This is the only 6-foot 25 kW open-array radar that can fully integrate with Garmin
chartplotters. It will provide radar data overlay onto your charts when used with autopilot or heading sensor. The GMR 2526 xHD2 has the power to deliver excellent target separation and amazing image clarity. It also features our Auto Bird Gain setting, which helps locate flocks of birds at the water’s surface and helps signal the location of game fish. Pulse Expansion setting allows you to maximize energy on targets and increase target size. Dynamic Auto Gain and Sea Filter automatically adjust to your surroundings for optimal performance in all conditions. Dual radar capability allows more than 1 radar running at the same time. Dual range capability shows close and long range at the same time. Range: 96 nautical miles. Easy to install and easy to use, that’s the power of simple.
High-power xHD2 Radar with Narrow 1.1 Degree Beam
Our most powerful 6-foot high-definition radar with 25 kW of power, delivers excellent range, up to 96 nautical miles, even in fog or rain. Its narrow 1.1 degree horizontal beamwidth means it can pick out weaker targets further off in the distance than wider beam-widths. The result is this radar paints a clear, concise image of the shoreline, other vessels, and impending weather on your Garmin chart-plotter. You get consistent target positions, excellent target separation and reliable operation. Its 8-bit true color imagery also helps you discriminate large targets from small ones and enhances target separation. Rotation speeds of 24 and 48 rpm with a max range scale of 96 nautical miles.
Provides the ability to increase the duration of the transmit pulse, which helps maximize the energy on targets. This provides larger target size on the chartplotter.
Auto Bird Gain
Fishermen know, when you find birds at the water’s surface, you’ll also find fish. To further improve your fishing experience, use Auto Bird Gain, which helps to locate birds at the water’s surface where baitfish are also likely to be found.
A historical “trail” is left on the screen to help you quickly and easily identify moving targets and potential collision threats.
Single radar antenna is capable of providing split screen images on your chartplotter for both close and long range.
Dual Radar Support
Provides redundancy and the ability for each display unit on the boat to select data from 1 of 2 different radar sources.
Dynamic Auto Gain
Dynamic Auto Gain automatically adjusts gain levels to optimum settings for harbors, near shore and offshore in open waters.
Dynamic Sea Filter
Dynamic Sea Filter automatically adjusts gain to calm, medium and rough sea conditions.
Overlays the radar image on the chartplotter’s map page.
MARPA Target Tracking
Mini-automatic radar plotting aid (MARPA) tracks up to 10 selected targets, helping you keep track of other vessels and avoid collisions.
Set the safety zone and receive an alarm when an object enters the zone.
VRM and EBL
Variable range markers (VRM) and electronic bearing lines (EBL) allow rapid measurements of distance and bearing to vessels and land.
The Power of Simple…Radar
This radar is designed to be easy to install and use. There are no complex user settings to fuss around with, just install it and start using. You can rely on the GMR xHD2 to provide reliable, optimum performance in all conditions.
Vertical Range Scaling
Fits the selected radar range to the vertical size of your display to show more forward looking radar returns on screen and make it easier to interpret target distances.
Dual Range with Overlay
Single radar antenna is capable of providing split screen images on your chartplotter side-by-side, with independent range setting and controls for both close and long range. One or both ranges can also be viewed as a chart overlay.
