High-resolution Graphical Weather Forecasts from Theyr Weather now available for Raymarine users worldwide

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced that the latest Raymarine LightHouse OS now includes a graphical weather forecast (GRIB) viewer app, which enables boaters to access Theyr global weather data on-demand directly on a Raymarine multifunction navigation displays.

The LightHouse GRIB Viewer app utilizes Wi-Fi connectivity to download and display high-resolution Theyr weather forecast information on- screen. Raymarine users simply connect to a marina Wi-Fi, a mobile hotspot, or satellite internet to download the latest forecasts. Theyr is recognized as a leader in delivering precise weather and ocean forecasts for recreational and professional mariners, commercial shipping, and the offshore wind energy industry. The high-detail Theyr weather forecasts include important meteorological information, including wind speed, atmospheric pressure, precipitation, air temperature, sea surface temperature, and wave heights. Boaters in northern Europe can also access tidal stream data, and United States 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" said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. "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."3

To take advantage of Theyr weather, 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 USD or $99 USD for annual subscriptions through www.Raymarine.com/weather. In addition to receiving weather forecasts on Raymarine MFDs, subscribers can also access Theyr's professional weather and ocean forecasts via Theyr's GRIBview mobile and web applications. For boaters that currently use a free GRIB weather service, the LightHouse GRIB viewer app is also compatible with internet sourced GRIB weather forecasts.
