If you only want to know the depth then why not just go for the Raymarine ST40 with depth transducer RRP is £135.00

On my present rib I have the DS400X a nice bit of kit, colour screen (actually 3 screen displays) lots of info and is even linked to the GPS so you have the present position, speed , temp , battery volts, and lots more. For somebody who wants to fish worth having. On my next demo rib I will go for the ST40

Checkout the new small Eagle Cuda units, I was skeptical, however for the money they are good little units. I think the 126 now comes with a temp sensor.
New boat is here, very happy!
