Merrimack, N.H. and Denver, CO.
– September 1, 2009 – Raymarine, Inc., a world leader in marine electronics
, and navigation
expert Jeppesen Marine
today announced that C-MAP by Jeppesen cartography will come standard on the new Raymarine E-Series Widescreen with HybridTouch multifunction display. This marks the reunion of Raymarine navigation
displays with C-MAP by Jeppesen technology and a powerful new partnership
between the well-known marine electronics
and navigation leaders. E-Series Widescreen customers will also have the option to upgrade to Jeppesen Marine’s new C-MAP 4D cartography, which offers boaters a virtual 3D world display enhanced with satellite
photos and Jeppesen Marine’s unrivaled navigation detail and accuracy.
“Both Jeppesen and Raymarine have a long history
of quality, customer loyalty and leading the charge in introducing new technology to our respective markets,” said James Detar, director of Light Marine for Jeppesen Marine. “We’re eager to meld those two histories together to redefine the future of marine navigation and literally change the way boaters see their world.”
The addition of C-MAP by Jeppesen charts
means Raymarine customers will have access to the most up-to-date navigation information available. Because Jeppesen Marine maintains a constant focus on updating its database, the entire product lineup — C-MAP NT+, C-MAP MAX, and the new C-MAP 4D — is updated at least twice per year.
“The E-Series Widescreen and C-Map 4D Cartography will significantly enhance the navigation experience for recreational boaters,” said Peter Ward, executive chairman of Raymarine. “We share Jeppesen’s unwavering commitment to quality and accuracy, and we’re excited about the opportunities this partnership
will bring. After seeing the E-Series Widescreen with C-MAP by Jeppesen charts
we think our customers will be as well.”
Three versions of the E-Series Widescreen display are available preloaded with the choice of coastal charts for the USA and Canada
; and South America
and APAC. Customers can choose to upgrade to C-MAP 4D from Jeppesen Marine to experience 3D charting for improved situational awareness and satellite
image overlay. In addition, C-MAP 4D charts provide access to raster charts, giving boaters an on-screen view of their familiar paper navigation charts. C-MAP 4D is also future proof, allowing boaters to easily update and add new data to their existing charts.
