JEPPESEN’S C­MAP 4D CHARTS NOW COMPATIBLE WITH RAYMARINE

NEW AND EXISTING RAYMARINE MFDs AND DRAGONFLY CHARTPLOTTERS

Cape Cod, Mass, June 15, 2015— Jeppesen’s C­MAP 4D electronic charts are now compatible with a range of new Raymarine Multifunction Displays (MFDs) and Dragonfly chartplotters, bringing trusted C­MAP data and a host of innovative features to a broad audience of boaters around the world.

C-MAP 4D For Raymarine

In addition to working with new ­model Raymarine MFDs, C­MAP 4D is also compatible with existing Raymarine MFDs sold after December 2011 (once owners take advantage of a free update to Raymarine’s latest LightHouse™ II software). This update is currently available through Raymarine’s website or through authorized Raymarine dealers.

“We are excited Raymarine customers will be able to take advantage of C­MAP by Jeppesen’s complete library of navigational data and Value­Added products,” says James Detar, Jeppesen’s portfolio management director.
“Raymarine’s navigational displays combined with C­MAP by Jeppesen charts will transform the way boaters navigate, with full­featured vector charts and dynamic raster charts, plus 3D and satellite chart options.” He further states that Jeppesen and Raymarine are working in partnership to bring additional navigation functions and features to boaters in the near future. “We are actively engaged in ongoing efforts to develop new features that will enhance on­water enjoyment for cruisers, sailors and fishermen. Our technologies will continue to evolve together, and it will be boaters around the globe who reap the benefits,” says Detar.

The latest R14 software update (released May 7, 2015) now enables a powerful C­MAP route planning function called Easy Routing. Easy Routing is designed to automatically plot the shortest, safest course for boaters based on the vessel’s safe draft, beam and height. Only enabled when using Jeppesen’s C­MAP 4D MAX+ chart data, Easy Routing allows for easy creation of routes up to 100 nautical miles, giving boaters a streamlined way to plot a route that they can then check and save as a route to use. Among the many additional C­MAP 4D features included that Raymarine customers can enjoy are Dynamic Tides & Currents (real time and predictions), detailed layouts of thousands of marinas (including slip spaces, services, facilities and other valuable dockside information), Dynamic Raster Charts, Multi­Language Chart Text capabilities and more.

“We are committed to giving our customers the ability to choose the very best in visual navigation information,” says Gregoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. “And with our powerful and easy to use LightHouse II operating system our customers can navigate with Jeppesen’s information rich C­MAP charts alongside our radar, sonar, and thermal night vision applications. Even our Dragonfly customers can take advantage of C­MAP charts when navigating to their favourite fishing spot.”

C­MAP 4D also gives Raymarine users stunning 3D chart views, along with high­resolution coastal satellite imagery that can be overlaid onto the accurate 2D/3D vector charts for enhanced situational awareness.
Combined with Jeppesen’s exclusive aerial photos of popular harbors, marinas and inlets, these accurate images can give boaters added confidence when navigating unfamiliar waters.

Sailors and cruisers in particular will appreciate Jeppesen’s unique Dynamic Raster Chart view, taking a traditional paper­chart look and bringing it to “life” with features like 2D or 3D viewing and the ability to access hidden details on significant chart objects, obstacles, buoys, lights and more.

Coastal and offshore anglers will benefit from Jeppesen’s exclusive High­Resolution Bathymetric (HRB) data, delivering the highest available detail for underwater pinnacles, ledges, depressions, canyons and other bottom contour features that concentrate baitfish and gamefish. C­MAP 4D also offers anglers Jeppesen’s exclusive library of Sport Fishing Data, providing important intelligence for thousands of wrecks and reefs, along with Fish ID photos, fishing tips, updated regional sportfishing regulations and state records.

Jeppesen and Raymarine have teamed up to make the move to C­MAP charts easy. New Raymarine MFDs can come bundled with C­MAP Essentials — a basic version of C­MAP 4D that covers all U.S. coastal waters along with 12,900 lakes, 1,900 High Definition lakes and the Great Lakes on one card. Purchasers can take advantage of special offers to move up to a full­featured C­MAP MAX+ 4D Local chart for free, or buy a C­MAP 4D MAX+ Wide chart at a 40% discount. C­MAP 4D Wide coverage titles deliver all the rich 4D detail and features with expansive coverage that’s more than enough to meet the needs of even far ranging boaters.

Newly purchased Raymarine Dragonfly chartplotters can also come bundled with free C­MAP Essentials nationwide chart coverage. Owners of these units will also have the ability to move up to a full­featured C­MAP 4D Local chart for free, or buy a C­MAP 4D Wide chart at a 40% discount.
