C-MAP bring more detail and versatility to the world of hand-held chartplotting.
C-MAP’s latest app is free to download, easy to use and delivers subscription-free access to the latest charts. With a range of features including personal waypoints, routes, weather updates, points of interest and planning tools, it can function as a stand-alone navigator in its own right or, for those using a chartplotter, an ideal backup. The detailed cartography is aimed at a broad range of users, from the inshore kayaker to the offshore powerboater.
C-MAP charts are carefully optimised for the app, highlighting the most important data and maintaining accuracy with a clean, uncluttered view. The charts are powered by data from official hydrographic offices, with data continuously updated and augmented from thousands of additional sources to ensure the latest and most detailed coverage. You can plan your route from your computer, tablet or smartphone, and the data will sync across all devices. Then, when you’re out on the water, you can save your favourite places to drop anchor or fish, and then follow the same safe passage every time with the breadcrumb trail that shows up on your personalised chart. There is also a function to check out points of interest included in the charts in detail, like marina facilities, harbours, beaches and fuel availability.
For those that want to take the portable plotter concept to the next level, there is the Premium Subscription Plan. Premium includes all the features available to free users, plus unlimited offline chart downloads, high-resolution bathymetry, AIS and C-MAP traffic, five-day weather along your route and real-time weather overlay, as well as full navigation functionality. This plan also unlocks Custom Depth Shading and –for the first time in the C-MAP app – Global Shaded Relief. Download for iOS on the Apple Store, and for Android on Google Play.
