Default Metric Depth Finder

2003 2400SE Maxum

My factory depth finder reads in meters. I've looked for dip switches and other mechanisms to change it to feet. Does anyone know if these were designed to be dual readings or if there's a user sequence code with the dash buttons. Easy enough to multiply by 3.1 in my head but scares the bejesus out of anyone else.

If you have the simple digital display and 2 switches (on/off and alarm), then you probably have the standard horizon 41BD. Here's the owners manual - http://www.standardhorizon.com/downl...pplication/pdf and here are the instructions for changing units:

Units of Measure
To select the displayed unit
1. Turn the power off with the Depth switch
2. Apply power by switching the Depth switch while holding the alarm switch down.
3. When the unit is on, release the alarm switch.
The display will indicate the current display unit with: Feet Meter F athoms
4. Use the alarm switch up and down to change the value.
5. Five seconds after the last switch press, the units will be saved to memory and the instrument will return to the depth sounder mode.
The display will now indicate the current water depth in the selected display unit.


Want to really scare them - change it to fathoms!

I really appreciate the extra effort you made. My depth meter is now reading in feet!

Oh, you didn't use my fathom idea!

Yup. I'm out on Siesta Key. '98 3200SCR named Hagg. Can't miss us on the Grand Canal.

Glad I could help. I've owned Hagg for about 12 years now, and are starting to replace things that are dieing (depth sounder last year - hence knowing the manual, microwave last weekend - some fun squeezing a new one in, etc), but she runs strong and she remains a great boat for two of us in this area. Every year or two, we talk about replacing her but then get reminded what a great boat she is and how she is perfect for us!
