Raymarine’s LightHouse OS is the operating system that powers every Raymarine Axiom-series chartplotter and multifunction display. LightHouse OS was built to be exceptionally easy to use, without the need for extensive reading or training. Using a Smartphone-inspired, tiled interface you can quickly and easily access your favorite boating applications right from the Axiom home screen.
LightHouse OS is also highly customizable. Windows can be reconfigured with a few touches to show full-screen or split-screen views of your chart, radar, sonar, cameras, instrument data, and much more.
LightHouse OS is also upgradeable. Raymarine publishes regular, free updates that add new features to Axiom, resolve bugs, and optimize the performance of the system. Updates can be added by connecting Axiom’s Wi-Fi to a nearby hotspot or mobile device and installing them right from the Internet. Updates can also be downloaded in advance from Raymarine.com, placed on a memory card, and uploaded into Axiom.
LightHouse 4 is the latest release of the operating system and is compatible with ALL Axiom-series chartplotters and multifunction displays. Axiom-series units that have not been recently updated might also be found running a version of LightHouse 3, the prior release.
We always suggest updating your Axiom displays to the latest LightHouse 4 version to make sure you are up-to-date on the latest features and fixes. When you update your Axiom display you can also update your other Raymarine sensors and accessories like radar, autopilot, instruments, etc.
With every update we add new features and capabilities to LightHouse OS, adding more capabilitiy to Axiom and your entire Raymarine system. You can always find the full software update history here on Raymarine.com, but here are some examples of new features and capabilities added to LightHouse OS since it was first launched.
And many, many more!
