This new partnership allows users of Coastal Navigator to benefit from the worldwide coverage and features of Jeppesen’s popular C-MAP MAX cartography. C-MAP MAX charts provide navigators with excellent coverage (available in expansive Wide and MegaWide regions) with a range of innovative features like exclusive C-Marina port plans and diagrams, aerial photos of harbors and inlets, land elevation information and tides/tidal stream data. Coastal Explorer users also have access to Jeppesen’s bathymetric and specialized sportfishing charts, designed to provide serious anglers with the chart detail and information they need for success.
“Coastal Explorer set a benchmark for PC navigation when it was introduced, and the company continues to make it better,” said Francesco Altamura, Jeppesen senior manager, Portfolio Management. “This commitment is why Coastal Explorer continues to gain accolades and loyal customers worldwide. We’re pleased to be working with Rose Point and pleased to offer our cartography to Coastal Explorer users worldwide.”
The C-MAP MAX worldwide chart catalog is now included in the Coastal Explorer Chart Portfolio, with the ability to purchase the charts directly from the software. The charts are delivered via the Internet; this means that charts are immediately available to customers wherever they might be provided they have Internet access. Boaters who already have Coastal Explorer can download the required free software update and C-MAP Support Add-On using the Download Page of Rose Point’s Coastal Explorer website (www.coastalexplorer.net).
“We are constantly striving to enhance Coastal Explorer and improve the electronic navigation experience,” said Rose Point Navigation Systems director of sales and marketing Jeff Hummel. “Bringing Jeppesen’s worldwide cartography into the fold is a key step in this continuing evolution. These new chart options are great news for boaters — particularly those who plan to navigate outside U.S. waters,” Hummel added.
