Exciting news was released today as the successor to Raymarine’s award-winning Axiom® line of MFDs was announced. Axiom+ is engineered for speed, responsiveness, and future expansion and is available in 7-, 9-, and 12-inch display models
The new Axiom+ 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 percent brighter than previous Axiom models, resulting in improved clarity and wider viewing angles.
Axiom+ also delivers improved touch-screen performance 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. Simply put, it builds upon what boaters love about Axiom MFDs.
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.
Available at Raymarine dealers starting today, the 7-inch Axiom+ starts at $749, the 9-inch Axiom+ starts at $1,099 and the 12-inch Axiom+ starts at $2,499.
Along with the upgraded Axiom+ line, Raymarine is also unveiling a new electronic catalog of LightHouse Charts today as well. 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.
