski into the dealer. After making the lanyard the tech guy came out and stated that he could not find the option to turn on the compass, he agreed that it should have been there. An ealier posted stated the dealer would need to update the BUDs software but the dealer claimed to be on the latest version. This is an early production model (born on date December 2005). Anyone have any ideas on what I should tell my dealer to do?

    They need version 2.39
    It will fix the compass once they "write data"

    Thanks friebe1,

    I will take this info back to the dealer next time. I hope this is not until then end of season. This was more of a dealer test, the GPS is really all I use.

    When the wife first got her GTX all the instruments were reading in metric. but the compass was working fine. A 100 mile return trip to the dealer corrected them but now where the compass used to be it just says "Sea-doo" Have to drive another 200 miles to get the idiot to do it right !!!! I miss the days before all this computerized s**t !!

    Your dealer is not turning it on. I had the exact problem took it in the Tech programmed it and the compass works just fine.

    Did you ever get this fixed. The dealer has to change the pitch on the compass in the computer. They messed mine up it was set to 41 should be 51 on a RXP don't know on yours.

    We havn't brought it back to the dealer yet. Figure on waiting until something else goes that's covered by warranty. Kill 2 birds with one stone !
