Hi all. The radar
on our boat
is pretty much original from the 90's. It works sometimes, and usually only for 5-10 minutes. A loud grinding noise
comes from the dome as well. My keen diagnostic mind tells me it's time to replace it.
We have a raymarine
chart plotter. Unfortunately we are away from the boat
so I dont have the model to check compatability. That said, I would like to run a dedicated display inside the saloon
as well, or solely if needed. That is how the current
system is, and we can see it through the window from the cockpit
. Adding an overlay on the chart plotter would be a nice bonus.
I'm not worried about setup, the current
placement is great, and I can use the existing wires to fish
the new ones(yes I want to update wiring
My biggest question would be recommendations for models, and moniter/display.
We are running nmea 0183
with a seatalk
mostly use the radar
, storm tracking. But have as well for fog
and dark nights. We do have ais
As for budget
, what I've been finding online seems to be 2-3000$. We are ok in that range, can dig up a little more if it's a drastic increase in product, but of course would like to stay on the lower side if possible.
