While SIMRAD and Lowrance have done a massive amount of promotion on their 3G and 4G small boat radar systems, Humminbird is hard to find information on. I have seen screen prints of radar images from both, and feel either would provide enough guidance to get me home when the fog rolls in. I fish with two elderly gentlemen, one has a pacemaker/defibrillator and the other a cochlear implant. SIMRAD and Lowrance's promotional material lead one to think that the radiation given off by "old school X band radar" can be very harmful. I have a Humminbird 998C SI unit on my boat and love it. I would love to be able to purchase the Humminbird 21Rd4Kw and just plug it into the 998C, but I don't want to lose my best friends. If the electronics implanted or attached to my friends can be damaged by the 4kw X band radar, I will need to seriously consider switching to Lowrance. Does anyone have information that will help me decide ?
