Default Raymarine E120

I just bought an E120 used (display only). I need the DSM module and transom mount ducer, and a gps antenna. I have a friend converting from Ray to Lowrance and gave me a dome.

I am assuming that an older garmin antenna won't work??

Let me know if anyone has anything.

Make sure you check out the Trading Dock ...I saw a used DSM not long ago.

Are you looking for 600 or 1 kw capability?

I have a Ray 120 Seatalk and a Ray 120 NMEA GPS reciever. $100, shipped for either one.

Ryder, do you know what the difference is between the 125 and the 120? Also what is the 120 sea talk?

I'm new to ray... sorry for the questions.

The 120 is the precurssor to the 125. It has a slightly smaller appearance and does not have an LED. The 120 comes in two flavors. Seatalk, Raymarine's proprietary network protocol and NMEA, which is the industry standard for raw data transfer. The Ray 120 is more easily mounted like a puck without the need for a base. The Ray 125, not so easily. This is handy if you want to keep the GPS receiver down and out of the way of the radar beam.

The Ray 125 is switchable from Seatalk to NMEA and back. That's an advantage if you change your mind on how you want to configure your network. I had two receivers on my boat for redundancy. Raymarine suggested one of each at the time. When you congfigure your primary network as Seatalk and the secondary one as NMEA you have automatic redundancy. If the Seatalk fails, the Raymarine equipment starts reading the NMEA sentences right away. It ignores NMEA if Seatalk is available.

Some of the Seatalk Ray 120's had a buffer overflow problem. I had one of those and Raymarine exchanged it for a new model that didn't. That's the one I'm offering here. Let me know if you're interested.
