The Incredible Raymarine Axiom+ Multifunction Navigational System
Fresh off of winning Editor’s Choice for Best Electronics Award from Boating Magazine, the Raymarine Axiom+ has cemented itself as one of the most essential upgrades for any well-equipped boat on the water. Full of incredible features and loads of memory, this system is the next step in the evolution of navigation technology, and it’s perfect for your Crownline.
Here’s what the Boating Magazine judges had to say: “These units…run a multitude of apps, using an intuitive GUI ripped from a smart TV, and, thanks to Wi-Fi, no pulling radar cable through pipework. What’s not to like?”
Simply put, the Axiom+ is smart. The system is expandable, so its capabilities can grow as needed, and it supports the full range of Raymarine accessories including quantum radar, CHIRP sonar, FLIR thermal cameras, audio integration, instruments, cameras, and Evolution autopilot. Standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity allows connection to the latest Raymarine apps for tablets and smartphones.
The plus(+) units integrate a quad-core processor, multichannel sonar views (including RealVision 3D), augmented-reality navigation, and include up to 16 GB of onboard data storage. All displays employ in-plane switching for better, brighter viewing along with the company’s HydroTough treatment to repel water and oils.
The RealVision 3D provides three-dimensional sonar views, supported by a gyro-mounted sonar unit. This keeps your tech sturdy and dependable while providing crystal clear visuals. The jaw-dropping augmented-reality navigation system uses onboard cameras to call out vessels and locations and provide information such as distance and conditions. It can also show you what your destination looks like, in case you’ve never been there before.
Overall, this is a groundbreaking piece of technology. If you’re looking for an upgrade, you can’t go wrong with this series. Raymarine Axiom+ models start at $749.
