Raymarine eSeries | Lineup

 

Raymarine eSeries - Family

 

The Raymarine eSeries comes in 4 screen sizes, 7″, 9″, 12.1″ 15.4 and have the mostly the same features, options and connections.

The e7D, e97 and e127 models have built-in ClearPulse Sonar/Fishfinder and the e7, e95, e125 and the e165 do not include sonar but they are black box sonar compatible.

The rear connections also differ somewhat as the e7 only has 1 network port and no video-in port. The e95, e125 and the e165 do not have a transducer port.

 


 

Comparisons

 

Raymarine e125 vs eS127

 

Raymarine eSeries vs eS Series

Raymarine | eSeries vs eS Series

 

The eSeries and eS-Series MFDs feature HybridTouch interfaced (touchscreen and keypad). The eS-Series MFDs however feature bonded LCD screens and feature pinch to zoom touch screens which the eSeries does not.

The eS-Series has a  faster processor to make chart redraws and auto-routing functions faster. From the images above you can see that physical design is also different.

The e125 does not have built-in sonar but you can add a blackbox sounder. The eS127 has an  internal 600W ClearPulse Conical 50/200 kHz Fishfinder Sounder.

eS-Series MFDs were designed as the replacement for the e-Series MFDs. The eS-Series MFDs have feature and hardware design improvements like bonded LCD screens, Multi-touch capability (pinch to zoom) and better moisture protection for chart reader slot.

The rear connections are also slightly different as the eS Series has an HDMI Out Port to connect up to a separate display. See Image below.

Sonar Support

 

The e125 does not have built sonar but it is black box sonar ready.

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 e125 - 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 eSeries 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

 

* Requires Black Box Sonar since the e125 does not have built-in sonar.

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 e125 - Radar Options

e125 | Radar Options

 

The eSeries 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.

The e125 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.

e125 » Charts | Mapping

 

The e125 ships standard with either no charts (Worldwide Basemap) 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,  C-MAP by Jeppesen and Raymarine LightHouse chart formats on microSD cards.

 

Raymarine e125 - Navionics Charts

e125 | 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 eSeries 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.
