Simrad and Lowrance's newest radar technology is now available. It has improved upon their existing broadband technology by incorporating Doppler. Doppler has enabled a host of new features, the most prominent of which is VelocityTrack. VelocityTrack actually senses motion of targets and can visually designate them on screen as closing on your position or moving away. This brings whole new level of information to your collision avoidance tools. This radar also sweeps at an industry leading 60 RPMs for a near real time image of nearby targets. It is also boasts a range of 48 miles for monitoring distant weather.
These radars are ideal for small boats looking to enhance safety. They are ideal on cruising boats and fishing boats up to 40'. They connect to any newer Lowrance or Simrad unit with the included 10 meter ethernet cable. They also require 12V power. They do offer Bird mode but we still recommend going with an open array to use radar as a tool to find birds. This radar features a standard mounting template so it is an easy retrifit with other radar domes, generally newer than 2006. It has cool blue LED lights under it to make it glow! These can be turned off.
