If you are looking to add radar to your Garmin marine network the GMR 1226 xHD2 6’ open array would be the best option Garmin has to offer; but make sure first of all you have room for a 6’ open array. The GMR 1226 xHD2 Radar is an impressive piece of equipment that was designed to be easy to install and use. There are no complex user settings to enter, for the most part just turn it on and start using it.
The 12 kW power and 6’ array GMR 1226 xHD2 has a maximum range of 72 nautical miles, and it has rotational speeds of 24 or 48 rpm which deliver a fast scan time that cuts the distance a vessel can travel between scans. As every serious fisherman will tell you, the ability to see birds, enhances your chances to catch fish and the Garmin GMR 1226 xHD2 Radar & Pedestal has a “Bird” Mode that improves your fishing experience by locating birds at the water’s surface where the baitfish are located. The “Echo Trail” which can be provided by the GMR 1226 xHD can be a very valuable tool when assessing the possibility of a collision threat from a moving target. It is also possible using the GMR 1226 xHD Radar and its “Dual Range” setting to view split screen images from the radar showing both close and long range images.
The GMR 1226 xHD2 Radar is definitely not for the small boater or one with a small budget but if you are in the market for one of the best open array radars on the market for your Garmin Multi Function Display or network then the best you can find is the GMR 1226 xHD2 Radar and Pedestal.
