Replacing A70 Classic with ???
I am looking to get a little bigger presence at the helm by replacing my Classic A70 with another Raymarine MDF. Can I do this just by swapping out the A70 for an A95? Would this be as simple as plug and play? Would other models be more appropriate for the swap....if I am trying to avoid a lot of rewiring or transducer replacement?

Thanks for the suggestions.

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Mike,

Replacement of the A70 MFD with an a95 MFD would require replacement of the a70 MFD's Power/NMEA 0183 Cable with the Power/NMEA 0183 Cable supplied with the a95 MFD. Should a cable presently be interfaced to the A70 MFD's SeaTalkng communications port, then it would need to be disconnected from the A70 and then connected to the a95 MFD's SeaTalkng communications port. With regard to the transducer you have referred to, please note that unlike the A70D, the A70 did not feature a transducer socket to accommodate a fishfinder transducer.
