1.2 The Pathfinder Radar PLUS Display
When a scanner is connected and the radar is in Transmit mode, the radar
picture provides a map-like representation of the area in which the radar is
operating. Typically, your ship’s position is at the centre of the display, and its
dead ahead bearing is indicated by a vertical heading line, known as the Ship’s
Heading Marker (SHM).
The radar picture can be viewed with a variety of fixed or customised range
scales. A status bar at the top of the radar image displays range, current
heading and mode indicators for the various options you can set.
An example radar picture is shown on the next page, with example radar
