Jeppesen, a subsidiary of The Boeing Company, is teaming with marine electronics leader Furuno and MapMedia to develop NavNet 3-D compatible C-MAP by Jeppesen vector charts.

This will allow boaters to enjoy the features and functionality of the NavNet 3-D system, while navigating with C-MAP by Jeppesen chart data.

"Our goal is to ensure that Furuno NavNet 3-D customers have access to the most reliable chart data available," said James Detar, Jeppesen's light marine division director, in a statement.

"Boaters will be able to view our chart data in traditional 2-D or amazing 3-D presentations, using NavNet 3-D's patented TimeZero technology," he added. "We are very excited, because we know this is something that navigators around the world have been waiting for."
