Noted, I am not the OP, I have been back and forth with RM for a month and a half, it is now working as advertised but it took a sea of emails and hours of phone calls to get the new Axiom Pro 9s to interface with the pre loaded RM mapsto work properly. I consider the set up of their maps part of the lighthouse 3 system and for me it was a frustrating ordeal.
I am used to Apple products as a point of comparison.

Re: Raymarine Axiom vs Axiom Pro

I replaced our C90 MFD with the Axiom 9 RV over a year ago and have been impressed with its performance and reliability. What I do not like is that the access to the micro SD card containing the charts is on the back of the unit. Because of that, I have to remove the whole unit in order to update the charts. On the Pro, it is accessible from the front just like the C90 was. In the end, I decided not to pay double the cost for that convenience and installed our unit so that it can be removed without too much trouble. The touch only has given me no problems as of yet. We have back up systems just in case.

Good luck,

Re: Raymarine Axiom vs Axiom Pro

Raymarine makes a separate SD card reader that can be used with the Axiom so you can swap out nav cards quicker.

+1
I have Axiom on the sailboat and new Garmin on the power boat.
Give me RM anytime and Garmin never.
