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.
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.
CMAP 4D for Raymarine.
“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.
