DRS6A X-Class

Pushing the boundaries of what is possible with conventional Radar technology, the DRS6A X-Class marks yet another leap forward for FURUNO. Enhanced in almost every aspect, the DRS6A X-Class Radar features improved short range detection, as well as an impressive long range detection. Utilizing technology previously only available on rugged commercial-grade radars, the DRS6A X-Class offers stunning performance and reliability. For the fisherman, the new "Bird Mode" on NavNet TZtouch/TZtouch2 gives you incredible bird detection performance.

Spot flocks of birds far away, incredible performance without compromise

Bird echoes at 5 NM, the echoes can be distinctly separated from the nearby vessel in motion. The vessel shows a straight and clear echo trail, unlike the bird echoes that are identifiable by their random motion.

At 4 NM the bird echoes are extremely clear, and distinctly visible compared with other targets.
With echo trails, it's possible to discern individual birds movements.
* Echo Trails are only available on NavNet TZtouch


Long and short range performance improved!

With an excellent long range performance, you can even spot land masses in detail at great distances.
