Raymarine introduced its new Axiom multifunction displays at February's Miami International Boat Show. The units — with 7-, 9-, or 12-inch displays — include built-in RealVision 3D sonar, powered by what I found to be a super-intuitive operating system (LightHouse 3). Axioms also feature a speedy quad-core processor and an embedded attitude and heading reference system to stabilize imagery and alleviate issues caused by pitch, roll and slow vessel movement. Axioms pair with an all-in-one down, side, conical and 3-D transducer (available in through-hull and transom-mount), and range in price from $649.99 to $3,349.99.
