Boat Radars

Garmin Radar

Garmin offer an array of radar models, such as the GMR Fantom series and the GMR xHD2 series. These radars are designed to provide boaters with enhanced situational awareness by detecting and displaying nearby objects and vessels on their chartplotter or multifunction display (MFD).

Garmin radars utilize solid-state technology, which offers advantages like instant power-up, faster start-up times, and lower power consumption compared to traditional magnetron-based radars. In addition, Garmin radars employ pulse compression technology, allowing for high-resolution radar images and improved target separation. This technology enables users to discern small and distant targets more effectively. Garmin boat radars also contain MotionScope, which is a unique technology that provides real-time moving target indication. It helps users differentiate between stationary objects like land masses and moving targets such as other vessels or birds.

Furthermore, many Garmin radars support dual range functionality, allowing users to simultaneously monitor two distance ranges on their display. This feature is particularly useful in situations where you need to keep track of both close-range obstacles and far-reaching targets. Some Garmin radars also support MARPA (Mini Automatic Radar Plotting Aid) target tracking. MARPA enables users to track the movement of multiple radar targets, providing valuable information such as target bearing, speed, and closest point of approach (CPA).

Garmin radars seamlessly integrate with compatible Garmin chartplotters and multifunction displays. They can overlay radar images on top of navigational charts, allowing for easy interpretation of radar targets in relation to your boat's position.
