    One of the few things I really wish my boat had. Depth and temp readings. I'll be adding the appropriate sending unit with the RideSteady system in the spring (hopefully).

    I just realized I have nowhere on the dash to install a depth finder. i really hope I can do like in the 2012-2018 models and upgrade the transducer internals to do depth. The concern I have is will the Connext 4.3 recognize the new part and adjust the display or will it need a software update from the dealer....

    With the new 19’ boats being a few inches bigger and holding 10 more gallons of fuel. It would be nice to have a tandem trailer at least as option.

    What would make me buy a 2020 AR195? Most likely nothing as I am thinking a 24’ but if I was still in the market for a 19 this is what I would like to see. The ability to pick your colors similar to Axis. No more decals have color accents, redesigned tower similar to the X models, a tandem trailer option, something similar to the Wakebooster so you can surf while the boat is driving without turning. Also at this price point just toss in the tower speakers and a sub.

    I have a feeling that could turn very expensive in a hurry. Definitely worth checking the cost though. If it were more than a couple hundred bucks I would probably remove the phone mount on the dash and install an actual sonar display. It will be leaps and bounds better than just a depth finder. But you will have to find out which ones you can get a thru hull transducer for if you want to go that route, or if its not a big deal to use the wired version on the back of the boat I would strongly suggest mounting a piece of that Star Board that glues onto the boat so you aren't drilling no holes, Ive had one on my fishing boat for years, well worth the money!

    Well, I figured out that Yamaha uses a Airmar ST850 NMEA 2000 Transducer in my boat (2019 SX190), it does speed and water temp. If I unplug it, I see the depth replace the water temp on the right side of my screen but "greyed" out and then I get a "No Signal" warning. This tells me that if I put the transducer with the correct internals for depth, the Connext will regognize and change from Water to Depth Chart on the main display and then I will have my water temp option below in the scrolling menu. Now, Yamaha does not use the standard 5 pin NMEA connection, they cut the wire and put there own connector inside the engine compartment which is a 4 PIN, they don't use the 5th Bare Wire . I will order a DST800 tri transducer (depth, speed . temp) and splice that into my 4 wire adapter at the connector coming out of the transducer that should do the trick to get me depth under $300... not cheap but ... better than $450 to $550 i'm finding on the OEM part below. upload_2018-9-12_22-39-7.png

    P.S. I caved and found the 2019 Transducer Yamaha Part for the SX195 and ordered that, should be plug and play, I'll let y'all know..
    31 Transducer F2K-U8K1W-00-00 $385.35

    That's certainly easier than installing a stand alone Sonar unit.

    This might be a dumb question but are the new 195's going to be the same color options in 2019 as 2018? I would LOVE if they came out with something in blue for a 195!

    They have a black/dark blue for Sx195, not in the AR where it's grey or black tones.

    I'm not a fan of the current color options as well and that's why I got a wrap.

    I paid $1,600 for my wrap, but I went with a metallic flake 3m product which was more. The other material would have been closer to $1,200.

    Here’s the new dash. Found a Garmin Echomap 53cv and I figured it’s one of the only ones that will flush mount in the 2019 space. For under $300 since it’s being discontinued, I can’t complain. Still doing the transducer for depth when it comes in for the Yamaha Connext and will also do an in hull transducer to have some chirp down view mostly for picking swimming spots. Nice to have Chartplotter on the dash.
