A. LightHouse 3.1 adds several new features to the Axiom Platform including:
A. Over the next several months we plan to add many features to the LightHouse 3 operating system that are currently supported in Lighthouse II. These features and enhancements include:
We are committed to delivering as many new features and functionality as possible with each release of LightHouse 3, however because of the rigorous testing and quality assurance measures we put in place with each edition of the LightHouse OS, not every future feature and enhancement is guaranteed in each release. New features and enhancements that don’t make cut will be prioritized in the next edition of LightHouse 3.
Raymarine is planning the following upcoming releases for LightHouse 3 in the near future:
Like our LightHouse II OS, Raymarine is committed to offering regular LightHouse 3 updates with new and expanded features, however the LightHouse release schedule above is subject to change.
A. Mobile apps support is coming to Axiom and LightHouse 3 with the release of LightHouse 3.1, in July. Watch your mobile device and be sure to download the latest versions of our apps which will be released into the app stores at the same time.
A. Raymarine is actively working with Navionics to deliver Dock to dock Autorouting before the end of the year.
A. LightHouse 3 and 3.1 support remote control of Rockford Fosgate head units only. We are planning to add control of FUSION marine stereo systems with LightHouse version 3.2, coming in September.
A. Two different sources of weather information are coming for LightHouse 3 and Axiom. The Theyr GRIB Viewer app is in development which offers worldwide weather data options. We are also working with our partner SiriusXM to deliver a new Marine Weather app for that service.
We expect to deliver both applications before the end of the year.
Every Axiom and Axiom Pro system has built-in Bluetooth wireless networking. We plan to activate it for use with select accessories like the RCU-3 remote later this year.
Raymarine is actively working on developing advanced sailing tools for LightHouse 3 including lay lines, start line management, race course builder, and more. We hope to release this Spring 2018.
A. Raymarine plans to offer the new LightHouse 3 operating system as an update to owners of select LightHouse II products. We expect to have this software available in November. Additional information about LightHouse II to LightHouse 3 upgrades will be made available soon.
Raymarine is targeting November 2017 for release of the LightHouse 3 update for select LightHouse II products. This release will happen at the same time we release LightHouse 3.3 for Axiom and Axiom Pro.
A. No. Some of Axiom and Axiom Pro’s features are created in software, and will be made available via update. Other Axiom features are dependent on the Axiom platform’s advanced hardware and won’t work on upgraded LightHouse II hardware.
For example, RealVision 3D Sonar is dependent on the new sonar hardware built into Axiom and Axiom Pro MFDs, and the appropriate transducer. If you don’t have that sonar hardware onboard your boat, you will not be able to access RealVision 3D on upgraded products.
Before upgrading from LightHouse II to LightHouse 3, be sure to thoroughly read the accompanying software release notes and feature list. We will provide a detailed listing and comparison of LightHouse II vs. LightHouse 3 features so you can decide whether the upgrade is right for you.
While it is our desire to offer as many LightHouse II features as possible in LightHouse 3, it may not be possible to accommodate 100% of them at launch. The provided release notes will help you to best decide if a LightHouse 3 upgrade is right for you.
Unfortunately, no. The minimum hardware and software requirements for both LightHouse II and Lighthouse 3 exceed the capabilities of these older platforms. No new updates will be issued for them.
