Raytheon Radar SL70 with older Radome

Can I upgrade just the display unit? I have an RL9 radar with the older style radome, and wanted to get a newer display, the SL70. I know the SL70 uses the pathfinder radome. Are the two compatible?

Ben, both units are obsolete.
The company changed to Raymarine years ago and just got bought by FLIR in the last week or so.
I had a RL70 and upgraded to a MFD with digital radome. High contrast color is much better than the old dark grey/light grey LCD.

You might get lucky but every time a new generation comes out they change everything.
