Raymarine i70s is the updated version of the popular, color multi-purpose device from Raymarine. Needless to say, it replaces the i70.
The new Raymarine i70s features a large and bright 4.1” LCD screen with enhanced retro-lighting for an improved view in day and night conditions. The screen is sealed for higher contrast and wider view angle, and – despite the several functions – the device is still very friendly to use. Raymarine i70s is compatible with SeaTalkng and NMEA2000 network protocols, while the chance to choose the data source allows the best integration in multi-sensor networks.
Raymarine i70s: watch out for the design
Raymarine i70s sports and elegant and low profile design, perfectly matching the latest screens from the company. Every device comes with two changeable frames, with a square look like the eS Series. One is black, matching the MFD eS/gS Series display, and the other one is gray like the aSeries/eSeries screens. To complete the package, every Raymarine i70s has a protective cover.
As for connectivity, the new Raymarine i70s features a single SeaTalkng port, as it’s NMES2000 certified: so when you replace the previous i70 you need to use a 5-way SeaTalkng connector and/or a T-shaped SeaTalkng one, in order to link the i70s screen to the SeaTalkng/NMEA2000 network dorsal. Last but not least, the software of both i70 and i70s has been updated to grant compatibility with the new p79s (v3.06) interior transducers.
