Forward-Looking Sonar compatible with RayMarine MFD's?

I've searched around on this forum and have not been able to find an answer to my exact question, so will start a new thread.


Is anyone aware of a forward-looking Sonar that might be compatible with my RayMarine (e127) MFD? I've been told that Garmin's is not...but I'm not sure if what I've been told is accurate.


Intended use is for approaching unknown inlets and anchorages at slow (2-3kt) speeds.


Thank you in advance for any suggestions!

After meeting with some Garmin Engineers (not sales guys) recently i was advised to choose Panoptix PS 51 or Panoptix Live scope LVS32 to achieve the application you describe. I am finalizing my decision shortly, also it will require the boat to be hauled in order to mount a special transducer as far forward as possible on the hull. that's the latest info i have. best of luck, Delta Couple Bruce

I think all the forward sonar offerings are either proprietary to a single manufacturer’s system (Garmin and Simrad), or are self contained and stand alone (Furuno, Farsounder, EchoScan, wesmar)
