Raymarine Upgrade Compatibility?

I am considering making an offer on a 2004 vintage boat that has a full Raymarine suite as follows - RL70C plotter (lower helm), 770D fishfinder (upper helm), T6001 Smartpilot w/ remote, Pathfinder 2D 18" radar with 7" display unit, and ST60 Windspeed at lower helm. Everything appears to be NMEA 0183 networked.

My question is - can I replace the lower and upper MFDs with modern Raymarine units (such as the A series, and still connect to the existing Autopilot and radar?

The SmartPilot and windspeed gear can be interfaced, but the radar is not compatible, as the current generation MFDs are digital.
