The new plotter from Raymarine is available with 7, 9 and 12 inch screen sizes. The display is weatherproof and should ensure good readability thanks to its high contrast and brightness. The models 7S and 9S have a resolution of 800 by 480 and the model 12S of 1280 by 800 pixels. It is controlled using the buttons on the right edge of the housing; there is no touch function. AIS and radar data can be displayed via overlay, and motor data can also be called up on the display via NMEA2000. According to the manufacturer, echo sounders or fish finders can also be connected, but the Element S series does not support high-resolution sonar technology. This is also less important for sailors and is due to the concept of the plotter series of delivering simple functionality at a fair price.
So it seems only logical that the navigation systems of the series are operated with a reduced version of the LightHouse operating system. Instead of LightHouse 3.9, the Element-S series plotters are delivered with LightHouse Sport. The version dispenses with the display of thermal images, installation of apps, augmented reality, connection of SmartDevices via WiFi and touch functions. LightHouse NC-2, Navionics, and C-Map charts are supported. The plotter can be mounted on the bulkhead or on a bracket. Price from 450 euros.
