FLIR and Jeppesen join on Raymarine line

Publish date:

FLIR Systems is supporting C-MAP by Jeppesen cartography in the company’s range of Raymarine multifunction displays.

Raymarine and Jeppesen have collaborated to support C-MAP 4D across Raymarine’s range of LightHouse II-based multifunction displays.

The Raymarine line of Dragonfly Sonar/GPS also will support C-MAP, giving anglers access to Jeppesen’s worldwide map library.

“As with our thermal, sonar and radar imaging, FLIR is committed to giving our customers the very best in visual navigation information,” FLIR Systems CEO Andy Teich said in a statement. “With our Raymarine line’s support for C-MAP’s high-quality charts and data products, we look forward to giving our customers even more chart choices to enhance their time on the water.”

“We are excited Raymarine customers will soon be able to take advantage of C-MAP by Jeppesen’s complete library of navigational data and value-added products,” said James Detar, Jeppesen’s portfolio management director. “Raymarine’s navigation displays, combined with C-MAP by Jeppesen charts, will transform the way boaters navigate with full-featured vector charts, dynamic raster charts, plus 3D and satellite chart options.”

Support for Jeppesen C-MAP cartography comes as part of the regular Raymarine software update program and will be available in LightHouse Release 13 as a free download, due in early 2015.
