This video helps you become acquainted with the entire family of Garmin Marine radars, gives an overview of how radar works, and which Garmin radar will best fit your needs.
Marine RADAR Explained by PSICOMPANY.COM http://www.psicompany.com/radar/ A marine RADAR is a ranging and detection system that picks up signals from objects several hundred feet or several miles away from your boat. The RADAR system sends out a signal in the form of a sound wave. This pulse is sent out from the RADAR dish on top of your boat. When the signal is reflected by an object, the RADAR computer determines how far away it is and where it is located. It requires two types of readings for this to occur. Distance Let's say that a boat is a mile off your starboard bow. The RADAR signal is sent out and comes in contact with this boat, it then bounces off the boat and registers on the receiver. The receiver sends this signal to the computer in the RDAR, which calculates the t...
Radar is an important part of your boat's marine electronics suite, but it can be hard to learn how to use.

Marine radars are X band or S band radars to provide bearing and distance of ships and land targets in vicinity from own ship (radar scanner) for collision avoidance and navigation at sea. Radar is a vital component for safety at sea and near the shore. Captains need to be able to maneuver their ships within feet in the worst of conditions and to be able to navigate "blind". This means inside a dark room with no visibility they need to safely navigate their way through waters in the worst of weather. Radars are rarely used alone in a marine setting. In commercial ships, they are integrated into a full system of marine instruments including chartplotters, sonar, two-way radio communication devices, and emergency locators (SART). The integration of these devices is very important as it bec...
How does RADAR work? It's a bit like shouting very loudly at a cliff and waiting for the echo to come back to you. Whether you use rude words or not is completely up to you. RADAR is emitting a sound wave and waiting for the echo to come back to you. By timing the returning echo you can work out where exactly another object is. The really interesting thing about radar is if you use multiple angled receivers you can work out the position and height of a target. This technology was essential in winning the Battle of Britain in 1940. But that was 1940, what about radar now? Is it as defunct as the 3 ½ inch floppy disk? Well, no actually. Radar is still pretty important in the military but the technology is a lot more advanced. In fact each time you connect to a sat nav to figure out where ...

This video helps you become familiar with various radar screens, settings and user controls commonly shown on chartplotters equipped with Garmin Marine radar.
Radar systems comprise three basic components: A transmitter and a receiver unit, also called a transceiver, an antenna, also known as a scanner, and a display unit. In many radar units the transceiver is located in the scanner. Radar signals travel along the "line of sight". Therefore the detection of targets depends on the height of the radar scanner and the height of the target. Marine radars operate either on the X-band frequency (9000 MHz), or on the S-band frequency (3000 MHz). A shorter wavelength allows the use of smaller antennas, therefore on most small boats the radar used are in the X-band frequency. However, S-band radar has an advantage - it can penetrate precipitation to a better degree, and therefore can detect targets which may be obscured in heavy rainfall.
