My two cents
if you sail in an area that has a lot of fog, weather, and/or at night and there is a lot of commercial traffic also in the area, then itmaybe worthwhile. If you're mostly a fair weather sailor, sail in areas where there is not a lot of commercial traffic and don't sail at night or in heavy fog, then I wouldn't bother.
I have radar on my boat. The only reason I have it is that it came with it. I have only turned it on once, to see if it worked during the survey.
Just because you have radar, doesn't mean anything. You have to know how to intrepret the screen image. It's not like looking at a TV screen where everything is clear as a whistle as to what it is.
If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
