Raymarine Es98 Review

I was thinking of adding this option on a new Zodiac Pro Open 650. Does anyone have any thoughts on this instrument?

I put one on my Sundancer 280 along with Quantum radar last year and am pleased with both. Raymarine had never really done the user interface well until FLIR purchased them. It is done "right" now. If you can use an iPhone, you can navigate the menus well.

Personally I like the hybrid controls (touch and button/wheel). There are times with one or the other is best. The display is very bright and easily adjustable for night cruises. If you use Navionics charts, using their app on the iPhone/iPad and then syncing with the chart plotter is great.

I've been a Garmin bigot in the past. This is much better IMHO. There are rumors that Raymarine will be coming out with a Lighthouse III upgrade to the software soon as well (currently on Lighthouse II). Bottom line, I am pleased with it.
