I just went thru the process of looking for a good used radar unit. I tried to stay away from older crt type displays and found a good. Raymarine unit with an lcd display from a fellow barner. Google and the hull truth are your best friends.

The 1621 is a good unit, and believe it is not a crt display.

I have the 1722 and love it. It replaced my older Furuno, which was crt.. Look around most marinas, furuno radars dominate.....

I Believe thats the unit i have and it gets the job done. Yes there are better newer models out there but if the price is fair i wouldnt hesitate cause mine has saved me a bunch of times. I have no problems seeing the screen either. A very nice little unit with low thrills but it does get the job done.

Wasn't sure if this one was crt . I looked at so many used radars this week I forget what I saw/read. I ended with a sl70 raymarine.

If it did not come with a users manual, you can download one off the Furuno website...

I had one in my first 4 boats...let it go with the 4th one as the 5th boat came with a Raymarine. I liked it and I could see the clam stakes and crab trap floats in the bay zoomed into 1/4 mile and properly adjusted. It would pick up tugs and barges on the 4 mile setting with no problem....some guys get hung up on 24 or 48 miles radars..unless the antenna is mounted 50 feet up, you arent seeing that far and who cares...I was always concerned with what was close to me and I was never in a position to look for a flock of birds 10 miles away etc...
