Raymarine is already expanding on its e7 chartplotter, which has won various awards, including a 2012 SAIL magazine Pittman Innovation Award. The company’s “e” series now includes two largers versions equipped with a 9- or 12.1-inch screen. Like the e7, they offer a wealth of features, including the intuitive LightHouse user interface, integral GPS, “HybridTouch” touch-screen control, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, which allows users to view or input data wirelessly via an iPad, iPod or a wireless remote. The “c” series provides a lower-priced alternative by forgoing the HybridTouch capability for keypad control alone.
