Raymarine chartplotter owners take note: If your C-MAP C-card is more than one year old, it's time to update. Year-to-year changes can lead to disaster if they are ignored. For example, 5,319 chart corrections were made to the Gulf of Mexico C-card (NAC-420) in one year alone! Chart changes run the gamut, and can range from a simple buoy or light changes to complicated channel and restricted security area changes.
C-MAP wants every customer to navigate safely and accurately with the most up-to-date charts possible, and has formed Club C-MAP to make updating easy and inexpensive. Members receive one free C-card update every spring or fall. Club members enjoy other special benefits such as various trade programs, C-card rentals, the Port Partner Program (discounts from 10 to 25 percent on fuel, marine repairs, electronics installations, merchandise and transient slip rentals) and other C-MAP product discounts. Even better, Sea Ray customers enjoy a discounted membership price of only $59!
Check to see if your card needs updating by visiting the Notice to Mariner section at www.c-map.com. To join Club C-MAP, contact C-MAP at (800) 424.2627 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
