One Star

  • Summary: Unit stopped working after six months. Sent back to Garmin for re-build. Again stopped working. Nothing but trouble. Explore other alternatives for vessel radar as this one can not be counted on.

Water in the Garmin 18 HD radar

Tom H, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought a new unit and it worked great for awhile. Then got an error code - then it went away and it worked again. Now I got error code 6 and error code 1. Looked on the internet and see that several have had water inside the unit.

Garmin's GMR 18HD quite noisy.

Purchased at Amazon, Amazon

  • Summary: Haven't really tried the unit out yet, but was somewhat shocked at the amount of noise this radar made when turned on. Sounds like a turbine winding up. Time will tell if it otherwise does a great job.

Prone to Water Intrusion

C. Reed, Amazon

Garmin is the best

Rob, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the GMR 18 HD radar to be displayed on my Garmin 4210 multifunction chartplotter. These are not toys but rather very sofisticated tools for any boat subject to fog and at night. Having the radar overlay onto my chartpotter is fantastic.

Garmin GMR-18 HD Marine Radar

Mr. J. Dahlgren Sr., Amazon
18 November 2011
  • Summary: I have used this radar system for a couple of years mostly for my Coast Guard Auxiliary patrols including Search & Rescue. It has never failed me and the size is a welcome addition aboard my Parker 23 foot patrol boat. I highly recommend it.
