Upgrading from Raytheon to Raymaire Radar and Chartplotter

I am upgrading my radar and charplotter, presently I have a Raytheon HSB Series Pathfinder radar/chartplotter screen with Raytheon radar dome that was installed in the boat in 2001.

I would like to upgrade to a Raymarine C90 Widescreen plotter with a RD418digital dome.

I have a Raytheon tridata repeater down at the nav station, Raytheon wind speed and depth in the cockpit.

My auto pilot is Raymarine is is ST70.

I am hoping that I will just have to replace the dome, radar cable and chartplotter.

If anyone has does this same change over are there any problems I should be aware of and is this a complicated installation?

Thanks

SeaDancer

Yes you are correct. Its not a complex system you have. Fairly standard Ray setup.

I bought the C80 radar chartplotter package. If an E 80 is compatable how much are you asking for the screen

Re: Upgrading from Raytheon to Raymaire Radar and Chartplotter

As far as I know one is completely compatible withe the other but you should check with RM to be sure. I've had it for sale for $1250 with a GPS antenna. If you take it without the antenna I will sell it for $1100.
