FLIR Systems, the parent company of Raymarine, has announced a partnership that will allow support for C-MAP by Jeppesen cartography on some Raymarine multifunction displays.

Raymarine’s range of LightHouse II-based MFDs along with its line of Dragonfly Sonar/GPS models will support C-MAP and Jeppesen’s worldwide map library.

“We are excited Raymarine customers will soon be able to take advantage of C-MAP by Jeppesen’s complete library of navigational data and value-added products,” James Detar, Jeppesen’s portfolio management director, stated in a news release. “Raymarine’s navigation displays combined with C-MAP by Jeppesen charts will transform the way boaters navigate, with full-featured vector charts, dynamic raster charts, plus 3-D and satellite chart options.”

The cartography support will be part of a regular Raymarine software update and will be available as a free download with LightHouse Release 13 in early 2015.
