After many hours testing a NXT radome on Gizmo in often busy Maine waters, I believe that Furuno's bold "Radar Redefined" claim is completely justified. This radar is so smart that it makes sense to run it in broad daylight.
If you have a Raymarine a, c, e, eS or gS Series MFD, you recently got an astonishing array of free new features thanks to the just announced and available LightHouse Release 17 software update.
While we've barely begun 2016, the state of recreational marine radar is entirely different than it was in 2015. Thanks to a wide variety of fixed and moving targets, the Miami area is a pretty good place to test radars.
Furuno and Garmin are both announcing new solid state radars here at the Miami Boat Show and boy are they great products.... I mean, can I get a HOLY MACKEREL!?!
If there’s one thing you can count on when it comes to boats, it’s those little technical glitches that throw a wrench into your plans for a carefree day of fishing or a relaxing coastal cruise. While extremely reliable, your boat’s marine electronics can also be affected by these same occasional “gremlins.” Fortunately, their fixes can be as common as their glitches.
What's possible? Believe it or not, the only thing developing faster than the capabilities of your touchscreen marine electronics is your ability to use them.
