Airmar DX900+

I would be interested in comments from owners of the Airmar DX900+ (an ultrasonic speed, depth and water temperature sensor).

I'm considering buying one, and while they are pricey, it's an all-in-one solution. The one thing that gives me pause is they don't want you to put anti-foul on the transducer face. It seems to me it will be a bear to keep clean enough to work.

It also appears that the electrodes protrude from the transducer face making it a problem for cleaning the bottom of the boat while in the water.

You might want to check Panbo before purchasing...

Re: Airmar DX900+

I think the newest version is UDST 800? Here is a Panbo article, with mention of it and the DX900.

I am interested as well. Wondering just how clean they have to be kept to work correctly. For instance, do they work when the hull has a layer of scum?
