NAVICO LAUNCHES C-MAP EMBARK, THE LATEST IN NAUTICAL NAVIGATION TECHNOLOGY

Navico, the world’s largest manufacturer of marine electronics, today announced the launch of C-MAP Embark, a nautical navigation app designed to refresh the planning, cruising and fishing experience with a clear aim in mind — to make it simpler.

C-MAP Embark is powered by map data from official hydrographic offices. This data is continuously updated and augmented from thousands of data sources to help complete gaps in coastal and inland water bodies, providing C-MAP Embark users with exceptional clarity where it matters most. Updated monthly, the maps work across multiple platforms to ensure users always have the most current charts on smartphone, tablet or PC. The charts show all the information needed to navigate safely, while displaying a clean and clear, user-friendly view. The maps are also designed to be “smart”— adjusting colour and contrast automatically depending on the light, so boaters will always be able to read them clearly. For fishing enthusiasts, C-MAP Embark features a contour mode, which offers a high-resolution bathymetry view, helping users target the best fishing spots. “With the launch of C-MAP Embark, we have vastly improved the planning and navigation experience of any cruising, sailing or fishing trip,” said Sean Fernback, CTO, Navico. “By providing users with the right information before, during and after their time on the water, they can be confident in the choices they make and enjoy a more stress-free journey, wherever they decide to go.”

C-MAP Embark maps are intelligently designed to show users the most important information at any given time, so they can discover new places safely and confidently — just like a local. The app will offer helpful tips and provide information about local marinas, harbours, beaches, shops and much more. With C-MAP Embark, users can also help other boaters nearby and share exciting new places and routes with friends — simply create a place or a route and press share; it’s that simple. Users travelling to an area without internet or cellular data coverage can upgrade to Premium and download off-line maps and weather to stay safe wherever the on-water journey leads. Planning and tracking can also be synchronised as soon as internet or cellular data is accessed. C-MAP Embark is now offering users a free two-week trial – available to download today from Google Play and the App Store.

About Jarrod Day

As a young boy, fishing from the Portsea and Sorrento piers along the Mornington Peninsula coastline was a regular occurrence during the school holidays. My love for fishing grew and many years later now find it much more than a hobby, but a lifestyle. My website has been developed with fishing and photography in mind. Take a look around, I hope you enjoy it. www.jarrodday.com/

About Chris Adams

My name is Chris Adams, I am based on the Sunshine Coast and have been fishing my entire life, from simple hand lines and a prawn on a hook off jetties as a kid to nothing but artificials from the age of 10. I cut my teeth on bass in the local creeks and from there, progressed from Lures to Flyfishing. Having been Flyfishing exclusively for the past 12 years, I have been to many places all over Australia and the world all thanks to my love of sight fishing. I have previously been the president of the Saltwater Flyfishing Association and a certified casting instructor with the Federation of Flyfishers (FFF), I am still a practising casting instructor and most recently a low volume commercial fly tier. These days I have evolved into a more all rounder and will mix it up between conventional and Flyfishing whenever I feel as though one has more of an advantage to the other. My favourite type of fishing is any type of sight fishing, from bream on the flats in landlocked lakes, to the pelagics cruising the flats inside Fraser Island, saratoga both wild and impounded to nones and GTs on the flats of Kiritimati. Sight fishing is my preferred style is of hunting but my heart will always be with Aussie bass.
