RYA Radar

Radar is probably the most versatile of all electronic navigation aids, but the best results are only obtained when you know how to use all the functions correctly. It is not an all-seeing eye, and can only mislead those who do not understand its controls, allow for its limitations, or interpret its picture accurately.
