Danny,

I know a few people with the system. None are happy with the performance. I've seen it installed on a handful of other boats, and about half had them disconnected because of their annoyance.

I'd prefer one of the lower cost, 16mi radar units with watchman mode. It'll come on at a specified interval and scan for contacts. Everyone I know with a watchman radar, likes it.

I'd suggest Furuno or JRC radars; I feel the Raymarine systems are awkward to work with. In the professional marine industry, that's all I've seen.

Cheers,
Aaron N.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
