I doubt the radar you have, RL 70, will work with the c90w. The connections are entirely different ie, multi wires vs. ethernet. On a new boat, I am using a e90w and e120w coupled to a HD 4kw radar. Using a laptop, I can copy routes from the 6.1 software, but not the chart. Windows 7 (64 bit) creates a problem that Raymarine is addressing. It is my understanding that the "c" series will not work with 6.1, or with the new upgrade 6.2. The program and screen on the new c & e series are truly good, hugh progress over the prior hardware.

You can get cheaper dedicated LCD radar with limited (ARPA to 0183) nav integration, ut if you want RADAR&chart overlay and PC Nav integration you have to go up the food chain in the features list and thus the price point.

The price I was looking for the Koden system (actually it was only $7399, I just have a tendency to exaggerate) was a package with software, cables and boxes. I found a price list for the Koden antennas only starting at $4000 and going up.

As soon as I find that winning lottery ticket I am getting a fully integrated system with GPS, chart plotter, radar overlay, AP interface, wind sensors with auto sail trim and reefing and the optional dish washing adapter. Until then I can live with separate systems.

The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.

I got a pretty nice Raymarine radar system for $125 used because the previous owner wanted the latest greatest color screen with built in GPS.....
my GPS plugs into my chartplotter /laptopas (as will my radar, AIS and vhf) and is easily replaceable and in expensive enough to have back-ups. All-together units are by their nature more likely to failure.
