Garmin GMR Fantom 18

The 18-inch, 40 W solid-state Garmin GMR Fantom 18 dome radar features MotionScope technology, which uses the Doppler effect to detect and highlight moving targets to help you avoid potential collisions. Fully integrates with select Garmin chartplotters.

High-power 40 W Radar

This 40-watt solid-state radar has a range from 20’ to 48 nautical miles, even in fog or rain. It offers rotation speeds of 24 RPM for reduced power consumption and 48 RPM for fast screen updates.

MotionScope Doppler Technology

MotionScope uses the Doppler effect to detect moving targets and highlight them in different colors so you can navigate around other boats or severe weather — or toward fishing spots where birds feed at the surface.

Target Size

Allows you to adjust the size of objects on the radar image.

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 flocks of birds at the water’s surface where baitfish are also likely to be found.

Echo Trails

A fading “trail” is left on the screen to help you quickly and easily identify moving targets and potential collision threats. Trails are corrected for your boat’s rotation when an autopilot or heading sensor is connected to your Garmin network.

Dual Range

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.

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 to your surroundings for optimal performance in all conditions.

Dynamic Sea Filter

Dynamic Sea Filter automatically adjusts gain to changing sea conditions with user options for low, medium or high filtering.

Radar Overlay

Overlays the radar image on the chartplotter’s map page. An autopilot or heading sensor is recommended for best results.

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.

Guard Zone

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.

It’s Your Time

All Garmin radars are designed to be easy to install and easy to use. There are no complex user settings to adjust; just install your radar and start using it. You can rely on the GMR Fantom radar to provide reliable, optimum performance in all conditions. Because, it’s your time.
