Users will be able to update, choose or change their electronic charts at any time without having to buy new cartography cartridges, says Michelle Buckalew, Jeppesen senior marketing manager. C-MAP 4-D content will be updated at least twice per year, says Buckalew.

Other features include True-View & Photos, Easy-Routing Technology, and Nautical Paper Charts (vector charts overlaid on 3-D images). The other half of C-MAP 4-D is the MAX segment, which includes features of C-MAP MAX charts, like 3-D viewing and satellite photos. Jeppesen expects C-MAP 4-D to be available in 2010. Pricing information was not immediately available. Contact: Jeppesen Marine, (303) 799-9090. www.jeppesen.com/lightmarine
