The big new feature on the Furuno and Garmin radars is the use of doppler to ID moving targets automatically. That's a big deal at any range especially in close. I am not sure what I need to track at 48 miles unless I am trying to triangulate my position by radar bearings off of distant points of land. The radar horizon on most trawler installations for surface targets is far short of 48 miles.
