Raymarine adds weather forecast viewer app for MFDs

FLIR Systems Inc. said the latest Raymarine LightHouse OS now includes a graphical weather forecast viewer app, which enables boaters to access Theyr global weather data on demand directly on Raymarine multifunction navigation displays.

The LightHouse GRIB Viewer app uses Wi-Fi connectivity to download and display high-resolution Theyr weather forecast information on-screen.

The high-detail Theyr weather forecasts offer meteorological information, including wind speed, atmospheric pressure, precipitation, air temperature, sea surface temperature and wave heights.

Boaters in northern Europe also can access tidal stream data; U.S. boaters have access to NEXRAD Doppler weather radar.

“We are thrilled to offer boaters around the world access to current weather forecast data on demand,” Grégoire Outters, vice president and general manager of FLIR Maritime, said in a statement. “Knowing what the weather will bring is vitally important to boaters everywhere, whether they are coastal cruising or making an extended offshore passage. The high-resolution weather data from Theyr makes it possible for our customers to navigate safely and more efficiently.”

To take advantage of Theyr weather (theyr.com), Raymarine MFD users can download the latest LightHouse OS update at Raymarine.com. Theyr’s Global Precision Weather forecast service is available as a 30-day free trial and monthly for $14.95 or $99 for annual subscriptions through Raymarine.com/weather.

In addition to receiving weather forecasts on Raymarine MFDs, subscribers also can access Theyr’s weather and ocean forecasts via Theyr’s GRIBview mobile and web applications.
