Selecting a Location
When selecting a location to install the GMR 600/1200 series radar, consider the following:
• An ideal mounting location is high above the keel line of the ship with a minimal part of the structure or rigging blocking the radar beam.
Obstructions in the path of the radar beam may cause blind and shadow sectors, or generate false echoes. The higher the installation position,
the farther the radar can detect targets.
• Avoid mounting on the same level as smoke stacks, horizontal spreaders, or crosstrees on a mast.
• Do not install the radar near heat sources where it may be exposed to smoke or hot air from smoke stacks or heat from lights.
• The mounting surface or platform should be sturdy enough to support the weight of the radar and any inertial forces, as flat as possible, and
parallel with the water line.
• Garmin recommends mounting the radar out of range of personnel (vertical beam width above head height). When properly installed and
operated, the use of this radar conforms to the requirements of ANSI/IEEE C95.1-1992 Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human
Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields.
IEC 60936-1 clause 3-27.1 states maximum distances from the antenna at which Radio Frequency (RF) levels can be expected.

GMR 1206 (100W/m squared = 111 in. [2.8 m]) (10W/m squared = 343 in. [8.7 m])
Caution: When the radar is transmitting, do not look directly at the antenna at close range (the eyes are the most sensitive part of the body to
electromagnetic energy).
• A compass safe distance must be maintained between the compass and the radar. The compass safe distance is measured from the center
point of the compass to the nearest point on the radar.
◦ Standard compass = 35 7/16 in. (90 cm)
◦ Standby Steering and Emergency compasses = 31 1/2 in. (80 cm)
• Mount other electronics and cables more than 7 ft. (2 m) from the path of a radar beam. A radar beam can spread 25° vertically above and
below the radiating element of the radar. For vessels with higher bow angles at cruise speed, you can lower the angle so that the beam points
slightly downward to the waterline while at rest. Shims may be used as necessary.
12.5°
12.5°
• Install the radar away from antennas or other electronics. GPS antennas should be located above or below the radar beam path of the radar.
Mount at least 3 ft. (1 m) from any equipment transmitting or cables carrying radio signals, such as VHF radios, cables, and antennas. In the
case of SSB radios, the distance should be increased to 7 ft. (2 m).
GMR 600/1200 Series Installation Instructions

Mounting the Radar
Mount the radar with either end pointed toward the bow. Ensure it is mounted along the Bow-Stern Axis line indicated on the GMR
400/600/1200 Series Mounting Template. If the end with the hatch is pointed toward the bow, the Front of Boat Offset setting on the chartplotter
must be set to 180° (Figure 4). To adjust the Front of Boat Offset on the chartplotter, see page 7.
To mount the radar:
1. (Skip to step two if you are using a pre-drilled Garmin compatible Furuno® or Raymarine® mount.) Determine a suitable mounting location
and tape the Mounting Template in place. The Mounting Template has two hole patterns: Option A and Option B. Determine the most
appropriate patterns from the two patterns available on the Mounting Template (Option A or Option B). Use a 1/2 in. (13 mm) bit to drill the
four mounting holes.
2. Hoist the radar into position using the supplied strap. Position the strap over the ends of the antenna mount as shown in Figure 5. Ensure
that you position the strap as close to the radar as possible.
3. Fasten the radar to the mounting surface using the M10 hex nuts, spring washers, and flat washers in the order shown in Figure 6. The M10
nuts should be torqued to 130 lbf-in (11 lbf-ft) (1.5 kgf-m).

Installing the Power and Network Cables
Route the cable as needed, based on the type of mount you are using.
When installing the power and network cables, consider the following:
• To ensure safety, use the appropriate tie-wraps, fasteners, and sealant to secure the cable along a route and through any bulkhead or deck.
Avoid running the cable near moving objects, high-heat sources, or through doorways and bilges.
• Avoid installing the cable next to or parallel to other cables, such as radio antenna lines or power cables. This is essential to avoid
interference to or from other equipment. If this is not possible, shield the cable with metal conduit or a form of EMI shielding.
• You may need to drill a 1 1/4 in. (31.7 mm) hole for routing the power/network cable. Garmin provides a rubber cable grommet to cover the
cable installation hole.
◦ The grommet does NOT provide a waterproof seal. To waterproof the grommet, apply a marine sealant.
◦ You can purchase additional cable grommets through Garmin or a Garmin dealer.
• Use the optional field-installable RJ-45 network connector (included) to create a custom-length Garmin Marine Network cable if needed
(see page 8).

replacement will be made at no charge to the customer for parts or labor, provided that the customer shall be responsible for any transportation
cost. This warranty does not cover failures due to abuse, misuse, accident, or unauthorized alteration or repairs.
This product is intended to be used only as a travel aid and must not be used for any purpose requiring precise measurement of direction,
distance, location, or topography. Garmin makes no warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of map data in this product.

WHETHER RESULTING FROM THE USE, MISUSE, OR INABILITY TO USE THIS PRODUCT OR FROM DEFECTS IN THE
