Si-Tex Offers C-MAP Chart Promotion

A new promotion announced today by Si-Tex Marine Electronics and Jeppesen provides a free C-MAP MAX Wide electronic chart (a $199 value) with the purchase of any new Si-Tex EC-Series chartplotter.

This promotion is available through dealers across Canada and the US, and runs for all of 2012.

Each Si-Tex EC-5, EC-7 and EC-11 chart plotter will come with an appropriate C-MAP MAX Wide SD Card packaged right in the box (the chart included will be based on the region of sale). 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 new, high-performance Metadata AIS modules for enhanced safety.

Suggested retail price for EC-5 series chart plotters starts at $599, making this free chart offer especially appealing. The MSRP of the EC-7 series chart plotters starts at $999 while the EC-11 begins at $1,899.

"We've taken steps to make this promotion not only valuable, but also as easy as possible for boaters across the U.S. and Canada,' said Si-Tex Vice President/Sales Allen Schneider. "There are no extra purchases to make or rebate forms to fill out. When you purchase any one of these three new EC Series units, the full C-MAP MAX chart you need will be pre-packaged right in the box.'
