Nice day for the first boat ride of the year. Got to try out the BR24 radar I
installed over the winter. This is a whole new era in marine radar. Easy
to install, instant on, very little power draw, no microwave hazard, and
so easy to operate. (and not expensive)

Approaching the dock on the Potomac side of St. Clements
Island. This radar works really well up close.

 
using radar/chart overlay


Here are a few Structure Scan screen shots also from April 7.

Cobb, I love your posts. I love my BR24 too. I don't use it too often but when I do I'm glad to have it. How did you set up for the overlay? I assume you have to install a heading sensor somewhere, somehow? How bad is it to do?

Yes you need a heading sensor. I an using a KVH Autocomp 1000, which hooks up to the HDS with NMEA 0183.
Not at all difficult to install. Can be mounted most anywhere (mine is on the floor of the center console).
But they are expensive. The KVH is around $400. The NMEA 2000 models even more, plus you need a NMEA 2000 network.
