New from Raymarine: Axiom+ and New Electronic Chart Catalog

Raymarine Axiom+ offers improved visibility and upgraded performance; Raymarine LightHouse Charts bring heightened levels of clarity and control to marine navigation

Raymarine AXIOM+

FLIR Systems announced today Raymarine Axiom+, the successor to Raymarine’s award-winning Axiom® line of multifunction displays (MFDs). Raymarine is promising improved speed, responsiveness, and screen visibility from Axiom+, which is available in 7-, 9-, and 12-inch display models.

According to Raymarine, Axiom+ comes performance-tuned with a powerful quad-core processor for fast chart redraws, multi-channel sonar views, and augmented reality navigation. Axiom+ models also feature a bright IPS LCD that is 25 percent brighter than previous Axiom models, resulting in improved clarity and wider viewing angles. Touch-screen performance has also been improved thanks to Raymarine’s HydroTough™ ruggedized, nano-coated display, which provides enhanced impact resistance, repels water and oils, and enables accurate touch control in all conditions.
 

Four built-in sonar channels – including RealVision™ 3D – deliver comprehensive views of the underwater world, and a next-generation ultra-sensitive GPS/GNSS receiver offers a 4x improvement in sensitivity for accurate navigation, even in challenging installations.

Along with the upgraded Axiom+ line, Raymarine is unveiling a new electronic catalog of LightHouse Charts. LightHouse Charts are crafted from official hydrographic sources – the same data used by maritime professionals. LightHouse Charts offer Raymarine users a new level of clarity and customization, detail, and the ability to explore on-shore destinations, fishing spots, and points-of-interest (POI) data.

Engineered for both recreational and professional applications, LightHouse Charts allow captains to switch between an official government-style chart presentation or an information-rich leisure chart view. Captains can also choose between four chart color pallets optimized for bright sun, dusk, and nighttime lighting conditions. Raymarine users can also take advantage of a LightHouse Premium subscription and access continuous chart updates, an expanded points-of-interest library, and enhanced satellite imagery from Mapbox.

“Axiom+ takes everything boaters enjoy about Axiom and elevates the user experience with increased performance, simpler navigation, and superior visibility,” says Gregoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of the Raymarine brand. “Combine these benefits with our new LightHouse Chart catalog and boaters have an exciting, powerful, and sophisticated new choice for marine navigation.”

Each model includes a three-year warranty. With models starting at $749, the Axiom+ will be available through Raymarine dealers and retailers immediately. New LightHouse Charts will be released in the third quarter and will be available with the purchase of any new Axiom+ MFD. The entire catalog of charts will also be available for purchase separately at raymarine.com/marine-charts. Chart prices will start at $79.00 USD.
