Page 2 – Furuno Introduces C-Map by Jeppesen Charts for NavNet 3D
In addition to creating the new “C-Map by Jeppesen” charts, MapMedia has been hard at work updating the free NOAA charts that are available for the US. MapMedia just released the “NOAA Edition 3” charts, which can be downloaded for free from Furuno USA’s web site. The Edition 3 update includes the following enhancements:
NOAA Vector Charts (S57): Added 18 new Vector Charts to the library and achieved a 300% to 400% increase in the chart detail.
Fishing Charts: U.S. Fishing Charts for the East Coast, West Coast and Gulf of Mexico.
Furuno is following through with their promise to continue enhancing NavNet 3D with the introduction of the new “C-Map by Jeppesen” MapMedia charts, which they will be previewing samples of at the upcoming Miami International Boat Show. Being able to display all of these different chart formats and letting the user choose what they want, is another first brought to you by NavNet 3D. This may be one small step for NavNet 3D, but it certainly places it one giant leap in front of all other chart plotters.
