Raymarine C80 RL70C RC530 Confusion

Hello,
I recently purchased a sailboat equipt with RL70C rev 4.11 at the nav station (radar is presently not in the equation) and a RC530 at the helm. I recently came into a C80, and I am wondering if it is worth, or possible to incorporate the C80 into the mix.
Advice appreciated.

Re: Raymarine C80 RL70C RC530 Confusion

Given the right cabling, the C80 can act as a repeater for NMEA data (wind, position, etc)...however it cannot overlay the radar from the RL70c. Incompatible types of radar.

Still, decent kit...but very limited since all of what you have is now 3-4 generations (5-10+ years) old.
