Si-Tex Marine Electronics and Jeppesen have teamed up to provide Canadian boaters with comprehensive C-Map by Jeppesen electronic chart coverage at no charge when they purchase any new SI-Tex EC Series chart plotter.
During this special promotion â€” which begins today and runs through December 31, 2011 â€” each SI-TEX EC-5, EC-7 and EC-11 chart plotter will come with a special C-Map Max Lite chart card packaged right in the box. This specialized chart â€” not available for sale separately â€” combines expansive coverage areas with the quality, accuracy and detail boaters have come to expect from C-MAP by Jeppesen. The included compact SD card provides coverage for all of North America.
These charts provide boaters with important details such as depth contours and spot soundings up to 30 meters, NavAids with icons and information, tidal station data and port information. Since these advanced SI-TEX plotters are fully C-MAP MAX compatible, boaters can easily upgrade to an affordable MAX chart card to enjoy added features such as Dynamic NavAids, Dynamic Tides/Currents, Guardian Alarm anti-grounding, detailed harbor charts, aerial imagery, access to the C-Marina port database and more.
The compact EC-5 features a five inch QVGA color LCD display and a choice of internal or external GPS antenna. It is also available with a built-in 600W dual-frequency sounder. SI-TEX's EC-7 boasts a high-definition seven inch WVGA color display, is offered with internal or external antenna and optional built-in 600W dual frequency sounder. This EC-7 is also compatible with SI-TEX's optional MDS Radar Sensor, as well as video input from onboard cameras, for an affordable all-in-one navigation system.
The EC-11 provides navigation and sounder data on a high-definition 10.4 inch SVGA color LCD display ideal for mid-sized to large cruisers, trawlers and sportfishing boats. Designed for integration with SI-TEX's powerful black-box sounder module and optional MDS Radar Sensor (dome or open array), the EC 11's large screen allows for flexible display of important data. It also features two composite video inputs and a VGA video input for integration with cameras, entertainment systems and other onboard electronics. All three EC Series chart plotters are compatible with SI-TEX's black box AIS receiver for enhanced safety.
