    Broadband 3G Radar Features:

    • 30% More Range - Broadband 3G™ Radar allows you to see more targets farther away from your boat. Now you get the same impressive short-range capabilities of the original Broadband Radar™ with the addition of exposing targets previously unseen up to 24 nm away.
    • Unparalleled Short Range Target Discrimination - Where it Matters Most - Simrad Yachting's Broadband Radar™ provides amazing target resolution, even at an unprecedented 1/32 nm range. Docks, channel markers, moored vessels and other critical targets are displayed with clarity and separation for added confidence in close quarters. Broadband Radar™ technology also eliminates the "main bang" of a pulse radar the obscured "dead zone" immediately around the vessel which interferes with close target detection.
    • Lowest RF Transmission for Safe, Flexible Installation - Because Simrad Broadband Radar™ transmits at 1/10,000 the power of typical pulse radars (emitting 5 times less energy than an average cell phone), the radome is safe to mount in locations never before possible. In addition, the lowest DC power draw of any X-band marine radar makes this system ideally suited for sailboats and other vessels with limited power.
    • Navigation in an Instant - No more waiting 2-3 minutes for a magnetron to warm up - 100% solid-state design provides InstantOn™ capability. When darkness falls or the fog rolls in, you will always be ready. Ideal for sailboats wishing to save power, or boats at anchor not wishing to run the radar continuously.
