Raymarine Rant

I have a Raymarine C80 chartplotter on a powerboat..... I like it; So much so, that I want one for my sailboat, but the sailboat has limited space for a bulkhead mounted chartplotter and wind and depth instruments. I would love it if Raymarine would add functionality to the chartplotter that allowed it to graphically display the wind indicator in a window on the chartplotter. They already do a terrific job of letting you segment the screen to perform a variety of functions, why can't wind speed and direction be one of those windows?!? Seems like it would be an easy feature to enable, but my enquiries to them get a response of "not on our product roadmap".

Has anyone seen a chartplotter that has this capability?

You can get a RayMarine single remote display that actually repeats all of the depth, speed, temp, etc that are available as standalone units (St-60 tri-data / st-60 plus is the name I believe). Its used exclusively for that purpose - consolidating the three into one cockpit mounted display....but still doesn't cover wind...

I have one that I use in the nav station (as I didn't want to add in a new set of separate instruments (I have all three of the ST-60 for depth speed wind mounted on the cockpit) I think it runs 350-450 can't remember). That would allow you to have the wind one and a consildated into one for the other two / three...Other than a graphical like look of the remote disply for wind - most of the C-80 display info can be overlaid to include most data (it will not be graphical its a text based info)...

Their new line (ST70-series) - does allow the same visual graphical display of the wind indicators on the charter display as the remote displays have...I do believe (Panbo's site has that info and think that is where I am recall it from)....

check out Raymarine's site for the ST-70

It can be used with the C series and with the ST60...

Is this what you're after?


Garmin GMI™ 10 Marine Instrument Display

Simplify Marine Instrumentation

The GMI 10 improves upon the traditional method of marine instrumentation, in which standard marine instruments have their own dedicated display. By displaying data from multiple remote sensors on one screen, the GMI 10 offers a streamlined approach to marine instrumentation.

Mariners can use the GMI 10 to display instrument data such as depth, speed through the water, water temperature, fuel flow rate, engine data, fuel level, wind direction and more, depending upon what sensors are connected. In fact, the GMI 10 supports more than two dozen standard NMEA 2000 and more than 20 NMEA 0183 data sentences.
