While this unit's MSRP runs at $1,415 with the 15 meter cable., but have found it new for $1,059.99 without the cable.
We picked the RD218 for a few different reasons:
- Our boat's multifunction display is Raymarine
- Our desired scanning distance is only 7 miles, and this units maximum is 24 nautical miles
- Our low power consumption needs must be adhered to and this unit draws only 2.3 amps per hour in active mode and 0.75 amps per hour in passive mode
Major win for us! Our Radar system is now complete!
Now all we need to do is install it. :)
