What Devices Are Compatible with Raymarine A Series MFDs? – Tony, on Apr 22, 2015 asked:

Is the Raymarine RD218 Radome Scanner compatible with the Raymarine a65 MFD or a78 MFD? If so, what cables, connectors or other equipment do I need?

The good news is that the new Raymarine A series MFDs can handle both radar and transducers.

When purchasing a Raymarine radar make sure you indicate that it is connecting to an A series MFD because you will need a radar cable with a special connector at the end.
