5.52 features


E-Series Classic version 5.52 software provides a number of new features and improvements for MFD/Autopilot integration, Automatic Identification Systems (AIS), chartplotter functionality and general performance.

E-Series Classic Version 5.52 offers the following new expanded capabilities:

  • Digital Radome support - Raymarine has made provisions to insure all E-Series Classic Multifunction Displays possess full compatibility with the Digital Radome product line.
  • AIS Class B support - Further expanding on Raymarine's AIS capabilities, software v5.52 now provides E-Series Classic with AIS Class B support, including silent mode and buddy tracking.
  • Foreign language support for chart labels - E-Series Classic software v5.52 brings with it the addition of Unicode support, providing users the ability to display actual chart labels in a number of foreign languages (foreign language availability dependent upon purchased Navionics cartography).
  • SeaTalkng Support - With 5.52 software, the E-Series Classic MFDs can now be connected to a full SeaTalkng based installation (Support for AIS500 in SeaTalkng still pending).
  • Datum Selection - GPS Datum selection error previously reported earlier in the summer has now been corrected in this software release.
