The Furuno 1815 incorporates some of the company’s latest radar features in a standalone color LCD unit, including Fast Target Tracking, which allows manual or automatic tracking of as many as 10 targets.
In True View mode, echoes stay consistent on the display while the boat is turning, so targets don’t have to update after the turn. Adjustable colors allow viewing the 8.4-inch display in most lighting conditions. The unit also can display as many as 100 AIS targets when interfaced with an AIS receiver. $2,495, including a 19-inch 4-kW antenna. Furuno USA, Camas, Washington, (360) 834-9300. furunousa.com
