RayControl allows you to remotely view and control your Raymarine e,c,ES and Axiom Multi-Functional Display from your iPad.
iOS Devices = Best performance achieved on iPad 2 or better.
Multi-Functional Display software requirement – v 3.15 or later.
Compatible displays (MFDs) – e,c,ES and Axiom range of WiFi enabled MFDs
Remotely control and view electronic charting, sonar, radar, and even thermal night vision, right from your tablet.
RayControl emulates Raymarine MFDs with touch screen interaction and a virtual slide-out MFD keypad. The slide out keypad gives you control of all MFD functions and the virtual uni-controller allows you to rotate through menus and adjustments effortlessly.
To use this app please upgrade your Raymarine c-Series or e-Series Multi-Functional Display to software version 3.15 or later.
Software upgrades are available for free at www.raymarine.com/support.
Download the RayControl app, and install it on your device.
Next, connect to your Multifunction Display via Wi-Fi (see MFD operators manual for Wi-Fi setup details).
When the Wi-Fi connection is established, launch the app. You should now see the same image on your mobile device as you do on your Raymarine c-Series or e-Series multifunction display.
Note - autopilot activation/deactivation is not possible via a mobile device.
This version adds support for the new Axiom range of Raymarine displays
Ratings and Reviews
This would have got 5 stars no question if one, seemingly obvious, feature was enabled.
Why is it that I cannot sit in my cabin when its raining and affect my course? if I try (while autopilot is engaged) I get an error - so clearly this is as designed and not an oversight.
Raymarine, any thoughts on your design ideas here? I'd love to give you 5 stars!
Works as advertised
This is much like the RayView app, but adds the ability to control the chart plotter as if you are sitting in front of it.
The only drawback is the resolution on the iPad is a little low, much like with the RayView app.
Great app none the less. Cheaper than buying a repeater!
Although this app performs reasonably well, the resolution on an iPad4 is so poor it's like stepping back 20 years in plotter displays. Another minor point is the screen refresh which displays garbage when panning the chart. It is also slow to refresh.
Raymarine needs to try much harder if they are to impress.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
