New Electronic Charts Offer a New Level of Clarity, Premium Options, and an Enhanced Marine Navigation Experience
ARLINGTON, Va. (May 11, 2021) – FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today the availability of Raymarine LightHouse™ Charts cartography, bringing new levels of clarity and control to marine navigation. Further, LightHouse Charts customers will realize increased convenience with regular updates, expert-curated fishing spots, and access to premier content through a new LightHouse Premium subscription service.
New Raymarine LightHouse Charts are crafted from trusted, official hydrographic sources – the same data used by maritime professionals.

Engineered for both recreational and professional applications, LightHouse Charts allow captains to switch between an official government-style chart presentation or an information-rich leisure chart view. Captains can also choose between four chart color palettes optimized for bright sun, daylight, dusk, and nighttime conditions. Raymarine users can also take advantage of a LightHouse Premium subscription with access to continuous chart updates, an expanded POI library powered by Marinas.com and Reeds, as well as enhanced satellite imagery from Mapbox.
A new, online Raymarine Chart Store is accessible through the link below. The new chart store allows Raymarine users to purchase LightHouse Charts, download updates, and sync premium content with Raymarine Axiom® Multifunction Displays (MFDs) and Raymarine Element™ Sonar/GPS displays.
“Our new LightHouse Chart catalog gives boaters an exciting, powerful, and sophisticated new choice for marine navigation,” says Gregoire Outters, General Manager for the Raymarine brand at FLIR. “Available premium features further elevate the navigation experience, adding unlimited chart updates and graphically rich POI information and detailed satellite imagery.”
New LightHouse Charts are available now with the purchase of any new Axiom+ or Element™ MFD. Charts start at $149.99 USD and include full-country coverage, tides, and animated currents.
