    Why don't ski makers include built-in GPS into their electronics?

    Analog speedometers don't make sense anymore...

    My guess is they get the analog dreamo's for a dime a dozen, why give us something for our 12k.

    What about also including a built in stereo/mp3 player??? I mean come on; We're paying upwards of $13,000 or more for these things. If it were a car, you would at least get a/c and a stereo.....why not a combined GPS/nav/mp3 player with speakers strategically placed??

    I want more for my money!!!!! LOL

    If I wanted speakers, a sound system I'd get a boat. What's next AC? I want something that is actually usefull. How hard would it be to put a depth finder on these suckers? It would be nice when in unfarmiliar water.

    Seadoo had depth finders on some of thier ski's...

    I think Water temp and depth would be great. Gps would be so-so, but seeing as how cheap it would be to install (you're talking only a couple of dollars per guage install), they should do it!

    I think GPS would be the single most useful accessory they could give us. Not only for speed read out but to keep us from getting lost as well.

    RXT-X has water temp.. GTXlimited has the Garmin GPS I think something that is portible is better than a built in system.......

    Also you guys suck I paid 25grand on the water for my T-X in Australia, that is more than my car which has aircon....

    I need to move to the states......
