MFD for Raymarine Analogue Radar

My boat has a Raymarine 2K analogue radome with a C80 MFD. The MFD is on an arm that allows it to be swung out from the cabin to the companionway door. This means it can be seen when down below and from a cockpit seat but it's difficult to read if I'm at the helm. At the helm I have a Standard Horizon 175C - it. works fine but doesn't support AIS, even if sent from VHF.

I'd like to replace both the C80 and the 175C with a binnacle-mounted charplotter that will also display radar and display AIS. Because the radar is Raymarine it seems I'm required to use a Raymarine MFD. The new generation of Raymarine MFDs don't support the old analog radar systems.

I do not want to replace the radar. so my question is: Does it make sense to upgrade to a more recent, but not quite current, Raymarine C-series? Or, for less money, should I just buy a new Chartplotter and live with or move the C80?

Re: MFD for Raymarine Analogue Radar

You could buy a used MFD... maybe an E120?
