FLIR Systems announced the Raymarine Axiom+, a new powerful series of multifunction displays for anglers, cruisers and sailors, as well as an updated Raymarine LightHouse™ Charts cartography, bringing new levels of clarity and control to marine navigation.
Axiom+ has been engineered for speed, responsiveness, and future expansion. Available in either 7-, 9-, and 12-inch display models, these new displays comes performance-tuned with a powerful quad-core processor for fast chart redraws, multi-channel sonar views, and augmented reality navigation.
Designed for excellent viewing in a range of lighting conditions, Axiom+ models feature a bright IPS LCD that is 25% brighter than any of the previous Axiom models, resulting in improved clarity and wider viewing angles. Thanks to Raymarine’s HydroTough – a nano-coated display, which provides enhanced impact resistance, repels water and oils, and enables accurate touch control in all conditions – Axiom+ also delivers improved touch-screen performance.
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.
Alongside the Axion+ line, Raymarine is unveiling a new electronic catalog of LightHouse Charts, crafted from official hydrographic sources – the same data used by maritime professionals. These charts offer users of Raymarine a new level of clarity and customization, detail, and the ability to explore endless data including points of interest, fishing spots and on-shore destinations.
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. Combine these benefits with our new LightHouse Chart catalog and boaters have an exciting, powerful, and sophisticated new choice for marine navigation,” says Gregoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of the Raymarine brand.
Each model includes a three-year warranty. With Axiom+ models starting at $749 and the chart prices will start at $79.00 USD.
