Pedro,
I installed the Raymarine Quantum 2 Doppler radars last year. I’m very happy with the display.

Furball did you do the install yourself?
Was it straightforward?

No, I had it installed. My radar is pretty straight forward.
Power through a helm switch and data hard wired to the 9” Axiom. Data is shared over network from there to a 12” Axiom.
