Following the launch of the a-Series multifunction displays (MFDs), Raymarine has expanded the a-Series line with the addition of two versions of the a65 and a67 complete with built-in Wi-Fi. The compact a‐Series multifunction displays offer access via Raymarine’s LightHouse user interface to navigation applications like GPS, sonar, radar and data. The expansion into Wi-Fi means that, as with Raymarine’s e‐Series and c-Series MFDs, new a-Series Wi-Fi owners will be able to use RayRemote and RayControl apps to control their a-Series Wi-Fi MFD directly from their smartphone or tablet.
 
RayControl transforms tablets into both a viewer and a full-function 2 way MFD control. The tablet syncs with the MFD and users touch the tablet screen to control the MFD; pulling up charts, operating radar and sonar, selecting menus, setting waypoints, and more.  RayRemote is designed for use on smartphones, switching their smaller screens between a full screen MFD repeater display and a full screen virtual keypad. Raymarine apps are available for Apple iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, and can be purchased via the Apple iTunes App store, Google Play Store for Android, and through the Amazon Android Marketplace.

Engineered to perform on boats below 30’ the new a‐Series are multifunction displays designed for tight spaces. Both models include a 50 channel internal GPS and options for Navionics Silver or Gold charts on microSD.  The a‐Series displays also connect with NMEA2000 networks using Raymarine’s SeaTalkng network, giving boaters the ability to integrate AIS, autopilots and engine instruments.

New a-Series a65 with Wi-Fi and a67 with Wi-Fi will be available from mid-March onwards. Prices start from €795/£645 ex tax.
