Seadoo depth finder question
I'm thinking of installing the stock depth finder on an RXT. Those of you who have the stock depth finder:
Can you set a minimum depth, like say 6 feet, at which point an alarm will sound or the display blink or something to alert you that you are getting shallow?

I put mine in last Fall but haven't had soft enough water to try it out yet. I'll let you know in about 2 months.

no you can not set a min depth. The guage just reads observed depth and does it very well! I will not own a sea doo without one.

I have a depth finder with alarm in my SD Utopia 205 and have found that I disable the alarm function more often than use it. When ever you pull up to a dock or the lift, the alarm would go off and just become annoying.
When you pull up to places like that you know it's going to be shallow and you are watching for things in the water, you don't need some buzzer screaming and distracting you.
If it goes off while you running on plane, you draft a lot less and you have gone over the spot already.
Just my $.02 worth.

GTX and it does alarm when docking, etc., I set the minimum depth at 6 feet for the alarm. That gives me time to react at WOT. With the black water and shifting sand we have here in Florida i't a must for me...cause you cannot see the bottom at all..
