Re: Garmin 740s chart plotter and HD 18 Radar

Might I ask.....why are you replacing it?
Also, I have heard differing reports regarding the Garmin radar. ...what has been your experience ?
I may be interested.
Thanks, David

Re: Garmin 740s chart plotter and HD 18 Radar

Iím going with new B&G instruments and mfd. When I go cruising again Iíll add B&G Radar.
The radar worked perfectly all the way from Panama to Philadelphia. I used it mostly the pick out squalls while underway at night.

Re: Garmin 740s chart plotter and HD 18 Radar

I have this exact setup, and tho it is a bit dated now, I still really like it. Very reliable pair.

Re: Garmin 740s chart plotter and HD 18 Radar

I found it to be an excellent small radar- easily tuned with very good target definition and good rejection.

Re: Garmin 740s chart plotter and HD 18 Radar

I have the 741 and the same HD radar. Works great too.
Radar is fairly light on power: 4 Amps when scanning, and 3 amps in stand by.

Data cable between the radar and MFD is a regular cat5 network cable, so easy to replace or splice.
