I'm curious about the quality if the current
line of Raymarine
products, in particular their MFDs and radar
. On paper they look good, but reality often differs. Are there a lot of bugs like in the Simrad
products, or is the quality better?
And how well does the radar
work, especially MARPA? I'd be really interested in a video clip or two of the following MARPA tests. Furuno
does real well on both tests, and Simrad
fails miserably. I'd really like to see where Raymarine
Test 1, MARPA on an AIS
target: Pick a target that has AIS
and is showing a motion vector. Lock onto the same target with MARPA. Once acquired, how do the AIS and MARPA vectors compare? They should match very closely.
Test 2, Multiple MARPA locks on the same target: Pick a target and acquire it multiple times (2-3) with MARPA. Once acquired, how do the MARPA vectors compare to each other? They should match very closely
Thanks in advance.
