Raymarine Announces LightHouse 4 for Boaters
The latest operating system for Raymarine Axiom chartplotters unlocks new levels of ease of use, personalization, features, and functionality
Fareham, UK (April 4, 2022) – Raymarine announces the next generation of the LightHouse Operating System for all boaters. New LightHouse 4 delivers even easier operation, exciting personalization options, and several new features. As with all Raymarine software upgrades, LightHouse 4 is available to all Axiom, Axiom+, Axiom Pro, and Axiom XL owners completely free as a downloadable update.
Revised menu structures enable easier use of the depth of Axiom features, with personalized images now an option for all boaters to make their boat even more their own. Feature improvements include deeper integration with Mercury Engines, Sirius XM Fish Mapping and Navionics charts to heighten a captain’s awareness at the helm. New dynamic tiles on the homescreen allow the presentation of navigation, NMEA2000 or SeaTalkng data immediately available on start up.
Whether cruising, fishing, or sailing, the powerful combination of Raymarine Axiom chartplotter displays and the LightHouse operating system affords captains an elite-level awareness.
Easier to Use
New LightHouse 4 OS provides a refined visual experience. Simplified menus make tapping into the power of Axiom faster and easier than ever. Longer pull-up menus are now nested and more intuitive to read and operate. LightHouse Apps that integrate control or provide information from marine integration partners like Seakeeper, Victron, Lumishore, and a host of others are now launchable directly from the LightHouse Home Screen, and key LightHouse Apps are now viewable in split-screen configurations. Additionally, the critical MOB touch key has been relocated to share prominent space on the Home Screen.
LightHouse 4 offers more options than ever to personalize how Axiom looks and functions. Captains can now add a favorite photo to the Home Screen background or create dynamic dashboard tiles to keep them informed of real-time instrument and navigation data right from the home screen display.
Key New Features
LightHouse 4 takes integration with Mercury Marine Vessel View to the next level, offering Active Exhaust Volume control, a new and refined Engine Data Summary page, and more. Anglers in North America will also appreciate the industry-best integration with SiriusXM Fish Mapping, which offers regularly updated science-based fishing-data chart overlays. SiriusXM Fish Mapping helps anglers quickly visualize and navigate to the most productive offshore fishing grounds. The LightHouse 4 update allows SiriusXM Fish Mapping data to be directly overlaid and viewed on premium fishing charts like Raymarine LightHouse Charts, Navionics, C-MAP, CMOR, and Strikelines in North American coastal regions.
Other Exciting Upgrades
LightHouse 4 delivers a host of additional key upgrades, including active route line visual enhancements, new levels of audio control, and more. Of particular interest to Navionics chart users, LightHouse 4 beautifully supports the display of high-resolution bathymetric data and satellite imagery that comes bundled with new Navionics Platinum+ charts.
