ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeppesen will be highlighting its flagship C-MAP 4D cartography and new compatible chartplotters during the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Visitors from around the world will see for themselves how newly added data and enhancements combine to make C-MAP 4D an even more powerful tool for boaters.
Jeppesen's latest release of C-MAP 4D includes the addition of High Resolution Bathymetry coverage for key offshore grounds and coastal waterways in Eastern Canada. Jeppesen's exclusive High Resolution Bathymetry provides boaters and fishermen with the highest available level of detail for offshore canyons, depressions, pinnacles and other bottom features. This exclusive "picture" of the underwater world is especially useful for bluewater anglers, as the irregularities in the seafloor create deep-sea upwellings that concentrate baitfish and the pelagic gamefish that feed on them. Jeppesen's new High Resolution Bathymetry charts are superior to standard cartography and other competitive products—and are even a major advancement over previous C-MAP bathymetric charts for the region.
Recent C-MAP 4D enhancements also include updated freshwater sportfishing regulations for 18 U.S. states, and updated saltwater sportfishing regulations for 10 key coastal states including California, Louisiana, Massachusetts and New Jersey. Jeppesen has also added new and updated charts for Bahamian waters, a key fishing and cruising destination for Southeast U.S. boaters.
C-MAP 4D is compatible with two of the newest chartplotters from marine electronics leader Furuno—the 5.7" display GP-1670 and 7" display GP-1870. Both are also available with built-in echosounders, providing fishermen with a powerful combination for navigation and fishfinding. These advanced plotters feature accurate 50-channel GPS receivers with standard built-in antennas and bonded, color TFT LCD displays with special Anti-Reflective (AR) glass filters for superior visibility on open boats. These brilliant, sharp color displays are ideal for displaying the rich chart detail provided by C-MAP 4D, whether navigating to the fishing grounds or pinpointing offshore structure.
Boaters can also experience C-MAP 4D on two innovative charting systems from Standard Horizon—the 7" display CPN-700i and the 10.1" display CPN-1010i. Recent upgrades to these touch-screen multi-media navigation systems deliver an improved online and entertainment experience in the marina combined with a state-of-the art navigation and fishing experience using C-MAP 4D.
To help boaters take full advantage of C-MAP 4D's High Resolution Bathymetry and navigation charts, the CPN-700i and CPN-1010i feature 50-channel GPS receivers and bonded, sunlight viewable displays for superior clarity in real-world conditions. Touch-screen capabilities make it easy and intuitive to zoom, rotate and tilt the charts or scroll between various navigation pages. Standard Horizon's Dual Chart Window feature offers split-screen operation with independent zoom levels, providing both a close-in and long-range view simultaneously.
C-MAP 4D cartography gives boaters expansive chart coverage and a variety of advanced features including:
- 3D chart views with high-resolution coastal satellite imagery overlaid onto accurate and up-to-date vector chart data
- Exclusive aerial photos depicting popular harbors, marinas and inlets for added confidence in unfamiliar waters
- Dynamic raster charts that combine a traditional "nautical chart" look with the ability to get more information about chart objects like rocks, navaids or wrecks
- Exclusive Easy Routing feature that automatically creates the safest, shortest route for boaters
- Customizable charts that can grow with your boating needs, such as Jeppesen's Value Added Data, sport fishing info, wreck data, and more
C-MAP 4D gives boaters the ability to add or update chart information as it becomes available, so boaters can always cruise, fish or sail with confidence. For more information about C-MAP 4D cartography and compatible navigation systems, visit www.jeppesen.com/lightmarine.
