Newest navigation technologies on display at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
Boaters from around the world are coming together in sunny Florida for the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Wednesday, October 31 through Sunday, November 4. Be sure to make plans to visit FLIR Maritime and Raymarine electronics in the Bahia Mar Electronics Tent. The array of cutting-edge navigation technologies is not-to-be missed.
Your View Made Better, with ClearCruise™ AR
New for this season is ClearCruise Augmented Reality, an exciting technology that makes it easier than ever for boaters to understand the navigational environment around them. Available exclusively on Raymarine’s Axiom series multifunction displays, ClearCruise AR provides live HD video feeds of the boat’s surroundings overlaid with dynamic graphics that clearly identify navigation aids, automatic identification system (AIS) contacts and saved waypoints. Raymarine’s powerful new AR200 Augmented Reality Stabilization Module delivers stable video and precision alignment to the entire AR experience. The system can support up to 10 high-definition feeds from Raymarine CAM210IP and CAM220IP marine cameras for complete 360° coverage, if desired.
ClearCruise Augmented Reality for Axiom MFDs enhances the real-world view around your boat.
New Apps for Entertainment, Integration and Communications
Raymarine will also be showcasing its new LightHouse Apps for Axiom multifunction displays. Axiom Apps lets select third-party applications run on the LightHouse 3 operating system. Axiom Apps include titles from leading entertainment providers like Netflix and Spotify, as well as marine-industry partners like Seakeeper, Lumishore, Mazu and Theyr. Not only can you stream entertainment, but also control things like underwater lighting and gyro stabilization. Apps can also provide access to Iridium satellite communications and worldwide weather data. LightHouse Apps is a flexible, expandable system that allows new technologies to be easily deployed on the Axiom LightHouse 3 platform. Interested developers and industry partners are invited to speak with Raymarine representatives about deploying their applications as LightHouse Apps.
Axiom Apps include exciting new capabilities like satellite email connectivity from Mazu Marine.
Next-Generation Digital Charts for Cruisers and Anglers
Raymarine will also be offering a special preview of its new LightHouse NC2 Digital Chart platform at the show. LightHouse NC2 charts for North America are coming soon, with additional international regions to follow. Built from official hydrographic data sources for superior accuracy, LightHouse NC2 charts are perfect for cruising and fishing boaters alike. They utilize an all-new color palette and icon set optimized for clarity and instant recognition. Anglers will love the built-in Fishing Hotspots marked fishing areas depicting detailed information on local fish species, techniques and local knowledge from expert anglers. The upcoming LightHouse NC2 North America charts cover coastal waters, the Great Lakes, as well as inland lakes, rivers and ponds. Watch for LightHouse NC2 charts to become available later this fall.
LightHouse NC2 Charts are accurate, easy to read and packed with information vital to cruising and fishing boaters.
