LightHouse 3 operating system and RealVision 3D sonar now available to owners of Raymarine’s popular eS and gS-Series multifunction displays

WILSONVILLE, OR (30 May 2018) – Boat owners around the world continue to praise the unique features of Raymarine’s Axiom and Axiom Pro multifunction displays—primarily, their fast and fluid LightHouse 3 operating system, along with their powerful CHIRP DownVision, CHIRP SideVision, High CHIRP, RealVision 3D and 1kW CHIRP sonar capabilities.

Now, owners of Raymarine’s popular eS and gS-Series multifunction displays can unlock these high-performance tools.

LightHouse 3 OS for eS and gS Series

LightHouse 3 is the powerful operating system behind Raymarine’s new-generation Axiom and Axiom Pro multifunction displays. Owners of Raymarine’s popular eS and gS-Series multifunction display systems currently running LightHouse 2 can now upgrade to LightHouse 3 with a fast and free software update. Simply download the update from Raymarine.com to any microSD memory card, insert it into your display, and you’ll be running the latest technology in minutes.

LightHouse 3 is fast, fluid and easy to learn. The operating system’s streamlined design brings your most commonly used features forward with a menu system that is simple and intuitive. Easily customized to your style of boating, fishing or cruising, LightHouse 3 offers bold and simple home screen icons that are easily customized with just a few touches.

Perhaps the most sought-after feature offered via LightHouse 3 is Raymarine’s new RealVision 3D sonar. Previously available on select Axiom and Axiom Pro systems only, fishermen who upgrade their current eS or gS-Series systems to LightHouse 3 can now unlock the power of Raymarine’s latest sonar technology using the all-new RVX1000 3D CHIRP Sonar Module.

RVX1000: RealVision 3D + 1kW Sonar for eS and gS Series

Based on the same powerful sonar technology found in Axiom Pro RVX, the RVX1000 is a black-box sonar with CHIRP DownVision, CHIRP SideVision, High CHIRP, RealVision 3D and 1kW CHIRP sonar capabilities. Connect your transducers, plug RVX1000 into your eS or gS-network with a Raynet network cable, and you’re ready to see the underwater world in amazing RealVision 3D.

RVX1000 has dual transducer connections. Simply plug in any RV100 or RV200 series transducer to enable RealVision 3D sonar. RVX1000 is also equipped with a second transducer port for 1kW CHIRP sonar and supports a wide selection of CHIRP and non-CHIRP transducers from Airmar Technology. RVX1000’s 1kW sonar transmits in the CHIRP low, medium and high bands, as well as traditional 50/200 kHz mode.

RVX1000 is an all-in-one solution that offers a traditional sonar display for detecting gamefish, baitfish and structure in depths from two to 4,000 feet, while also depicting the underwater world with stunning RealVision3D, DownVision and SideVision imagery. RVX1000 has its own onboard quad-core processor and extensive built-in memory to ensure a fast and seamless experience. It’s the ultimate sonar tool for fishermen, divers, and explorers everywhere.

RVX1000 is available now from Raymarine dealers worldwide. Further information here
