    Samyung radar system-gctid401577

    My old Furuno 1831 was in the shop but I have been told it is not repairable. They have offered me a Samyung SMR-3700 10" colour radar display and 24" dome for under $3000.00.

    Anyone know anything about this unit? It's from Korea but what isn't these days.

    And no, that's not a typo, it is Samyung, not Samsung. Maybe it's his brother!!

    Never heard of them.

    How about something like this:

      Also, who told you the Furuno wasn't repairable? Furuno, or the shop offering you the Samyung?

        I sent the radar to the Furuno USA repair center. They said the main CPU board was gone and there were not parts. I found a used board on e-bay that the seller said was good and sent that and the radar back to Furuno.

        They just called me and said that board too is bad so I got hosed. They told me my radar is not repairable.

          Personally I would pass and go with a Garmin or Raymarine. I have a Garmin 5212 and a 4210 {one for each station) with the 18" HD dome and I love it. Radar overlay on the GPS map, HD so I can see small items like carp pot bouys and logs in the water, plus target and AIS tracking and the famous Garmin support. I would hate to have to call Korea for support. The 10" Garmin with the dome is about that same price, if not cheaper. The Samyung doesn't sound like a great deal to me.

            SAMYUNG RADAR. ??? If it was $30 but not $3000.

            There too many better ways to use $3000.

              Check out ebay, I bought a spare R10XX for $35.00, works great.

              $3000.00 is a lot for something you rarely use.
