I bought a new Ski-Doo MXZ REV this past season, and I really like the machine but there is one annoying thing that I canâ€™t seem to figure out. I like to watch the tripmeter as Iâ€™m riding so I know how far back a particular road or intersection is. Problem is, the speedometer is stuck in some mode where whatever I have set to be displayed in the LCD screen is switched off and the speed is displayed instead. The speedo is already showing me how fast Iâ€™m going, so why in the world does the LCD need to give me this same info twice? If I set the thing to show me the tripmeter, it second-guesses me and shows speed. What good is this?
It only does this when youâ€™ve going like over 50 mph, but it is really annoying and downright a pain in the butt because you lose the ability to track mileage as you pass things. Is this just the way it is, or is there some programming I donâ€™t know about that can reset this? HELP!
Itâ€™s not you; itâ€™s the internal programming of the tripmeter and the LCD display. At a speed of 55 mph and higher, the LCD screen will display speed only instead of the mode you selected. Evidently youâ€™re not smart enough to watch that great big dial as to how fast youâ€™re going, and need to be shown the speed a second time.
I agree with you, it is a royal pain for riders who like to track locations on the fly. Some would argue that you shouldnâ€™t be looking at the tripmeter when youâ€™re going over 55 mph, but this really is condition dependent. I know of now way around this, so weâ€™re stuck with this annoyance. If you want that data youâ€™re just going to have to slow down.
