Timed to coincide with the release of the Alpha Performance Displays, LightHouse 4.5 packs a long list of new enhancements for sail racing and cruising yachts. New sailing features include:
Import your custom polar diagram values into Axiom. Axiom can utilise custom polars to help you achieve maximum performance from your yacht. Polars can also be edited on the Axiom display to fine-tune them for your hull.
Axiom's integrated sidebar now supports Vane mode, so your autopilot can steer to a specific wind angle
Import a custom sail plan for your boat, and Axiom can make real-time recommendations for when it's time to raise, reef, or change sails. The sail plan supports both upwind and downwind sailing.
Raymarine has developed a patented technique to calibrate the speed transducer and eliminate tack-to-tack, heel, and linearity errors. Proper calibration of the speed transducer also greatly benefits your wind system’s True Wind Angle and Speed data. Compatible with the DST810 Smart transducer.
Axiom now offers a customisable bar and numerical data displays to indicate trending wind shifts visually. Adjustable averaging time and instant reset capability ensure you are always aware of what the wind is doing.
Automatic Speed Calibration is a patented tool that helps sailors get the most accurate speed possible from their paddlewheel speed transducers.
Steer to Wind autopilot mode in the LightHouse OS provides a new level of control when under sail.
