Chartplotter, Fishfinder and Much More.
The Raymarine c97 is built with a bright 9" sunlight viewable display and offers a plethora of options that make this plotter a navigation powerhouse. The perfect option for sailboats and power boats of all types, the c97 has high end features, including a built-in sonar, at an affordable price.
Built in to every Raymarine c-97 is a high-sensitivity GPS antenna providing you with the quickest and most up to date information on your location no matter where you are. If you are mounting the c 97 in a location on the boat where it will not be able to get a GPS signal, like in an aluminum radio box, you can add the Raymarine RS130 external antenna. And since this version of the Raymarine c-series chartplotter is preloaded with Lighthouse Navigation Charting, you will see your location on a detailed chart. Raymarine built all of the current e-series and c-series units with a dual-core main processor along with a third graphics processor to provide instantaneous chart redraw and stunning 3D graphics. Raymarine also made these units easier to thanks to their “LightHouse User Interface”. Lighthouse uses intuitive menus and places frequently used navigation functions right at your fingertips.
Raymarine will also accept C-Map 4D charts for exceptional detail. C-Map 4D includes Raster Charts, 3D View, Satellite Overlay, Route Checking, Anti-Grounding Alarm, Official Up to Date Chart Sources, Tidal Heights, Animated Currents/Tidal Flows, Detailed Marina Charts, C-Marina Ports Database, California MPAs, Aerial Photos, Multi-Language Charts, Perspective (Birds Eye) View, High Resolution Bathymetric (HRB) Data /Fishing Charts, & Sport Fishing Data.
The c97 has a built-in Digital Sounder that uses Raymarine’s ClearPulse Digital sonar technology. With ClearPulse technology you can view fish and structure with amazing clarity at depths up to 3000’(depending on transducer). The built-in 600w, 50/200khz ClearPulse digital sonar automatically adapts and adjusts its settings for a clearer image of fish and bottom contours.
The c97 is networkable as well as NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 compatible to give you the ability to add any number of peripherals. Would you like to see and navigate at night or in the fog? No problem, simply add a Raymarine Digital Radar and/or Thermal Night Vision Camera. Each technology has a specific advantage. With the addition of a Raymarine digital radar you have options like radar overlay, Marpa, AIS tracking, high speed scanning and dual range modes which will help you see things like buoys, boats, land or other objects above the water. With Thermal night vision cameras you will be able to see in the dark like never before. By using FLIR’s thermal imaging technology to detect heat and display it as a video image you will have enhanced situational awareness and overall safer navigation. Another add-on to help situational awareness and boating safety is Raymarine SR150 SIRIUS Marine Weather receiver. View up-to-the-minute animated weather radar, forecasts, storm warnings and much more right on your e or c series display. Whether you have a single station center console or a 70’ sailboat, Raymarine’s c-series can be adapted to your requirements. c-Series and e-Series MFD’s can be networked together with up to 6 displays throughout your vessel allowing full control at every station.
If this is not enough for you, don’t worry there is more. Raymarine Viewer gives your c or e-series the ability to stream the same data that is on the display right to you iPhone, iPad or Android device. You can also interface the c97 via Bluetooth to your MP3 or Smartphone for control of your favorite music and to the Raymarine RCU-3 for wireless control of your c-Series. Other possible interfacing includes AIS, NMEA 2000 components, instruments and autopilots. The c97 is a top choice chartplotter and can handle almost any job you throw at it.
