Your Raymarine
All Raymarine displays are compatible with the full range of Navionics chart cards: Navionics+, Navionics Updates, Platinum+ and HotMaps Platinum. For the best experience and most current feature set, be sure your Raymarine software is up to date.

LightHouse II Release 17 software, released in May 2016, introduces Navionics Dock-to-dock Autorouting, SonarChart Live and Advanced Map Options. Additional requirements for new functionality are a Navionics+, Navionics Updates, Platinum+ or HotMaps Platinum card that has an active chart updates subscription and has been updated after April 2016 at navionics.com or at a dealer. Another way to update is by using the Plotter Sync feature with Navionics mobile apps for iPhone and iPad starting with version 8.5.1 and Android version 6.3. Owners of Navionics Silver, Gold and HotMaps Premium can take advantage of this amazing set of features by upgrading with Navionics Updates.

Autorouting and Dock-to-dock Autorouting
Autorouting will calculate and display the shortest, unobstructed route between two points, customized according to the boat’s draft and height as entered by the user. The automated tool takes into consideration depth, bridges, cables, restricted areas and other areas where navigation is forbidden. Available for a, c, e, eS and gS Series MFDs.

Dock-to-dock Autorouting, a unique breakthrough in boating navigation, quickly calculates a detailed route, even through narrow passages and channels, based on chart data and navigation aids. Available for Raymarine MFDs with software updated to LightHouse II Release 17 (May 2016). See video.

SonarChart™ and SonarChart™ Live
SonarChart is an award-winning 1 ft/0.5 m HD bathymetry map that is continuously improved with sonar logs uploaded by boaters. SonarChart Live allows users to create new personal 1 ft/0.5 m HD bathymetry maps that display in real time while navigating. SonarChart™ Live is also an excellent way to monitor the improvements your survey will bring to the SonarChart™ because contours are instantly seen while collecting sonar logs. See video. Boaters who own Raymarine multi-function displays with software updated to LightHouse II Release 17 can view SonarChart Live directly on their plotter screen. Additional requirements are a Navionics+, Navionics Updates, Platinum+ or HotMaps Platinum card that has an active chart updates subscription and has been updated after April 2016 at navionics.com or by a dealer. Another way to update is by using the Plotter Sync feature with Navionics mobile apps for iPhone and iPad starting with version 8.5.1 and Android version 6.3. Owners of Navionics Silver, Gold and HotMaps Premium can take advantage of this amazing set of features by upgrading with Navionics Updates.
