Raymarine A-Series chartplotters and chartplotter fishfinder combos are available in a number of combinations covering two model generations.
The A60 and A65 were the first pair of chartplotter fishfinders introduced in the A-Series lineup. Both were some of the first units packaged to sell with cartography onboard.
These highly regarded units shipped with Navionics Silver chart cards.
The Raymarine A60 uses a 5.7-inch display screen and can be purchased as a standalone plotter or as a chartplotter fishfinder package.
Big brother to the smaller screen A60 is the Raymarine A65 which uses a slightly larger 6.5-inch screen with much higher resolution than its sibling. Again it can be bought standalone or as a chartplotter fishfinder package.
Both the A60 and A65 couple to the Raymarine DSM25 black box sounder to give the unit sounder capability.
A-Series Next Generation
Raymarine is offering large cash rebates. See the individual review pages for details.
The newest Raymarine A-series lineup has three different chartplotter models with various screen sizes that can be ordered as standalone chartplotters or specified as a chartplotter fishfinder by adding an internal sounder.
The Raymarine A50D is the smallest screen version yet still features a 256-color 5-inch LCD display with 640 by 480 pixel resolution. When equipped with an internal 500-watt sounder this unit becomes the Raymarine A50D chartplotter fishfinder.
The mid-level unit in the line is the Raymarine A57 which is equipped with a 5.7-inch display. Again, adding fishfinder capability makes this the Raymarine A57D combo unit.
The biggest screen in the A-Series lineup, at 6.4-inches, is fitted to the top-of-the-line Raymarine A70, when this one is outfitted with fishfinder capabilities it becomes the Raymarine A70D model.
All A-series next generation units feature an internal GPS sensor and the ability to use an external GPS unit if desired. They also have two high-speed data ports and can be ordered with or without onboard cartography.
