I had the same strange blotches showing on mine the first time I used it also. Finally realized I just needed the fat chick on the bow to sit down...

But seriously, now you just have to learn to fine tune the settings: gain, A/C Rain and A/C Sea. You just need some experiance adjusting the radar to the conditions and your preferences. troll posted a neat set of instructions on setting the gain and filters, should be easy to find by searching his posts in this forum.
