Garmin has plans to make advances in the marine market on the back of an expanding product portfolio with a new range of radars.
Garmin International Inc recently announced the introduction of its GMR Fantom 254/256 open-array radars, specially designed for the marine sector.
With short- and long-range target detection performance as well as consistency, the new series of radars are equipped with ‘MotionScope’ technology and adjustable speed threshold, detecting moving targets in real-time. According to Garmin, the radars will help inform boaters and anglers of other boats, flocks of birds or weather ahead.
Also, the new radars come with enhanced features like scan-to-scan averaging and improved mini-automatic radar plotting aid (MARPA) with Automatic Acquisition, which provides improved target precision and more visibility to explorers. According to Garmin, these capabilities provide a clear, visual scope of water ahead and eliminate the clutter that might interfere with target detection consistency.
