Radars

I am currently about to fit a second radar, the wee JRC is a good enough unit but
a) at the wrong side so that you cant see it unless you sit in the pass seat
b) does not have a very clear display
so I am going to fit a Raymarine scanner that plugs into the C80 display that I already have.
The question is this if I sit them beside each other i.e move the JRC one to the port side and put the Raymarine one in the middle at the same height will they interfere with each other and will I lose clarity from them bouncing off each other.
I have looked and cannot seem to find the answer, but i'm sure some of you clever guys on here will know
Cheers
Andy

Not sure about them interacting. Are they both on the same band? and at the same height (scanner).
Other thing to concider is have you enough power available. They draw quite alot of power out the poor battery. Best to check your alternator output.

Most people only dream of fitting radar, ohh to have the problem of where to put the second one...

Don't Do It!!

If you have them alongside each other you will have lots of interferance problems and probably cause damage to both units.
The best way will be to mount one above the other.
Good luck,
Mark

Thanks Mark , looks like I'll be fabbing up a stand. Power wise I have plenty and don't plan to run both units at once, just keep the JRC as back up.....and it would be a bugger to strip out leaving me a hole in the consoul that I would have to fill with something
The C series displays are great as you can decide what you want/don't want displayed. I am a big Furuno fan but did not like their Navnet stuff as it was quite hard to operate where as the C80 it dead easy with great menus.
Cheers
Andy
