so i just went on a trip to michigan and the trip total was around 700.

the reason im posting this topic is because i want to know what is more accurate? a cable driven setup for the tripometer or a digital set up for a tripometer?

my uncles 03 edge x showed 33 miles more on the trip than my 06 600 did....

being that the digital fuel gauge calibration is off like 2 or 3 gallons on our sleds.... i cant tell which on is more accurate.

the cable has been along wayyyyy longer than the digital setup, which has only been with polaris for 2 years. so i would think that the cable woud be more dialed in and polaris would have that figured out better by now...

any ideas or knowledge? greatly appreciated

I'm not sure, but it is possible that they're both accurate and the mileage is just different for assorted reasons; like spinning the track more one one sled than the other or something.

But since his shows a higher number and speedos are known to exaggerate, I wouldn't doubt it if yours is the more accurate one.

Depends a lot on how you ride. Who cares about mileage or speed anyway? Want to know the real mileage and speed just carry a GPS with you and log your route.

well i know that he wasnt the one doing the spinning. he takes it fairly easy on that sled.
and plus 33 miles of spinning would be just insane i would think.

my dad and i really keep up the pace and ride hard basically the entire trip. who knows
