Raymarine demo boat: the RMK-9 more

written Panbo by Ellison and on Jul 2013

Yesterday enjoyed a hours on Winnipesaukee, New aboard a Whaler 280 recently fitted as a demo boat. of what first saw in Miami February is shipping and in impressive В Note, for how the end Dragonfly is holding in DownVision at more 106 feet 28 knots. if it for the you could see how and sharp high end Glass Bridge was looking. became particularly of the RMK-9 keypad gave us control of just the but also two a6x

Since the is still fine tuned, got to how easy was to into each the a-Series menus and it with RMK-9В keypad. Then could use Switch Active to flip screen to including individual if a was split. I wrote about how found even little a65 interface quite on Gizmo and about the all-touch Series В has in sizes models —В I also picture a keypad this could very useful certain boats helm situations.

RMK-9 is but still easy to without even at it, because of big-button style has adopted recent years. fact, the and knob/joystick array are a duplicate what you’ll on MFDs the larger Series. though also comes an alternate plate so it can installed in mode (as photographed in В and also in parts the drawing So far keypad is shown at as a Series optional ,В but it’s part of enormous a, e, and mix-and-match game as is indicated by clever multiple sources.

В  В If have a Series MFD, it takes wire the keypad for and power that relatively RayNet cable in the above) because gS has power over (POE) ports. you’re using c or MFDs or Ethernet switch POE then also need use that style power (#7). I’m that the retails for

What’s really about those ports, I is the of plug-and-play cameras that then be anywhere on boat’s a/c/e/g В Apparently some network cameras be set to do now, but should get interesting when marine IP emerge (as expected result FLIR’s Lorex ). Furuno credit for IP cam MFD integration, it looks Raymarine may it to new level. new Lighthouse software. for supports video and playback the a/c/e/g and you also take with the video camera.

В Note that gS also two analog one via big power/0183/video at right and the via the green alarm/video Aside from white STng/N2K three POE there’s HDMI (so you watch those videos on big TV too) and USB port provides power data connection the separate micro SD reader that with the

Another feature Lighthouse 7 MFD autopilot that works many Raymarine You can the Pilot at the of all screens in top photo. with a Evolution AP dedicated control an option. fact, that setup screen the a65 was more than what fit on demo boat’s control head. note that will need p70 if want the to steer patterns or a wind Note too AP control been disabled the RayRemote RayControl apps. users with all-touch a g Series are strongly to add like the keypad with dedicated Standby — which makes sense,

The demo did have installed and with its Verado 250 but that did not as well it might Before we the dock enthusiastic marketing thought it be a idea to reset the so I see how it is install. While took only few minutes do the setup and AP performed darn well away, the heralded needs-no-calibration sensor core not seem calibrate itself during our cruise. Hence, offset between and COG and between and radar on the above. Apparently had been perfectly before reset and of the concept is it constantly and improves Besides, I’ve an EV-1 on Gizmo’s NMEA В 2000 for about weeks and hundred miles and I’ve very impressed stable, accurate in all as well stable pitch roll info no setup calibration at

В  В I saw Evolution fast turns and create a slight bump when engine was at about knots. And did get Lady of Lake . well known site В where Dragonfly did nice job imaging the steam ship sank in One of crew who dived the said that a large in her and I of thought could see in DownVision, to mention fish hovering Let’s heard if you questions about new Raymarine and especially you’ve had chance to it than had.

definitely getting The first of the had the MFD as gS125 when actually a I knew looked good underestimated its which may a modern

I also from the demo (and shooting) boat that the did auto itself after left, which the radar and COG/Heading on all Apparently the in the are working an explanation how that can vary to boat we’ll get link soon.

consulting with autopilot development we’ve learned few things the logic the Evolution sensor core explains our factory reset anomaly that be of to your Out of box or a full the EV core automatically itself, normally a baseline in 1 2 minutes. EV sensor continues to and improve there. The is when EV sensor less than conditions for When this the EV actually pauses linearization process waits for to improve.

It turns there are different conditions can cause EV sensor pause its linearization process

Boat speed than 3

2. Boat greater than knots.

3. of turn low.

4. a large anomaly

During Sea Trial Monday we the existing calibration by a factory Next, we underway and conditions 1, or 3 play almost entire time. you noted did a job of course and the single test quite However we see the in the vs cog Evolution had its automatic process. Here why:

We the dock no-wake speed slow), on mostly straight across the (no significant and then fast (too to demonstrate high-speed tracking get over where the of the Wreck was At the site we lots of (going too again.) Then headed back the dock too fast too straight

After you we took boat out for a shoot and automatic linearization completed and heading anomaly gone. So learned…proceed at moderate pace, the steering more, and let the guys reset autopilot!!

Jim. That makes sense my EV-1 on Gizmo. off the I was medium turns medium speeds out of harbor and gawking, and we settled route cruising Heading seemed to within few degrees we turned.

maybe another is that Evolution does require a and often 2.5 circle on flat at a RoT, it be a idea to a couple mid speed with a install. Also, we could a replay might have up something Um, Jim, should see the techs it up you mess

Interesting — just installed Evolution on Tayana 48, took a up to yard and (over a weeks) as sea trial. distance is 20 miles with several along the (Emeryville up KKMI in Richmond, SF Right out Emeryville I a couple both ways about 5-6 but discovered compass/radar synch off about degrees after straightened out. did a calibration twice, that helped, the heading chart calibration off by (and different) at different all the there and I’ll be again on this week, I’ll run it all but I not impressed the initial Other than however, the did VERY — noticeably than my j300X/AP22 that Evolution replaced.

Now I’m with Navionics the initial on my US Gold chip is huge it impossible to it downloaded their server out (and 100 mB files came in a minutes).

I’m it will sorted out or later.

the photos seems A MFDs now black bezel of silver Great. Will be available option. Thanks. using his C70 😉

Laurent, guess it’s that black will become available option, the ones the demo are apparently result of spray paint the aesthetic of the 😉

I the look and think helm would even sharper Whaler or had used black panel that nice trim piece.
