In using a radar
effectively, you need to make adjustments for different conditions. I was frequently changing the gain, range, brightness, rain clutter and sea clutter. With this radar I was able to pick up logs
, kayaks, seagulls(!), squalls. While in rain, I'd make the adjustment that gave the best picture. In Southeast Alaska
it rains a lot. The radar worked fine. There's a reason so many commercial
boats use Furuno
stuff. My radar was on 95% of the time. The 1830 is a bit bulky for my current boat
. Otherwise it would be on my list.
Here's a link to the Furuno
support area for the 1830:
Check the manual for the connector you want and look at the list of available connectors/cables.
