Default Raymarine E80 repair

I have an E-80 that needs repaired. Took it to local repair shop. The main board is out. Raymarine told them that he would have to send it in to get them to repair it. Raymarine would not give a price for repair until they received the unit. Looked at buying new unit, but it is not compatible with the radar. I bought this unit in 08 and now everything is obsolete. Does anyone have any recommendations on either a repair or what new system is the best?

What sort of peripherals are you running? For instance, if you've got an analog radar (not digital), you'll need to switch that out too if upgrading to something else. If you're looking to do things on the cheap, then either send the unit in for repair or if you don't need any of the added features of the E80, buy a used C80 to pop in there while you think about your next move. I can tell you that main boards are not cheap, you'll be looking at the upper end of the flat rate repair to get it back to operational status

I would expect there will be quite some used E Classics's for sale when the 9 & 14" versions of the new e series becomes available.

I plan to keep my E80 for several years if it don't fails. It works very well as a radar display together with my HD Digital dome.
