    Sounds like a great price, but I haven't been shopping radars for a while. Any idea what the differences are between a 1622 and your new one?

    your going to like that thing, mines a relic compared to yours (1621) but I still wouldn't go without it. I like the fact that yours can zoom to 1/8mi, mine goes 1/4 max. furuno, best there is for sure. also the waypoint/nema interface on your is sweet!

    Good price, nice simple unit to give you peace of mind. As far as the 21, 22, 23 I think they are just newer versions of the same radar, 22 & 23 have a little bit higher transmitter power. Basic but hey it's collision avoidance insurance right?!!

    Along the lines of the 1621-22-23 all being similar, does anyone know for sure if the units are interchangable using the same dome? I've got an old 1621 that works ok but see the newer ones advertised from time to time without the dome at pretty reasonable prices...if I could just change out the unit and leave the dome and wiring as is, I'd probably do it..also, there is a mark 2 series of the 1621..same question about the dome and wiring here.
    thanks,

    What about the model 1715? It's a couple of hundred more, and from what I can tell goes out to 24NM from the 1623's 18NM, and has what seems to be a lower profile radome. I am oing to get one of these 2 units very soon, and is there much difference between the 2, or is the cheaper one the way to go?

    For one, the 1715 has a 7" screen as opposed to the 6" on the 1623.
    14 range scales to the 1623's 13.
    The radome is 18" vs 15."
    And then the obvious difference is the range...24miles vs 16 miles

    I can help you when your ready to purchase
