Raymarine c127 | Review

 

 

The Raymarine c127 – Can be used a single all-in-one chart, radar and sonar navigation display or expand into a navigation network with multiple displays, CHIRP DownVision sonar, radar, thermal night vision and a bunch more.

With a Bright 12.1″ display and Rotary button control  it allows for simple control with the rotary unicontroller with integrated joystick and the built-in keypad. The screen is sunlight viewable and optically bonded for sharp color and nice contrast.

Built on the LightHouse II – operating system, this simple to use interface unlocks the features of the cSeries. LightHouse II makes customizing the display pretty easy with full or split screen windows for charting, radar, sonar and any other items you connect to the system.

Quite Fast – Designed with dual core processing and a dedicated graphics processor it delivers quick chart redraws and a pretty snappy response.

LightHouse II Chart Engine – Navigate with premium Navionics vector charts including Navionic’s community sourced Sonar charts or alternatively choose Raymarine LightHouse freely available vector and raster charts of US waters.

Expanable – Network with any Lighthouse II powered Raymarine MFD including the eSeries. Create a multi-station network with up 8 displays.

Built-In Sonar – The dual-frequency 600w Clearpulse fishfinder seems pretty smart with adaptive adjustments for  very clear target separation.

1. RayRemote –  Gives you remote control of your MFD from your mobile device.
2. RayView – Stream or mirrow your MFD screen directly to your tablet or smartphone.
3. RayControl – Good for tablets: 2 way control between your MFD and tablet.

These apps are available through the Google Play Store and Apple Itunes. The viewer app for screen mirroring is good but I found the remote App for the I found a little clunky.

Raymarine c127 - With Clearpulse Sonar

Raymarine c127 | With Clearpulse Sonar

 

The c127 comes with built-in dual frequency ClearPulse Digital Sonar putting about 600 watts of power. ClearPulse sonar targets fish and shows structure with excellent clarity.

The Intelligent ClearPulse automatically adapts and adjusts for a clear image of fish and bottom contours in depths up to 3000’ according to Raymarine. It will read depth to 3000′ but for fish, 600-900 is more realistic.

ClearPulse eliminates surface clutter, water column noise, revealing more fish and easily separates bottom fish hanging close to the bottom.

Dual frequency operation (200/50 kHz) uses auto adaptive gain control which eliminates constant adjustments. Additional features include Real-time A-Scope display, Zoom and Bottom Lock magnification modes.

Need More Power…

Its also blackbox sonar ready if you need something more powerful. Add a CP450 with ClearPulse CHIRP technology and it will go beyond conventional sonar with excellent resolution and depth performance up to 10,000’ with an Airmar CHIRP compatible transducer.

CP450 | ClearPulse Overview – ClearPulse CHIRP technology takes advantage of a wide spectrum of sonar signals for a precise view of fish, structure and the entire water column.

 

Raymarine cSeries c97 - Clearpulse CHIRP Sonar

Conventional vs ClearPulse CHIRP Sonar

 

Conventional sonars transmit and listen at a single frequency with each pulse and the CP450C CHIRPS across a wide spectrum of sonar frequencies simultaneously

Two Independent Sonars for Shallow water or offshore the CP450C “CHIRPS” in a broad range of sonar frequencies with two independent CHIRP sonar transceivers built in Low, Mid and High Frequency Bands.

The CP450C detects fish and other underwater targets using any discreet frequency from 25 to 250 kHz. CP450C also offers mid-band frequency support in the 75 to 130 kHz range. This means no matter what you fish for, no matter where they hide, CP450C intelligently detects and targets the fish you want to catch!

The Ultra-fast  80 ping-per-second update rate delivers up to twice the refresh speed of conventional sonars, providing near real time view of water depth and bottom conditions when you need it most.

 

Additional Blackbox Sonar Options – The cSeries is also compatible with these black box sonar units.

 

  • CP100 — DownVision
  • CP200 — SideVision
  • CP300 / CP370 — Traditional sonar
  • CP450C / CP470 — CHIRP sonar
  • CP570  — CHIRP professional sonar

Custom Sonar Mapping

 

SonarChart Live – Create personal contour charts using sonar and the SonarChart Live feature, which is part of the Navionics. This is a very cool feature when your in an area that lacks chart detail.

When using SonarChart Live, new 1′ contour lines are drawn in real time on your screen based on your transducer depth readings.

Color shading is used to reflect depth, with dark red signifying the shallowest area. The sonar data is recorded to your cartography card and is shared with Navionics when you update your chart card online.

Raymarine c127 - Radar Options

Raymarine c127 | Radar Options

 

The cSeries can display radar data with all Raymarine Non-HD Digital Radomes,  HD or SuperHD, Digital, HD Color or Super HD Color and Quantum radar scanners.

Which Radar is Compatible with the cSeries? Radomes and Open Array Radar for retired MFD’s w/Ethernet interface(s)

The c127 display includes Wi-Fi which makes the Raymarine Quantum radar a nice choice. Quantum Radar is one of the first compact marine radar to use CHIRP pulse compression technology. It delivers excellent radar imaging on both long and extremely short ranges.

Integrated Wi-Fi makes installation easy and Quantum’s lightweight design provides safe radiated emissions and reduced power consumption.

Raymarine Quantum Radar Review – Here is a pretty in-depth review done by Practical Boat a few years ago of the Quantum radar up against the RD418D traditional radar and some additional images next to an open-array.

c127 » Charts | Mapping

 

The c127 ships with either no charts, (Worldwide Basemap) CMAP or Navionics charts with options for US Coastal, US Inland, Canada, Europe and Rest Of the World.

It does have additional charting support for a pretty wide range of charts like Navionics+ Navionics Platinum,  and Raymarine LightHouse chart formats on microSD cards.

 

Raymarine c127 - Navionics Charts

c127 | Navionics Charts with Routing

 

Here is a list of of the cartography available thru Raymarine Chart Store.

  • LNC (Lighthouse US Coastal Vector Charts)  – charts are very basic and more like a basemap.
  • NAG – Navionics+ and Navionics Platinum+ Chart Cards
  • C-Map Essentials and 4D MAX+

 

Waypoints, routes, and tracks  – may be transferred to the cSeries display via microSD card using a GPX file produced by a navigational planning application supporting the GPX waypoint/route/track file format.

The unit will store 3000 waypoints in a 100 waypoint groups, 15 Track Logs, and 150 Routes.

Pro Tip: While only 15 tracks may be stored within the MFD’s internal memory, waypoints, routes, and track data may be exported to a microSD card for a bunch more storage capacity.

This means you can move stored tracks back and forth as needed. Not ideal but possible.
