Raymarine announces an all-new family of Raymarine
MFDs called Axiom, game-changers poised to shake up the marine
electronics industry.

Consider the Merriam-Webster definition of "axiom": "a statement
accepted as true as the basis for argument or inference" or "an
established rule or principle or a self-evident truth." The word
is derived from the Greek axios and Latin axioma meaning
"something worthy."

Indeed, 'AXIOM' is the perfect name for Raymarine's powerful new
multifunction navigation system. With available built-in
RealVision 3D sonar, the all new LightHouse 3 operating system,
and blazing quad-core performance, AXIOM represents an entirely
new paradigm of navigational and fish-finding performance.

The Raymarine Axiom MFD family features lifelike imagery via
Raymarine's exclusive RealVision 3D for superior underwater fish
and structure identification. The new rugged, all-glass touch
screens are available in 7-, 9-, and 12.1-inch display sizes and
come pre-installed with Raymarine's new LightHouse 3 operating
system. Combined with Axiom's fast quad core processor,
LightHouse 3 delivers an intuitive and powerful navigation
experience through a redesigned interface that is quick to learn
and easy to personalize.

NEW RealVision 3D Sonar

RealVision 3D Sonar represents technology anglers have been
asking for since day one - the ability to see what's below,
behind, and to the sides of the boat, all at once and in
three-dimensions. With blazing quad-core processor performance,
RealVision 3D displays the entire underwater world-including
structure, cover, fish and forage-in stunning detail. The user
can readily pan, tilt and zoom the 3D image to examine from any
angle, even from unique POVs like standing on the lake bottom and
looking up to the bottom of the boat.

See a piece of cover you want to explore? Or perhaps a large
group of bottom-hugging fish or roaming pelagics? A simple tap on
the point-of-interest anywhere in the three-dimensional space
allows easy waypointing that appears immediately in chart view.

Yes, via Axiom, Raymarine brings anglers a whole new way of
looking at underwater data and endless customization to meet
individual needs, all from one all-inclusive transducer, no black
box required.

RealVision 3D transducers combine CHIRP DownVision, CHIRP
SideVision, High Frequency CHIRP, and RealVision 3D into a single
transducer housing. Additionally, Raymarine's gyro-stabilized
sonar technology compensates for boat movement, delivering
life-like 3D sonar imagery. With settings up to 300 feet left and
right and up to 300 feet deep, surveying entire water bodies has
never been easier and faster.

Second only to draining a lake, RealVision 3D finally gives
anglers, divers, search and rescue teams, and boaters a true,
easy-to-understand view of bottom topography, debris, and fish.
The missing link between sonar, chartplotting, and side- and
down-looking technologies has arrived, providing users with a
comprehensive and true representation of what's below.

State-of-the-art OS and Hardware

Raymarine engineers listened to customers who asked for a more
powerful and intuitive user experience. The result? LightHouse 3,
a fast, fluid, and easy-to-use interface that puts you in
complete command with just a few touches. LightHouse LiveView
Menu Controls allow users to easily customize the chart and see
the navigation display change in real time. The addition of Smart
Context Windows and New Chart Modes provide uncluttered menus
with quick access to Simple, Detailed, and Fishing chart modes.

One feature of marine electronics often overlooked is the
processor, which dictates the speed and ease when running
numerous features at once. At the heart of each Axiom unit is an
integral piece of hardware: a quad-core CPU. This allows the user
to boot up quickly, as well run numerous screen views
simultaneously with multiple windows, databoxes, real-time
adjustments, all while Axiom is running numerous background
tasks.
