    Comments about GPSMAP 741xs / GMR 18HD Radar Value Pack:

    This radar /chartplotter combo is a great way to get radar on your boat and done by yourself. I installed the radome on a new mast mount also from West Marine. Which was also pretty easy to install once your up on the mast. The hard part are the stainless steel pop rivets....get some strong person to grip the gun. Once I had the radome up and wired it was easily hooked to the power. It truly is plug and play. I had radar overlaying on my charts.. The densitometer is an 8 pin and you may want to research which way to go with the sonar part. West Marine helped me get the proper parts and extension wires. In Puget Sound I can now see the ferries! Well the sirens aren't so loud! Radar is a necessity in the San Juans! Pretty decent price to get radar and chart plotter with sonar!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Service was extrodinary from the Shilshole store for getting me the mast mount in time.

      Comments about GPSMAP 741xs / GMR 18HD Radar Value Pack:

      This chart plotter and radar unit is the best option for radar overlay in this price range and probably higher ones. I am a sailor in the Puget Sound and radar is a must. I am not a real electrical kind of person and this was easy once I got the radome mounted on the mast the wiring run through the boat and hooked up. It truly is plug and play. Garmin does have it going on!

          Comments about GPSMAP 741xs / GMR 18HD Radar Value Pack:

          This came shipped in a pretty big box because of the Radar, but arrived safe with no damage. The radar doesn't come with a mount of any kind, so be aware that you will need to provide one. That was the hardest part, mounting it to my T-top, but fired right up. The installation of the MFD was very easy. Turned the unit on, and all commands are right there, hard glass touch screen that doesn't smudge too bad. The user's manual has a horrible layout, just use the quick start guide, but for advanced operations, you will need to use the user's manual, but good luck with that. The unit has a 7" Screen, but is only about 4 inches deep, very compact, and solid unit. Just ordered the Airmar Chirp transducer to use with it. This item has it all, now Garmin needs a structure scan, and they will take over the market, this product is just that good.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I waited 6 months for this product to be released from Garmin, and once it was, West Marine honored the price I bought it for and I got mine, even before my local store, they asked me to bring mine in so they could see it!
