Digital Radar #2, Garmin open array
Yup, a digital radar double header. Garmin announced this stylish 4kW/4’ open array along with a 4kW/6’ model. Note again the DSP claim, “Digital processing allows for more precise recognition, enhancement, and filtering of radar echoes – making the finished display easier to read and interpret.” I only have one screen shot, taken with the $3,600 4–footer, but it does look pretty sharp (below, and bigger here). I also notice in the specs that these arrays can run at either 24 or 48 rpm, which may mean that the display software will eventually be able to show you two ranges at once, a very nice feature on some Simrad and Si-Tex radars. That’s all I’ve got for now; you all have a great weekend.
