Hi All,

I posted this in the "electronics" sub forum, but it doesn't get travelled as much. Are there any 3G/4G broadband radar owners here? I pulled the plug for a 3G radar and Lowrance HDS plotter this weekend and would like feed back from owners regarding any issues and use tips, what accessories do you have etc.. Thanks.

Hi All,

Update report on the broad band radar (3G) I purchased last January. I ended up putting it on an 8' pole on the stern, paired it up with a Lowrance HDS-5 (GEN 2) along with a "Point 1" external GPS (for radar overlay on the plotter).

This sucker is GOOD. :) The wife and I took the boat out this weekend and with no training, sat in front of it and identidfied every target within a 1/4 mile. The guard zone with alarm worked great also for use in the FOG.

Would I recommend this for anyone wanting radar... ABSOLUTELY! ;)
