Raymarine’s a98 is a full-featured GPS/chartplotter and fishfinder with amazing CHIRP DownVision™ Sonar technology. CHIRP DownVision lets you see fish and bottom structure like never before by delivering stunning images of underwater structure, fish, wrecks and more with photo-like clarity. The a98 also features a CHIRP fish targeting channel which makes it easy to identify both baitfish and predators.
Navigate with Freely Available NOAA Raster and Vector Charts: a-Series owners can now experience greater charting flexibility with the introduction of LightHouse Charts. These free charts are derived from NOAA charts and offer a simple solution for navigating U.S. coastal waters. LightHouse Charts are available in Raster or Vector formats. If desired, you can upgrade to 3D charting and satellite photos with Navionics Platinum Plus charts. The a98 can be expanded to include radar, satellite weather, AIS, thermal imaging and much, much more.
