NEW PRODUCT LINE!  Raymarine Element GPS Chartplotters and Fishfinders


Raymarine has introduced their new line of GPS chartplotters and fishfinders called the Raymarine Element Series.  The Raymarine Element delivers a high quality CHIRP sonar and GPS for a stand alone unit.  By using their HyperVision 1.2 megahertz super high resolution sonar, you see the clearest view of the underwater from any Raymarine stand alone unit ever.  Raymarine's Hypervision is like Downvision, Sidevision, and Realivsion 3D on steroids.  Hypervision will allow you the clarity to identify fish from the vegetation with pho-like clarity.  

To power their units, Raymarine employs a quad-core processor to deliver instant chart redraws, smooth RealVision 3D imaging, and fast response time.  The keypad is intuitive and built for the angler in mind.  Raymarine has included an oversized waypoint button for you to  easily mark those hot fishing spots.

The Raymarine Element is due some time in Q1 of this year.
