At sea, speed matters…

Now you can see more clearly while navigating at sea. In June, FLIR Systems announced that Raymarine Axiom+, a powerful new series of multifunction displays (MFDs) for anglers, cruisers and sailors, plus updated Raymarine LightHouse Charts cartography, will bring new levels of clarity and control to marine navigation. The successor of Raymarine’s award-winning Axiom-line of MFDs, Axiom+ is engineered for speed, responsiveness, and future expansion.

  • Available in 7-, 9-, and 12-inch display models,
  • Axiom+ comes performance-tuned with a powerful quad-core processor for fast chart redraws, multi-channel sonar views, and augmented reality navigation.

New Electronic Charts

Along with the upgraded Axiom+ line, Raymarine is unveiling a new electronic catalog of LightHouse Charts. 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+ incorporates several new features sure to be appreciated by Caribbean boaters,” says Jim Hands, Marketing Director for FLIR Maritime / Raymarine.  “New IPS screens are 25% brighter than those on previous Axiom MFDs, which improves direct viewing in bright sunshine, while also allowing for wider viewing angles. Our HydroTough nano-coated display also affords improved touch control in all conditions, while Axiom+’s upgraded GPS/GNSS receiver provides greater accuracy, even beneath hardtops, enclosed bridges or in other challenging installations.”

Each model includes a three-year warranty. With models starting at $749, the Axiom+ is available now through Raymarine dealers and retailers. New LightHouse Charts will be released in early fall and will be available with the purchase of any new Axiom+ MFD. Chart prices will start at USD 79.00. https://www.raymarine.com/multifunction-displays/axiom-plus/
