Garmin GMR Fantom 18x Marine Radar:
Garmin’s latest radar, the Fantom GMR 18x. This incredibly powerful 18” dome radar has beauty and brains with a black color option and 50 watts of output power.
Tailor your 50-watt solid-state dome radar to your boat with a white or black option — both with a range from 20’ to 48 nautical miles, even in fog or rain, and up to 60 RPM rotation speed for a refresh rate that can detect movement at any speed.
High-resolution images and high antenna gain help to pick out targets at a distance, while 8-bit true color imagery enhances target separation.
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.
Power Save Mode
The power save feature lets you choose when you need more power or less, so you have power when you need it and conserve it when you don’t.
Timed Transmit Mode
Boaters and sailors can specify transmit times down to the seconds instead of minutes, allowing for reduced power consumption.
These radars don’t have any complex user settings to deal with, so they’re easy to install and start using.
