Product Description
furuno The Furuno 1623 is a high-contrast LCD radar for pleasure and smaller craft. The display unit has a 6" high-definition Silver Bright LCD screen which displays echoes in four shades of gray. The FU1623 also offers an improved short-range target detection feature by using narrower pulse lengths and dual IF bandwidths. Standard features include an EBL (Electronic Bearing Line), EVRM (Electronic Variable Range Marker), Echo Trail, and Guard Zone Alarm. Automatic control of tuning, sensitivity (gain), and anti-clutter combine optimum performance with ease of operation. The 1623 offers four different operation modes: Normal, Off-Center, Zoom, and Watch mode. In the Watch mode, the antenna is stopped and the transmission is off so that the screen displays nav data only. The radar wakes up at a specified time interval (5, 10, or 20 min.) and operates for 10 scans. If targets enter or leave the Guard Zone, an audible alarm sounds, the radar resumes normal operation, and the Watch mode is cancelled. Ships with display unit, radome antenna, 10 meter antenna cable, power cable, and installation and operating manuals. 12 - 32V DC. Measures 8.9"H x 7.3"W x 4.4"D. Two-year warranty.

          Comments about Furuno 1623 15" Radar Dome:

          This unit has a lot of "bang for the buck". The only downside is the installation guidance, ie: "Keep the display unit out of direct sunlight." On a unit advertised as suitable for sailboats? And the recommendation to keep the display unit at least 0.5m away from a compass? Have Furuno ever looked at how a typical sailboat cockpit is laid out? On my boat there is no way to meet these requirements/recommendations and also place the display where it is useful to the helmsman.

            Comments about Furuno 1623 15" Radar Dome:

            Unit works well for most boating applications. Unit is made of plastic and not very durable. I have broken two dome covers and each one cost an outrageous $150-$200!

            • Q:

              Does this item come with the LCD radar display as well as the scanner unit? Meaning does this item contain all parts necessary to have a working radar set-up on a small watercraft? Thank you.
