    FX SVHO Top Speed & GPS app alternatives/recommendations

    Just purchased a 2019 FX SVHO & 2019 VXR HO and looking to make some baseline tests before modding both. I understand the best way will be to purchase a V-Box, but wanted to see if there are any other (cheaper) alternatives out there. I downloaded the “Speedometer Pro” app for iPhone, which shows max speeds. The VXR showed a max speed of 59.5mph with almost a full tank of gas and a 200lb rider, which sounds about right for this ski. The FX SVHO showed a high of 67.9mph with a 200lb rider, and averaged 67.3mph regardless of how much fuel it had. I thought I would see higher mph out of the FX SVHO, so a bit disappointed if thats actually the top speed. All tests done in 85 degree weather, high humidity (Miami), and with 5-10mph winds. Water was almost flat, but with a slight chop. Appreciate any input here.

    Thanks!

    Does the 2019 FX SVHO have an electronic speed limiter?

    I have a Garmin E-Trex GPS which does a great job. It is water resistant (but does NOT float) records speed and also has a reset-able maximum speed. I usually keep it in the glove box for speed runs and keep it in a zip lock bag in case it gets thrown off ski in some crazy maneuver.

    Yeah it's rpm limited to either 7500 or 7600. Not sure what the Hull/engine code is. At least that is what the service manual says.
