I installed mine in 2017. Trouble free. Very fast chart re-draws. Pages and data boxes are very customizable.
Chirp sonar and Downvision are very good. I don't use side scan or 3D much.
One thing I don't like is the chip slot is in the back; pita to do updates if it is flush mounted.
What specifically do you want to know?

It seems like a nice unit. I want to pair it with a Raymarine Radar. I did read on one review that a guy was losing his GPS connection on his chart plotter (with the internal antenna on the chart plotter) he said he was told by Raymarine that he would have to buy an external GPS antenna. Thank you for any feedback......Jughead....

I have not had this issue. However, I can see that issue happening if you block the built in GPS receiver in the MFD.

I don't ever lose GPS but it seems like it is taking longer to get a fix than when my Axiom was new.

I have mine paired with a Quantum Wi-Fi radar ( only run a power cord to it), Evo 100 autopilot, CP370 sonar module and TM260 transducer. I would add another Axiom 9 but I'm out of room.

I would not trust a WiFi connection on Radar. What happens if you lose connection in the fog or Mexico?

Is there any issue obtaining charts for the Axiom? Looking on the Raymarine's Lighthouse charts, I see nothing but "coming soon" when it comes to North America.

After Garmin acquired Navionics, companies like Raymarine and Humminbird are in the process of developing their own mapping software. Until then, Navionics is the way to go.

Axiom with na ionic a here.

I also added a dual micro se card reader into dash so I can easily update the unit software, maps and transfer screenshots at home.

works great and use it with an autopilot
