Like these I have just found cut off under the cowl perhaps?

OK I'm following the manual, holding 'MODE' and '+' but not getting into CAL1, get to the time on the speedo but no further, what am I doing wrong?

Yep ! I 100% ignore both . Speed goes to pitot at 4knts and fuel I only look at what I've used to see what I have left ..

So do you use a GPS connection for speed above that or just refer to your plotter?

Nope - GPS (SOG) is always on the plotter, but smartcraft takes the speed from the pitot sensor on the leg - you can set the transition speed from paddle to pitot in one of the cal modes - cal 2 I think?

I've a second paddle wheel but this cant cope with anything over 30knts and 'kicks' upoff the transom as if its hit something in the water ( in some ways it has - alot of air gaps under the RING hull I think so water coming back in is a hell of a jolt to it - so I loose depth too !)

Just in case anyone else has this problem...

....on smartcraft guages with 'VDO' on them you hold '+' & '-' then switch the key on, then hold down 'MODE' for 2 seconds to enter calibration settings.

Nice one.
Been trying to figure this out for a while, manual seems to be wrong and can only get into quick cal mode.
Going down to boat now to check if it works.
Cheers for posting
