Expanded Multifunction Displays


Raymarine a9 and a12 aSeries multifunction displays offer the same wireless and swipe-and-touch technology as the company’s earlier 5.7in and 7in models, but in a 9in or 12in format. Both devices feature Raymarine’s Lighthouse II user interface, which intuitively places frequently used navigation functions where you’ll easily find them. They also boast a daylight-viewable display and a 10hz 50-channel internal GPS receiver. Powerful dual processors enable fast panning and zooming, while built-in Wi-Fi makes it possible to view and control the systems remotely via a tablet and smartphone. The systems can also be easily integrated with AIS, sonar, radar and a Raymarine T-Series thermal camera. A dual-slot microSD card allows users to download chart data and/or LightHouse software updates.

From $1,899. Raymarine, raymarine.com
