C-MAP®, specialized in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, unveiled its new app for boaters, fishermen and water lovers this week, with a Premium version with new features, more advanced functionality and a new option shaded relief, previously available only in C-MAP REVEAL products for chartplotters.
Discover the new features of C-MAP
The C-MAP app is free to download and easy to use thanks to subscription-free access to the latest marine charts and a wide range of features. Some of them are: personal waypoints, routes and tracks, weather updates, points of interest, planning tools and many ways of customization. The C-MAP app can serve as a complete solution for nautical planning and navigation needs and is a great backup for anyone using a chartplotter.
The detailed C-MAP cartography is useful in very different situations: from shore excursions in solo kayaks to multi-day trips in large motor boats and all the intermediate options, including the exploration of the planet’s mirrors and waterways carried out with a handheld by boating enthusiasts.
“The latest version of our app offers sea maps of the highest quality that guarantee an excellent user experience, – said Max Cecchini, Executive Vice President of C-MAP – It comes with a new Premium annual subscription offer, dedicated to yachtsmen and customers who are looking for a truly Premium experience“.
In addition to all the features available for free, the Premium version offers unlimited download of offline maps, high resolution bathymetry, AIS and C-MAP Traffic options, 5 days of weather forecast along the route, GPS position and full navigation functionality. The Premium subscription also offers customized depth shading and, available in early July for the first time in the C-MAP app, global shaded relief.
Accuracy and detailed coverage
The C-MAP nautical charts have been carefully optimized for the app, highlighting the most important data and maintaining the usual accuracy thanks to a clear and uncluttered view. To ensure the most up-to-date and detailed coverage possible, in addition to the data from the official hydrographic offices, the maps have data from thousands of other sources, continuously updated and increased.
After planning the route from a computer, tablet or smartphone, it is possible to obtain data synchronization on all devices. In addition, during navigation you can save your favorite places to anchor or fish, and follow the same safe route every time thanks to the navigation track displayed on the customized map. You can also discover thousands of points of interest included in the maps, such as marinas, ports, beaches and petrol stations.
“The C-MAP app is already one of the most popular navigation and nautical planning apps on the market, as our customers like its ease of use and accuracy. Now, thanks to new features and a truly unmissable Premium offer, we have a very good chance of welcoming many other “happy boaters” to the C-MAP community “said Cecchini.
