    Default Which Radar to Buy

    I am looking at replacing the radar on my boat this spring as the old Faruno I have is not working and it is like 15+ years old. I am looking for something that I can just turn on and have it work. I'm not into the fine tuning for a decentpicture. Anyone got suggestions? This is for a 28' Bayliner.

    Hey I have the garmin 740s. Its everything its hyped up to be and more. You can get the whole ball of wax for about 2500.00 minus the transducer. I know you're just looking for a radar, but once you've used the bathometric chart or the "fisheye" view of the bottom you'll be convinced. Mark my words its the real deal IMO

    For under $1350 you could get a single purpose radar like the Furuno 1623 LCD Radar System.

    This is the radar I am considering installing on my boat, much like the kicker I have hanging off the stern it wouldn’t get much use, but nice to have when you need it.

    If I lived down in the Pacific Northwest I’d defiantly have broad band radar for its clarity and instant on ability, but for the rare occasions I would need radar out in PWS in the summer it just doesn’t make economical sense.
