The GMR 1224 xHD2 12 kW high-definition 4-foot open-array radar is for serious seafarers of large yachts and sport fishing boats with limited space for an open array radar. This is our most powerful 4-foot radar, providing more sensitivity, more target detail and more consistent target positioning than our other 4-foot open array radars. If you want the best open array for limited space, this combination of high power and compact sweep makes it the perfect option for cruising and fishing offshore, overnight and in foggy, limited or no visibility, conditions.
xHD2 Radar with Narrow 1.8 Degree Beam
This high-definition radar with 12 kW of power delivers excellent range, up to 72 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 beamwidths. The result is this radar paints a clear, concise image of the shoreline, other vessels and impending weather on your Garmin chartplotter. 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 72 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.
