Egersund, Norway – C-MAP®, a leader in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, announced today the launch of new high-detail C-MAP DISCOVER and C-MAP REVEAL charts for Lowrance®, Simrad® and B&G® chartplotters.

The DISCOVER and REVEAL charts include new features like Custom Depth Shading, Shaded Relief for inland waters, subscription-free Easy Routing and more.

Whether cruising, fishing or sailing, the entry-level C-MAP DISCOVER charts have all the core features needed to make the most of time spent on the water and include coverage for the U.S. and Canada on one card.

The Tides & Currents feature provides projections of water level and direction of tides to help plan a day out cruising, fishing or sailing. Subscription-free Easy Routing™ automatically plots the shortest, safest route based on chart data and personalized vessel information.
