Furuno announced at February’s Miami International Boat Show that they would be releasing new software with the capability to display “C-MAP by Jeppesen” MapMedia Charts on their award winning NavNet 3D system. Following through on their promise, Furuno released version 2.05 software at the end of April, and the new “C-MAP by Jeppesen” MapMedia Charts are now available for purchase. NavNet 3D customers can download the software update for free from their web site at www.FurunoUSA.com, or they may talk to an authorized Furuno dealer to purchase an SD card with the upgrade already loaded. The new “C-MAP by Jeppesen” MapMedia Charts can also be purchased from a Jeppesen or Furuno USA dealer.
Furuno has released the new “C-MAP by Jeppesen” MapMedia vector charts for all of North & Central America, with the rest of the worldwide charts to be released as they are produced. The charts are available in two formats: Wide – Eight regional charts that cover all of the U.S., Canada and Central America/Caribbean; and MegaWide – Two large regions that cover all of North & Central America. The Wide charts have a MSRP price of $300, while the Megawide charts are $600 MSRP. All new NavNet 3D MFD’s now come preloaded with both the free NOAA Raster and Vector charts, as well as three Wide “C-MAP by Jeppesen” MapMedia Charts for the U.S. To use the “C-MAP by Jeppesen” MapMedia Charts, customers will need to purchase an unlock code from their Jeppesen or Furuno USA dealer. NavNet 3D is the only chart plotter on the market allowing users to choose from pre-loaded official NOAA raster and vector charts, or optional “C-MAP by Jeppesen” and “Datacore by Navionics” (outside U.S.) vector cartography. To top it off, all of these chart formats may be loaded and displayed on the same MFD! They can then be easily viewed in traditional 2D or incredible 3D, using NavNet 3D’s patented TimeZero technology.
