“Our field test of seven relatively inexpensive radar systems (average price around $1,500) reveals Furuno’s 1712 as the top choice among monochrome displays. For color, we prefer the Simrad RA30. The 7″ display on Furuno’s 1712�our overall top pick�has clearly labeled function buttons and a simple cursor pad; it offered the best menu navigation and system control among the units we tested.”
