    It is exciting and at the very same time frightening to see how quickly technology has been bettered in just a short period of time. On the one hand, I am still upset at Raymarine for having dropped the RL-series, which “forced” me to upgrade to, in my case, the E-series. All of a sudden, my C-Map charts were worthless and ended-up on, where else, eBay. Now I am being hit over the head with E-wide and the fact, that it uses both, C-Map and Navionics. That is great news! At least, I can hold on to my $400 Navionics chip!

    It seems Raymarine just can’t make some people happy…
    I am truely excited that they have embraced serious technology! NN3D has been problematic to say the least. So for a company, some may feel, that has “one foot in the grave”, I say hats off to Raymarine and good luck!

    The new RM units will display both types of cartography really well. Full colour, hi res and quality marine information on a bright screen with controls that don’t fail when lots of sea water is kicking around or the going gets rough….
    The customer investment and practicalities are always uppermost in their minds. They listen (a lot) and are bringing some cracking new products to market in the next year.

    Now Raymarin is not only platform to support 4D.
    Italian Geonav seems to do that with their new G12 dual chartography MFD’s.
    It works simulateously with Navionics Gold/Platinum on SD-cards and C-MAP 4D on???
    Geonav claims this plotter will support “Easy Routing” from Jeppesen which should be something simular like autorouting we used to see in land GPS navigators. But C-MAP says not a word about this.
