Raymarine partners with Jeppesen on C-MAP charts

(NASHUA, N.H.) — Committed to giving boaters around the world access to the best charting experience, FLIR Systems is pleased to announce support for C-MAP by Jeppesen cartography in the company’s range of Raymarine multifunction displays. Raymarine and Jeppesen have collaborated to achieve a powerful and flexible navigation experience with support for C-MAP 4D across Raymarine’s range of LightHouse II-based multifunction displays. The Raymarine line of Dragonfly sonar/GPS will also support C-MAP, giving anglers access to Jeppesen’s extensive worldwide map library.

“As with our thermal, sonar, and radar imaging, FLIR is committed to giving our customers the very best in visual navigation information”, says Andy Teich CEO of FLIR Systems. “With our Raymarine line’s support for C-MAP’s high-quality charts and data products we look forward to giving our customers even more chart choices to enhance their time on the water.” 

“We are excited Raymarine customers will soon be able to take advantage of C-MAP by Jeppesen’s complete library of navigational data and value-added products," says James Detar, Jeppesen’s portfolio management director.  “Raymarine’s navigation displays combined with C-MAP by Jeppesen charts will transform the way boaters navigate, with full-featured vector charts, dynamic raster charts, plus 3D and satellite chart options.”

Support for Jeppesen C-MAP cartography comes as part of the regular Raymarine software update program and will be available in LightHouse Release 13 as a free download, due in the early part of 2015.
