THE LATEST upgrade to Raymarine’s popular LightHouse operating system provides complete access to the setup, calibration and operational features of the new Cyclone radar range.

Named Hvar, the new 3.16 upgrade is now available to owners of Axiom, Axiom+, Axiom Pro, Axiom XL multifunction displays, as well as the RVX1000 3D Sonar Module.

Hvar also introduces support for Cyclops Marine’s wide range of marine-specific load cell sensors. Using Havr, yacht owners will now be able to display their rig load data in Axiom’s Dashboard app.

LightHouse Hvar enables the display of LightHouse Apps from Seakeeper, Quick, Lumishore, ShadowCaster, Mazu (and a number of other marine hardware partners) in the LightHouse 3 windowed interface. It also introduces colour-coded alarm warnings, information popups and helm grouping when linked to Mercury SmartCraft Connect systems.

Those who use Raymarines Quantum 2 radars can now use Hvar to create and enable ‘no-transmit’ zones, effectively preventing the radar from transmitting in selected directions.

Other upgrades include improvements to Anchor Mode, sea temperature calibration and depth, heading and distance units.
