Wireless Radar???

has anyone have or tried the new Furuno 1st Watch Wireless Radar? would like some feedback as it looks like a pretty good idea without all the wire except for the power wire,,, and I wonder if there would be any interference from others using the same radar..

I had seen this offering from Furuno and I have to admit I am intrigued by where all this technology is heading, but at the same time I'm not a fan of using something like an iPad as my ONLY navigation interface.

I'm doing a complete electronics update on my boat this spring. I'm not going with Furuno but I WILL be able to use an iPad to remotely (via WIFI) control and mirror my new chart plotters with radar overlay.
