Going to put radar on my boat, and would like others opinions. I have a Garmin 4210 chartplotter now, so will go with their radar also. Am looking at the 18" HD or the 24" HD. Was wondering if others thought the 24" had enough benefits over the 18" to justify the cost difference...Thanks for your input..

I have the Garmin 4210 with the 18 inch HD radar. It is new this season and all I can say is that it is awesome. Some complain that the Garmin radars dont have the individual tuning controls that other or older radars do and they are right. But I have to say that isnt a problem because I dont need them. The HD is so sharp and so accurate that I really have no urge to tune it at all. This is after using it in 20 knot winds and in major rain storms. Once you see the HD you will never go back. I dont know what a 24 would give that an 18 doesnt - probably better range, sharper definition, etc. but the 18 is already very very good.
