We have a catamaran
with an integrated nav system on a Seatalk
network. Our Raymarine
C90W at the nav station has gone dark, and instead of repairing, we want to replace it with a display that has bluetooth and wi-fi enabled display so that we can connect to a portable display at the helm
. We are mostly sailing in the bay with hopes of coastal navigation
. No need for fishfinder
or open ocean gear
for the foreseeable future. We are thinking of one of the Raymarine
"a" series and have some questions:
1. Any opinions on 9" or 12"? We are thinking 9" would be fine and 12" costs twice as much.
2. Can it plug
in easily to replace the C90W or with an adapter? Or do we need to get an electronics
3. Any complaints or enthusiasm about the a series or another display that would easily integrate into a Seatalk
network? We are still both working full-time, so looking for the easier options, rather than spending a lot of time researching or figuring out the ultimate best option.
Thanks for any input!
