WILSONVILLE, Ore. (November 13, 2017) - Raymarine is pleased to announce that the full line of Axiom Pro Multifunction Displays is now shipping. Available in 9-, 12-, and 16-inch sizes, the Axiom Pro line expands Raymarine’s award-winning Axiom range of high-performance MFDs available to offshore anglers and performance-minded cruising boaters.

Axiom Pro models are designed around Raymarine’s proven HybridTouch™ control user experience, featuring both a multi-touch touchscreen control of the LightHouse 3 OS along with keypad, trackpad, and a rotary control interaction. The combination of tablet-like touch screen and intuitive keypad operation lets captains efficiently and confidently access all of Axiom Pro’s features in all sea conditions.

Axiom Pro is also available with two different built-in sonar options. Axiom Pro RVX models have dual built-in sonars. RealVision 3D sonar offers CHIRP SideVision, DownVision, conventional CHIRP sonar and full 3D display. A 1kW high-performance CHIRP sonar for deep-water fishing is also built-in. Engineered for cruising and sailing yachts, Axiom Pro S models are equipped with a standard high CHIRP sonar built in. Axiom Pro S models provide accurate CHIRP depth sounding to depths of 900-feet and conventional sonar imaging.

Like the original Axiom series, Axiom Pro models are also powered by Raymarine’s all-new LightHouse 3 operating system running on its next-generation hardware platform. Intuitive design and lightning-fast quad-core processing makes Axiom and Axiom Pro MFDs the fastest, smoothest and easiest to use MFDs on the market today.

LightHouse 3.3 Coming to eS and gS Series

Raymarine is also extending LightHouse 3 operating system to its eS and gS Series lines of multifunction displays. Releasing in December of this year, the new LightHouse 3.3 upgrade will be available as a free upgrade to Raymarine eS Series and gS Series owners. Once upgraded to LigthHouse 3.3, eS and gS Series owners will benefit from faster performance, stunning visuals, and even more intuitive operation.

Upgraded eS and gS models will also be able to network seamlessly with Axiom models, allowing boaters to expand their current onboard systems to include latest-generation features like RealVision 3D sonar.

LightHouse 3.3 will be available in December on Raymarine.com. Axiom Pro models start at $2,299.99 USD and are available from Raymarine’s authorized dealer network

The Axiom's have been doing really well. Customers have been really impressed. Performance and really clean ascetics along with all the functions you could ask for. Great to see the Pro shipping!

The Axiom Pros we have on display were really received well by the many visitors in our booth at the Ft Lauderdale Boat Show a few weeks ago.

Is lighthouse 3 going to be available for A series displays? Last I read it would be available at the end of the summer, but no updates since.

Update 3.3 for the Axiom and Axiom Pro is still scheduled for November. This will allow update of products using Lighthouse II, unfortunately, not for the older units such as the A, C, E Classics, the G or the Widescreen. The minimum hardware and software requirements for both LightHouse II and Lighthouse 3 exceed the capabilities of these older platforms. No new updates will be issued for them.

The press release above states that 3.3 will be available for eS and Gs units only. My A series are less than a year old running lighthouse II. It will be disappointing if they don't extend it to the a series, but not disappointing enough to buy new units lol.

Note that Raymarine made A,C,E and G series products a long time ago, in electronics terms anyway. These are no longer compatible with newest LHII softwares. The newer a,c,e,Es,Gs are totally different products. The Es and Gs are going to be able to run LHIII sw and thus capable to be networked to the same network as Axiom products.

Patiently been waiting on this ES update so I can network it to my Axiom. Although a little anxious about it actually going smoothly, or if it's going to turn out like a iPhone software update and suck and ruin the unit. Fingers crossed. Guess I should go ahead and order the parts needed to network them.

That's what I'm worried about. Love the hybrid touch and really don't want to have to buy a 2nd Axiom or Axiom Pro if it turns out to suck running lh3

It does not specify that it will be for eS and gS only. It does only list those two and I believe that this is due to the connectivity and inter use of those models with the Axiom products.
