The DISCOVER and REVEAL charts include new features like Custom Depth Shading, Shaded Relief for inland waters, subscription-free Easy Routing and more. The charts replace Insight PRO, Lake Insight HD, Precision Contour HD, MAX-N and MAX-N+ charts in the C-MAP line-up, greatly simplifying its chart portfolio.

C-MAP DISCOVER – MAKE THE MOST OF TIME ON THE WATER
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.

C-MAP REVEAL also offers Dynamic Raster Charts, bringing a traditional paper chart look and feel; and Aerial Photography, providing an additional level of detail with thousands of photos of marinas, harbors, inlets and other notable navigational features. REVEAL’s Satellite Overlay delivers real-world reference and enhances situational awareness for coastal navigation. C-MAP REVEAL charts are available on REVEAL Lake cards – featuring Shaded Relief, plus 1-foot contours on more than 15,000 U.S. lakes and over 9,400 lakes in Canada – as well as REVEAL Coastal cards, which include the popular seafloor shaded relief views of the bottom.

“With REVEAL, boaters get extra features, including Shaded Relief, everywhere, coastal and inland,” said Max Cecchini, executive vice president, C-MAP. “Previously, that view was only available in our local products, in very select coastal areas. It was our customers who called this ‘game-changing,’ and we’re thrilled to be changing the game for all boaters by making this view available globally.”
