GMR 404/406 Owner’s Manual
Basic Operation > Understanding Radar
Basic Operation
This section covers the features and operation of the GMR 404/406.
Understanding Radar
The GMR 404/406 transmits a narrow beam of microwave energy
in a rotating 360° pattern. When the transmitted energy contacts a
target, some of that energy is reflected and returned to the scanner.
The scanner collects the returned energy to process and display.
Your GMR 404/406 is operated and adjusted using controls on your
Garmin Marine Network chartplotter. You can view radar data on the
Radar Page or as an overlay on the Map Page. All radar controls are
accessible from both pages.
Caution: The GMR 404/406 transmits microwave energy that
has the potential to be harmful to humans and animals. Before
beginning radar transmission, verify that the area around the radar
is clear. The radar transmits a beam approximately 12° above and
below a line extending horizontally from the center of the scanner.
Avoid looking directly at the scanner, because the eyes are the
most susceptible part of the body.
When the area surrounding the scanner is clear, press and hold
FCTN. The message “Do you want to begin radar transmission?” is
shown. Select Yes, and then press ENTER.
When you turn on the radar, the status bar shows the message “Radar
Warming Up” with a countdown to Standby Mode. The countdown
also appears in the middle of the Radar Page. When the countdown
reaches 0 (zero), the “Hold FCTN to transmit” message appears.
As a safety feature, the radar enters standby mode after it warms
up. This gives the operator an opportunity to verify that the area
around the scanner is clear before beginning radar transmission. It is
important to remember that the microwave energy transmitted by the
scanner can potentially be dangerous.
GMR 404/406 Owner’s Manual
Basic Operation > Understanding Radar
Before transmission begins, the message “Spinning Up” is shown
while the radar antenna reaches nominal rotation speed. After the
message disappears, the radar begins painting an image.
Understanding the Radar Display
The Radar Page shows a status bar along the top, user-configurable
digital navigation data down the right side, a Heading Line, and
Range Rings. Soft keys that allow quick access to radar functions and
setting changes appear along the bottom of the page.
Heading line
Using Range Rings
Use the Range Rings to quickly determine the distance to a target.
The lower-right corner of the screen contains two scales. The top
scale value represents the distance from the center of the radar display
to the outermost complete ring. The bottom scale represents the ring
separation or the distance between the Range Rings. Use the RANGE
keys to zoom in or out. The tick marks on the Range Rings are
arranged with major tick marks at 30 degree increments and minor
tick marks every five degrees. The tick marks can help in quickly
determining the azimuth to a target.

MARPA
The Mini Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (MARPA) function helps
with collision avoidance. MARPA can track up to 10 designated
targets. Detailed information including bearing, range, course, speed,
closest point of approach (CPA), and time to closest point of approach
(TCPA) for each target is shown in the MARPA list.
Note: MARPA requires the use of a heading sensor. The
heading sensor must output the NMEA sentence HDM or HDG
at format 0183, v2.30 or higher. The Gamin Marine Network was
tested using the KVH® 1000 heading sensor using six second
dampening.
MARPA relies on a Heading Sensor to provide accurate own vessel
heading information. Accurate heading data enhances MARPA’s
performance. Each target being tracked by MARPA is represented by
a symbol. The symbols indicate the current state of the target.

• Timed Transmit—used to save power, usually while at anchor.
When Timed Transmit is On, the radar uses the settings in
Timed Transmit XMIT Time and Timed Transmit STBY
Time fields. When Timed Transmit is Off, these fields are
unavailable.
• Timed Transmit XMIT Time—sets the amount of time (in
minutes) for which the radar transmits. For example, if set to
01 min, the radar transmits for one minute before switching to
standby for the amount of time entered in the Timed Transmit
STBY Time field.
• Timed Transmit STBY Time—sets the amount of time (in
minutes) that the radar is in standby mode. For example, if set
to 10 min, the radar is in standby mode for 10 minutes before
switching to transmission for the amount of time entered in
the Timed Transmit XMIT Time field. When the radar is in
standby mode, the scanner does not rotate or transmit; however,
power is still applied to the Magnetron, eliminating the need
for a warm-up cycle.
