Hey HRPA, just placed an order for one from Heartland's for $79.99. I figure it's cheap enough to try. Could be the beginnings of our own "shootout"...

Mine is on the way. I will test it's acuracy in my truck. If this thing works, it could be a good way to get free rides in people's boat!!! Just ask them if they want their boat radared.

Looks like a fun toy!! We expect a full report from you guys
Its hard to believe that it would be that accurate though. But if its not, maybe it will make your GPS readings seem slow and be right on with your speedo

Well I guess they won't be any different than the GPS's which are only as accurate as we allow them to be OR prove them to be...Otherwise they say what we say they say....

After talking to people & being told how fast their boat is I ask if they want to radar it. Only people that have taken me up on it other that close friends have been people with waverunners. Most answers I get are boat not running very good right now.

We have a Falcon hand held with a set of tuned forks (55MPH 65 MPH) and my wife got me the new little cordless for Chmas.

Put the forks to it and it was on the money.

PS The little one is great fun on long trips (road). The jerk in the left lane doing 90 skins up his leg getting to the breaks... SO get out the hell out of his way!

Oh by the way 10 years ago, I would check a boats speed for free. After the owner made 6 or so passes and never hit 60 yet 70 MPH, I would charge him $20.00 to keep MY mouth shut
