Default Raymarine Digital vs HD Radar

Looking to add a radar dome to my C90W package. What is the difference between the digital domes and the HD domes, other than the $1000 upcharge? I plan to install either an 18" or 24" dome on my 26' center console this winter and the deals on the digital units are pretty good right now.

HD digital domes will show you 128 color returns, standard is just yellow. also has some preset algorithims for Harbor, Bouy, coastal, and offshore modes

Is it worth the extra money? My experience has only been with black and white units up to now. Is there enough difference between the yellow and multi color units to make it useful?

You can also set your dome array to spin at 4800 rpms!

Check with Raymarine first, not sure that the C90W fully utilizes the HD capabilities. Love my HD though, no point for comparison but it has served me well, I have the 24". I have 2-E120W's.
