18” DOME RADAR WITH MOTIONSCOPE™ TECHNOLOGY

This 18” dome radar highlights moving targets in color and fully integrates with select Garmin chartplotters.

Know what’s coming. MotionScope technology shows targets in color as they move toward 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.

HIGH-POWERED RADAR

This 40-watt solid-state radar has a range from 20’ to 48 nautical miles, even in fog or rain. It offers rotation speeds of 24 RPM for reduced power consumption and 48 RPM for fast screen updates.

HIGH-RESOLUTION RADAR

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 color imagery enhances target separation.

MOTIONSCOPE TECHNOLOGY

MotionScope uses the Doppler effect to detect moving targets and highlight them in different colors so you can navigate around other boats or severe weather — or toward fishing spots where birds feed at the surface.

INTUITIVE OPERATION

This radar doesn’t have any complex user settings to deal with, so it’s easy to install and start using.

See incredible detail on the water.

TARGET SIZE

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.

ECHO TRAILS

A historical “trail” is left on the screen to help you quickly and easily identify moving targets and potential collision threats.

DUAL RANGE

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.

DUAL-RADAR SUPPORT

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.

RADAR OVERLAY

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 30 selected targets, helping you keep track of other vessels and avoid collisions.

GUARD ZONE

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.
