Raymarine Inc. announced that its new Raymarine E-Series Widescreen product with HybridTouch multifunction display will come with C-MAP by Jeppesen cartography as a standard feature. E-Series Widescreen customers will also have the option to upgrade to Jeppesen Marine's new C-MAP 4D cartography, which is said to offer boaters a virtual 3D world display enhanced with satellite photos.
“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 E-Series Widescreen and C-Map 4D Cartography will significantly enhance the navigation experience for recreational boaters,” agreed 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.”
The E-Series Widescreen display are available preloaded with coastal charts for Canada and the United States; optional 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 designed to be future-proof, allowing boaters to easily update and add new data to their existing charts as it becomes available.
