Raymarine E-80 chartplotter professionally installed by marine electrician in San Diego

High Performance Navigation

Packed with power and performance features, the 8.4” E80 display can be used as a stand-alone E-Series navigation display, or integrated with other E-Series displays as part of a SeaTalkhsnetwork

E80 utilizes Raymarine's exclusive Ultra-Bright Sunlight Viewable display technology, ensuring you a crystal-clear display with excellent contrast and a wide viewing angle.   The bright 8.4" TFT LCD produces stunning chart, radar and fishfinder detail and superior video quality.

The E80 features a highly customizable navigation interface.  3D Navionics Platinum Plus* chartplotting, radar, HD Digital fishfinder, SIRIUS marine weather, instrumentation and video applications are viewed in user-defined “Pages”.  Each page can be completely customized with multiple window combinations or full screen applications for every navigation scenario. 

The E80 supports Raymarine's exclusive SeaTalkhs network protocol, which enables plug and play sharing of radar, chartplotting, fishfinder, weather and navigation functions between E-Series displays.  The E80 also supports SeaTalk and SeaTalk2/SeaTalkNG protocols for seamless integration with Raymarine instruments and autopilots.  NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 support rounds out the E80’s robust capabilities for integration with 3rd party electronics and electronic engine monitoring.

The E80 is equipped with 4 video input ports for integration with Raymarine marine cameras, CCTV cameras, satellite television receivers, infrared cameras and more.  Each video input can be viewed either full-screen or within a window alongside other navigation displays.  The E80 also features a VGA video output port for connection to remote monitors or entertainment systems.  Access the E80’s navigation functions from the salon or stateroom.  An optional remote control keyboard is available for full function control of the E80 display from a remote monitor location.

Built on a rugged aluminum chassis and waterproof to CFR46 standards, the E80 includes both a convenient trunion mounting bracket as well as a low-profile flush mounting kit for a clean, unobtrusive helm.

The Raymarine E80 kit comes with an owners manual, quick reference guide, full-face suncover, trunion mounting kit, flush mounting kit, NMEA input/output cable, power cable, SeaTalk/auxiliary alarm cable, SeaTalkhs network cable, and 4-channel composite video input cable.
