    New to me ski a few questions.

    I have always been a yamaha fan so last year i purchased a 18 fxho. I love the ski no complaints at all. I had a 2005 gtx for my wife also. She started getting more involved so i wanted something newer for her. I found a 17 GTI 130 orange with 17 hours on it. I paid $6350 with a trailer i thought it was a good deal. I took it out for 5 hours Sunday and I liked it alot. No wear near as snappy as the Yamaha but 54-55 mph top speed is very nice. Also very easy to spin out so very playful. The seat is like sitting on comfortable recliner. Best of all it uses almost no gas. I will probably be using this ski alot for longer trips.
    Now for my questions. I like going for 100+ mile trips and i know on my Fxho when to turn aroud by mileage. I can go a max of 55 miles away and be able to return home with out needing fuel. Is there any way to add a trip meter to the ski so i can see my mileage at a quick glance? I can use my phone but i would like to just be able to look down and see it in the gauges. Wife is not a fan of adding a chart plotter to the ski.
    Second question i have searched and became more confused. Can i add cruise control to this ski? What i think i have found is i need a ski module and then the button for the right handle bar. Then pin it into terminals 7 and 10 on the cluster. But this is where i think i get lost. I think the button comes with wires but no terminals for the cluster so i would have to buy terminals. Where would I get them?
    Third question its out of warranty is there any way to buy a warranty for this ski.
    Thanks for your help.

    Don't know if SeaDoo will sell you an extended warranty. However, when I bought a 2015 Kawasaki last year, I was able to get one.

    She does not like the looks of them. I have one on my FXHO and she hates the look. Personal preference and i wont argue with her.

    Why not just take extra fuel until you get used to the fuel gauge.

    But I'm not seeing options for what you're requesting.

    Here's a breakdown of what functions are available for the various models

    FYI, once the low fuel warning sounds, you'll have about 1/4 tank (3.5 gallons) left.

    I live on the ocean and almost never take the same trip. This is why i would like to have the trip meter. If i lived somewhere where it was the same trip id be good. I go to the keys, 10000 island, clearwater, marco island, lake Okeechobee, just to name a few all from the canal in my back yard. Some of my trips need fuel stops but id like to know how far i can push it
