Default NEW Furuno FR8 Series Radar

Anybody have any experience with this unit? I know its new, but it looks pretty sweet.

- 12.1" SVGA color TFT LCD with echo colors of 32 levels
- Advanced auto modes to automatically adjust gain, tuning and AC rain/sea for delivering the best available pictures
- 48 rpm antenna for high-speed craft as well as for river uses
- True motion echo trail
- Display Modes: Head-up, Course-up*, North-up*, True motion**
- 3 programable settings can be selected to give the best performance in different sea conditions
It also has video output so that it can be displayed on a TV or other monitor.

Sweet looking but for $9500. for the 12kw. I think I would rather have a Nav Net vx2 and save $4000 I wish they would use a Hi Deff screen thou!
