    Arrow Polaris Depth sensor, depth gauge?

    I would like to better understand which models and years of Polaris had a depth finder option.
    What was the part number, how was it installed, etc?

    I think it was an option on the 1999 Genesis (carb and Fitch?), and maybe on some other Genesis years. I have never seen a picture of one, or even read about anyone using one.

    Did any other Polaris models have a depth gauge?

    Can any third party depth sensors be used with the Polaris MFI?

    Anyone have some info they could share?

    Edit: More Polaris depth sensor info can now be found here.

    Where does one look up Polaris accessory part numbers and application info?

    I must be missing something obvious...

    Would you like me to scan it for you?

    Is it something that could be posted?

    I didn't know the Virage could accept the depth gauge!

    How does it install?
    Anybody have experience using one on a Genesis or Virage?

    I'm betting that you have to have the MFD that will accept an input from the depth transducer. It was only available from Polaris for the Genesis. I believe that also included the compass.

    Well, that was what I thought too.

    That the Genesis not only had an MFI that was ready to display the depth info, but that the Genesis MFI also had the electronics and wire harness connections in place to plug it in. I believe the Genesis MFI always includes the compass feature, while my 2002 Virage TXi does not.

    Not having seen one in person, or even read any details about the depth option, I just don't really know.

    Since the Virage has a similar MFI display (but not the same part number), what beerdart says about the depth option also fitting the Virage seems possible.

    If someone has actually installed one, or has the installation info, that would be helpful.

    Edit: Click below for more info on the different MFI display versions
    There are four versions of the Polaris MFI display
    3280292 has a built-in Compass, Depth display, PERC reverse display
    3280371 has Compass, PERC reverse display
    3280370 has PERC reverse display
    3280365 does not have Compass, Depth or PERC reverse display
