GMR™ 626 xHD2 Open Array Radar and Pedestal

  • 6-foot Open Array Radar with 6 kW of Power

    • 6 kW high-definition radar with 6-foot open array
    • High sensitivity with 1.1 degree horizontal beamwidth for consistent target positions, excellent target separation and reliable operation
    • Dual range radar with dual radar support
    • No complex user settings; easy to install and start using
    • Quiet rotation and reliable operation

    The GMR 626 xHD2 6 kW high-definition 6-foot open-array radar is designed for serious seafarers of larger yachts and sport fishing boats over 50-feet who want the advantages of the tight beamwidth of a 6-foot antenna. This is the first step up from our 4-foot open array radars. The 6-foot antenna focuses the beamwidth down to just 1.1 degree and that increases resolution for a more detailed radar image. Its high-sensitivity and consistent target positioning makes it perfect for cruising and fishing near shore, offshore, overnight and in foggy, limited or no visibility, conditions.

    High-power xHD2 Radar with Narrow 1.1 Degree Beam

    This high-definition 6 kW radar has the power to deliver excellent range, up to 72 nautical miles, even in fog or rain. Its narrow 1.1 degree horizontal beamwidth picks out targets well off in the distance. It paints a clear 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.

    Pulse Expansion

    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.

    Echo Trails

    A historical “trail” is left on the screen to help you quickly and easily identify moving targets and potential collision threats.

    Dual Range

    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.

    Radar Overlay

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Vertical Range Scaling

    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.
