cmap New Series

New Inland and Coastal Maps Benefit Boaters and Anglers, Combining Leading C-MAP Cartography With Exclusive Content and Chart Data from GoFree.

Global cartography leader C-MAP® is set to introduce a new series of map products for boaters. The new U.S. mapping products — C-MAP Insight Pro and C-MAP Lake Insight HD — combine the trusted chart detail, unique content and popular graphical presentation of C-MAP cartography with exclusive chart data from GoFree® Lake Insight charts. Boaters and anglers using these charts will also benefit from millions of acres of customized data from the Insight Genesis® Social Map, providing the most up-to-date views of underwater contours and lake bed features gathered and shared by actual boaters on the water.

C-MAP Insight Pro gives both coastal and freshwater anglers powerful features designed to enhance their time on the water. These include high-definition 1- to 3-foot depth contours for thousands of lakes and bodies of water — many enhanced with shaded depth contours that make it easy to pinpoint productive areas. Additional angler-specific features include a custom color palette for user-defined depth ranges, state fish and wildlife regulations/fishing records and a wealth of Fishing Hot Spots® POIs and lake-specific fishing tips and techniques. Exclusive C-MAP High Resolution Bathy (HRB) chart detail is a powerful ally for coastal anglers. These charts also provide boaters with many of the advanced navigation features C-MAP is known for, including an extensive Harbor Charts and Ports Info database, Easy Routing™ for faster, safer navigation and Active Captain® crowd-sourced POIs. New C-MAP Insight Pro charts deliver all this data and content on a single SD card covering the contiguous United States.

C-MAP Lake Insight HD offers all the Lake-related features and content of C-MAP Insight Pro, along with additional popular C-MAP features including Satellite Image Overlay and Aerial Imagery for enhanced situational awareness and a “bird’s eye” Perspective View chart presentation. 

These new charting packages will be offered as both an option and embedded cartography for Lowrance®, Simrad® and B&G® displays starting in 2017 and, as a result of the further development of the Insight offering to a broader audience of boaters and fishermen, Raymarine and Furuno customers will be able to access Insight products when made available in upcoming C-MAP 4D releases. 

“Our goal has always been to offer the best chart value to our customers,” said EgilAarstad, CEO, C-MAP. “We are leveraging the equity of Navico Insight data and by combining it with our proven chart detail, popular navigation features and graphic presentation, we are changing the game for coastal and freshwater anglers. We are very excited about having these products available on Navico platforms as well as making them available to a broader OEM market and boating audience in early 2017.”
