Amazon has a scanner on their site, has some info but no units for sale. Heard rumours it was coming out early 2012. Going to upgrade this year & was interested in what they had to offer.

http://store.humminbird.com/products/519444/AS_12RD2KW

Shows it will be ready for shipping on 3/15/12. Here's a real novice question - I have never had radar, with an item like this, and the compatible HB screen, do you have to also pay monthly fees or service fees or contracts, ot is it just a direct feed like gps? Sounds like a dumb question, but like I said I have never had any radar in a boat before, just curious?

I finally got my Humminbird Radar yesterday. I got the larger radome. Mounting it up this weekend. I unpackaged it, and it looks great! I would assume stores selling them will have them soon.

I would like to hear your opinion after you've used it for awhile.

1500$ for a 12 inch radome......preposterous

Sure thing! At the very least it has to be a little better than the 1985 Raytheon that came with the boat.

After ten months, are you still happy with your Humminbird radar?
Thanks,
Keith

Yes I am! It has been flawless for me since day 1. Sorry for the delayed response. For some reason I never got the e-mail or notification of a response on this thread.
