I have a c80 chartplotter with dome radar. Unit works fine

Customer Question

I have a c80 chartplotter with dome radar. Unit works fine but I want to upgrade head unit as it is scratched and I would like touchscreen capability. Can I replace head without updating dome?

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I think the brief answer to your question is, 'yes'... you should be able (to replace a unit as classic and standard as the Raymarine c80) to replace the c80 with another screen unit, a modern one with touchscreen capability.

But: before considering the above a certainty, you should tell me what

1. what radar dome you currently have, hooked up to the c80


2. what other devices, cables, etc, you have hooked up to the c80.

Let me know, and I will advise you as to your specific choices. Thanks.

Russell. Do you need a model number for dome? It is a Raymarine that was installed new with C80. I can get off of unit if you need. Only radar and plotter cabled.

Good. Please get me the model # ***** the Ray-Dome or radar transponder. I need that data, in order to give you a thoroughly good answer to your question.

OK. I think that one last datum is what I need to know in order to give you a complete and accurate answer. Let me know at your convenience. Thanks.
