I've noticed that a lot of boats have their radar repeater installed at the chart table and not near the helm. This means that in order to use said radar, you will need someone who is savvy on the use of radar and is willing to sit down below and watch the screen.
But if you are single handing the boat or a couple standing separate watches, they can't be running below decks every few minutes to view the radar screen.
