Garmin unveils the GMR xHD3 series open-array radars


A first for Garmin magnetron radar, the xHD3 series incorporates scan averaging that helps filter out sea clutter and interference on the display to provide mariners with enhanced consistent targets. Target size processing utilizes pulse expansion to help optimize on-screen object shapes for better interpretation at all range scales, and true echo trails display a historical “trail” of boats on the water, removing relative motion influence to help quickly identify moving targets and potential collision threats.

“We are excited to build on the foundation of our previous open array radars and bring more premium features that will appeal to mariners of all types. Whether you’re cruising overnight, fishing offshore or just out for the day, Garmin’s new xHD3 open-array radars look far and wide to deliver an incredibly clear picture of what’s out there, maximizing situational awareness and giving you more peace of mind every time you leave the dock.” –Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales

The sea is calling

Available with 4, 12 or 25kW of power, the new GMR xHD3 radar series boasts a 100-knot wind rating1, bringing commercial-grade weather performance to recreational boaters. The high-performance 4’ or 6’ antennas offer new levels of confidence, clarity and performance for mariners cruising or fishing offshore. The xHD3 series radars have rotation speeds of 24 and 48 rpm for fast redraw rates, with a detection range that extends from 20 meters up to 72 nautical miles (4kW models) or 96 nautical miles (12 and 25kW models).

For fishing enthusiasts, the xHD3 open arrays boast auto bird gain and a bird mode preset feature to help locate flocks of birds at the water’s surface, often an indication of where the fish might be. With its low-noise and reliable operation, anglers can troll the water’s surface without disturbing their targets.

Navigating the waters

Night or day, foggy or clear, mariners can traverse waters with confidence thanks to the dual-range with overlay feature of the GMR xHD3 series that allows for a single antenna to provide split screen side-by-side images on a compatible chartplotter, with independent settings for both close and long range. A radar overlay can also be added on top of a chart view to clearly see any differences between the chart and what the radar is seeing2. The new series also allows customers to use the guard zone feature on compatible chartplotters. When enabled, this feature can alert boaters when an object comes within a boater-defined area around the vessel.
