Identifying whether a display has hsb or hsb2 communications circuitry
Identifying whether a display has hsb or hsb2 communications circuitry

The following Pathfinder Series Radar, Chatplotter, and Fishfinder Displays feature neither hsb nor hsb2 communications circuitry and have accordingly been designed for single station/single display applications:
- SL72
- SL72R
- SL70
- SL70RC
- SL520
- SL530
- SL631
- SL755RC
- SL760RC
- SL1250
- SL1250RC

The following Pathfinder Series Radar, Chatplotter, and Fishfinder Displays may have produced with or upgraded with hsb2 communications circuitry:
- R70
- R70RC
- R80
- R80RC
- RL70
- RL70RC
- RL70CRC
- RL80C
- RL80CRC
- RC520
- RC530
- RC631
- L755RC
- L760
- L760RC
- L1250
- L1250RC
- L1260D
- L1260DRC

Raymarine used to be a division of Raytheon and while owned by Raytheon, its recreational marine electronics bore the Raytheon brand name. After the recreational marine electronics division was sold, its products now bare Raymarine the name. The Pathfinder Series Displays were produced under the brand name Raytheon as well as Raymarine.

When manufactured under the Raytheon brand name, the Pathfinder Series displays were manufactured with hsb (also referred to as hsb1) communications circuitry. When manufactured under the Raymarine brand name, the Pathfinder Series displays were manufactured with hsb2 communications circuitry. Products manufactured with hsb communications circuitry are not compatible with those manufactured with hsb2 communications circuitry. As many Pathfinder Series displays with hsb communications circuitry were upgraded by their owners with hsb2 communication circuitry via Raymarine's Product Repair Centers, the only way to be certain whether a second hand Pathfinder Series display features hsb or hsb2 communications circuitry is by examining the splash screen image that is displayed while the Pathfinder Series Display display is booting.

Should the splash screen image reference Raytheon, then the display feature hsb communications circuitry and would be capable of being interfaced with one other display featuring hsb communications circuitry to share radar/chartplotting/fishfinding features. The currently installed software version will be specified within the Navigational Warning message that must be acknowledged each time that the display is powered on.

Should the splash screen image reference Raymarine, then the display features hsb2 communications circuitry and would be capable of being interfaced with up to 7 displays featuring hsb2 communications circuitry to share radar/chartplotting/fishfinding features. Pathfinder Series Displays featuring hsb2 circuitry may also be interfaced to a DSM250, DSM30, or DSM300 which in turn may be interfaced to a compatible fishfinder transducer to add digital fishfinding capability to Pathfinder Series Radar, Chartplotter, and Fishfinder Displays. Pathfinder Series Displays featuring hsb2 communications circuitry also feature the ability to transfer waypoint/route data between displays via hsb2. This feature is not supported by hsb Pathfinder Series Displays. Hsb Pathfinder Series Displays may not be interfaced with hsb2 Pathfinder Series Displays for the purpose of sharing graphical radar, cartographic, or fishfinder high speed data.

Raymarine's Factory Repair Center can no longer upgrade hsb Pathfinder Series Displays with hsb2 communications circuitry to make them compatible with other hsb2 Pathfinder Series Displays and C-Map NT+ cartography. Similarly, Raymarine's Product Repair Center can not longer update the software of these displays.
