Call it a “Rayvolution”? Raymarine is shaking up its product lines big time, including replacing its SL stand-alone electronics with the radically redesigned C Series. The most obvious change is the landscape screen configuration, which makes ergonomic sense especially when considering the whomping 12.1-inch, 600x800-pixel, top-of-the-line unit (shown). Then you’ll realize that even the 6.5-inch and 8.4-inch sizes can be plotter, radar, or digital fishfinder—or all of the above—depending simply on which sensors you hook up. In fact the redesign runs deep; during a recent prototype test off Florida, I witnessed significant interface and performance improvements, plus welcome new features like the “Twist N’ Click” knob, multiple waypoints overlaid on a radar window, and unlimited route and track storage to a CF chart card. The big C120 shown starts at $3,185 with a GPS sensor.

Raymarine is also introducing new small-boat electronics organized as the A Series and is all grins about the eventual makeover of its networked multistation displays.
