The partnership between HP Watermakers and Raymarine, beginning in 2019, has led to the installation of the HP Watermakers communication app on multifunction displays in the Axiom range.

Raymarine recently introduced the Axiom 2 Pro, which combines chartplotter, fishfinder, radar, autopilot and video in one powerful multifunction display. It is easy to use thanks to Hybrid Touch technology, which combines touchscreen control with an all-weather external keyboard, combined with the intuitive LightHouse operating system.

“The choice of applications, which includes HP Watermakers, has been the subject of careful analysis to select the most used and the most useful for improving the quality of life on board. Our choice fell on HP Watermakers, which was also the first company to develop a communication protocol compatible with our systems,” explains Michelle Hildyard, VP of Product Management and Business Development.

If the customer chooses the Raymarine Axiom system, combining it with an HP watermaker simplifies the installation and management of the fresh water supply system.

And should the watermaker stop working, an alarm with a pop-up appears on the MFD monitor. The instructions page relating to that specific problem opens directly and the owner can then try to reset the system or consult the manual or, easier still, follow the video tutorial to solve the problem independently.

This simple solution allows significant time and money savings, but often also saves the holiday.
