Jeppesen Marine is offering a new, easy-to-follow handbook to help recreational boaters of all experience levels unlock the power and potential of the company’s C-Map PC-Planner navigation planning tool. What’s even better, this digest sized, 20-page color booklet is now included free with PC-Planner purchases — and it is also available to existing PC-Planner users at no charge.
The PC-Planner Handbook was developed by Jeppesen Marine’s industry leading technical support team, to help guide boaters through each step of installing and using this versatile at-home navigation planning software.
PC-Planner lets boaters perform a range of useful voyage planning functions right in the comfort of their home or office, using the same C-Map MAX or NT+ charts they’re familiar with on their boats. With PC-Planner, sailors, power cruisers and offshore anglers can plan all the navigational aspects of future trips, creating and editing waypoints and routes, checking routes for navigational safety, and more. Boaters can also load and view their charts on their computers, view aerial photos of inlets and harbors they plan to visit, scope out marina facilities and layouts, and even check tide and current predictions on their planned departure day and location. PC-Planner is also a great way to back up important waypoint and route data and perform an off-season chart plotter “tune-up” by deleting or renaming user marks saved over years of boating, fishing or diving.
The PC-Planner Handbook covers these and other aspects of using PC-Planner and answers the questions most frequently asked by boaters, in plain English. In addition to guiding users through the steps on their computer, this guide also offers specific tips for owners of selected GPS/chart plotter brands and models.
This new handbook is now being included with all new purchases of new PC-Planner software. In addition, current PC-Planner users can request can request a free copy by emailing to email@example.com or calling toll-free 800.424.2627. The entire handbook can also be easily downloaded by visiting the PC-Planner Section of the C-Map website at www.c-map.com.
