Raymarine releases powerful new LightHouse Annapolis 3.9 update

Date: 02-May-2019

 

Raymarine’s latest update to its popular LightHouse operating system, Annapolis 3.9, brings powerful new features and benefits to owners of Raymarine MFDs. 

Named after the iconic US coastal city of Annapolis, the new update enables Axiom owners to use their existing thermal cameras and employ Raymarine’s innovative ClearCruise Augmented Reality (AR) to help make smarter, safer decisions in busy waterways and in poor visibility.

By overlaying vital navigational and AIS information directly onto the high-definition (HD) video feed on their Axiom MFDs, ClearCruise AR gives clear, true 360° viewing combined with detailed information about the surrounding waters and the other vessels, landmarks and hazards nearby.

The free and easy to download Annapolis 3.9 update also allows skippers to effortlessly build their own detailed bathymetric charts in real-time! Raymarine’s clever new RealBathy™ uses data from a vessel’s GPS and fishfinder to draw detailed depth contours of the waters below. No chart purchase or subscription is required, just an Axiom MFD, Annapolis 3.9 and a memory card with available space.

Annapolis 3.9 also supports Yamaha Command Link Plus integration making it easy for the skipper to monitor the status of Yamaha engines. Certified by Yamaha, Annapolis 3.9 can monitor up to 4 engines at the same time, along with fuel tanks and batteries, on existing Raymarine MFDs.

Other great Annapolis 3.9 features include intuitive pinch-to-zoom touchscreen control and touch-and-drag range shift; control of DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom drones,; multi-zone volume level control for FUSION marine sound systems and a number of breakthrough benefits for cruising and racing sailors.
