Will the new a series network with my E80 classic at the helm?  I want the ability to utilize the a65 at my nav station as a master so I can reduce the power consumption of the E80 while underway and not at the helm.  Thanks!

Found the answer to my own question.  No compatibility (graphics) between the E80 classic and the new a65.  So...is there a "smaller" unit that I can use as a data and graphic "master" at the chart table that would be compatible with the old E80 classic?

Welcome to the Raymarine Technical Forum Gordon,

Unfortunately, creation of a second station onboard would require that a second E-Series Classic MFD (E80, E120) be intalled onboard and that the additional MFD be interfaced to the currently installed E80 via SeaTalkhs communications.  As the E-Series Classic MFDs have been retired for some time, the best source of such MFDs would be Internet auction sites (ebay, Craigs List, etc.).  Alternatively, the currently installed E80 would need to be replaced with a new c/e-Series MFD (c95, c97, c125, c127, e7, e7D, e95, e97, e125, e127, e165) and an a-Series MFD (a65, a67).

"Question regarding the RAY49E VHF. I'm rewiring the system. The NMEA output of the VHF, with the NMEA datasets DSC and DSE. How are they processed further in the system? It will be linked with a MFD C127.  Thanks in advance. "
