Default Navnet vx2

Is the radar on the Furuno NavnetVx2 a true color radar? Also I heard that there are directions on Furuno's website as to how to set up your radar to detect birds, where is can this information be found on their website?

Thanks

I have the Furuno 1734 C Vx2 4 kw radar. Yes, it's in color. What do you mean by TRUE COLOR?

By true color I mean that if there is a storm will the stronger storm cells be darker on the screen than the lighter storm cells? etc.

Thanks for the link. Now for the other part of the question, is the navnetVx2 with a 12kw radar "true color"?

Echoes are shown in red, yellow, or green in order of descending strength of the return if the display is set for "multi-color." Other options are for yellow or green (single color) echoes.

Here's what Furuno says about the difference between "color" and "true color" radars:

" With a true color radar the return signal strength from the target(s) determines the color represented on the display for the target(s). Strong targets are depicted in warm colors, such as red. Weak targets are represented in cool colors such as yellows and greens.

"A good example would be observing a thunder storm with your true color radar. With the radar properly set up and adjusted you can see strong cells within the storm depicted in reds. Areas of the storm with light rain are depicted in yellows and greens.

"A "color" radar represents all targets in one color, no matter what the signal strength is.

"Note: All Furuno color radars are true color radars. "
