18-INCH DOME RADAR WITH MOTIONSCOPE™ TECHNOLOGY
Know what’s coming. MotionScope technology shows targets in colour as they move towards you or away.
GMR Fantom brings the power. 40 watts of it, actually.
Get high resolution without wasting energy, thanks to pulse compression.
See targets clearly, and adjust their sizes as needed.
This 40-watt solid-state radar has a range from 20 feet (6 metres) to 48 nautical miles (88 km), even in fog or rain. It offers rotation speeds of 24 RPM for reduced power consumption and 48 RPM for fast screen updates.
The 5.2-degree horizontal beamwidth provides a high-resolution image and high antenna gain to pick out targets at a distance, while 8-bit true colour imagery enhances target separation.
MotionScope uses the Doppler effect to detect moving targets and highlight them in different colours so you can navigate around other boats or severe weather — or towards fishing spots where birds feed at the surface.
This radar doesn’t have any complex user settings to deal with, so it’s easy to install and start using.
Adjust the size of objects on the radar image.
AUTO BIRD GAIN
Locate flocks of birds at the water’s surface where baitfish are also likely to be found.
A historical “trail” is left on the screen to help you quickly and easily identify moving targets and potential collision threats.
Single radar antenna is capable of providing split-screen images on your chartplotter side-by-side, with independent range setting and controls for both close and long range.
Using dual radar provides redundancy and allows each display unit on the boat to pull data from one of two different radar sources.
DYNAMIC AUTO GAIN
This feature automatically adjusts to your surroundings for optimal performance in all conditions.
DYNAMIC SEA FILTER
Gain automatically adjusts sea clutter for calm, medium and rough sea conditions.
Overlay radar images onto your chartplotter’s map page. You can add an optional autopilot or heading sensor (sold separately) for best results.
MARPA TARGET TRACKING
Mini-automatic radar plotting aid (MARPA) tracks up to 10 selected targets, helping you keep track of other vessels and avoid collisions.
Set the safety zone, and receive an alarm when an object enters the zone.
VRM AND EBL
Variable range markers (VRM) and electronic bearing lines (EBL) allow rapid measurements of distance and bearing to vessels and land.
