Double the power

Marine electronics manufacturer Garmin has introduced its highest powered solid-state radar yet to the market, offering 250W of pulse compression power.

With more than double the power of the existing Fantom 124/126, the new Fantom 254/256 solid-state radars yield the best combined short- and long-range target detection performance for serious boaters and anglers.

New features, including scan-to-scan averaging, which reduces the sea clutter and interferences in the display view for a clear, visual scope of water ahead, and improved MARPA with Automatic Acquisition which lets users simultaneously trigger and track up to 30 targets with no user prompting on all returns, boundary zones, and guard zones. Both provide improved target precision and more visibility of what lies ahead to further a user’s situational awareness on the water.

“We know that the demands of offshore navigation require the most reliable and feature-rich marine radars, which is why we are excited to offer customers our highest-powered solid-state radar series on the market,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of global consumer sales. “The increased power and pulse compression technology of the new Fantom 254/256 radars gives best-in-class target detection range and image resolution, making them the ideal radar solution for anyone desiring to equip their vessel with the highest end marine tech. New features, like scan-to-scan averaging and MARPA Automatic Acquisition, optimise ease-of-use to better explore everything from shorelines to open ocean.”

The 4-foot Fantom 254 or 6-foot Fantom 256 open-array are available now.
