New – ChartKit Region 3: Includes Free Companion CD Coverage: NY to Nantucket & Cape May, NJ

90 Updated Chart Pages, 63 New Aerial Photos and More…

Maptech (Amesbury, Mass) — The new edition of ChartKit Region 3 (14th edition) gives boaters and fishermen updated, feature-rich charts at a great price. The free Chartbook Companion CD comes with identical charts from the chart book plus GPS Real-Time Software. All of the navigation information has been fully scrutinized on each page of this new ChartKit—from subtle shifting shoals to drastic re-buoying of major harbors. Each waypoint and course has been plotted on the most current Notice to Mariner corrected charts.

Many boaters rely on chart plotters with small screens. With a ChartKit by your side it’s like having a 22" x 17" screen for a chart plotter—for only $130. Every page and every chart has been updated from the earlier editions. The 14th edition includes thousands of NOAA changes to the charts.  Maptech ChartKits are easy to use and contain full-color charts with hundreds of GPS waypoints and pre-plotted courses, and offshore and inshore charts in the most useful scales for the area.

Getting Started with Electronic Navigation is Easy: Maptech ChartKits come with a Chartbook Companion CD with the charts for the area and GPS Real-Time Software. If you take a laptop onboard connected to a handheld GPS receiver or sensor you can see your exact real-time position on the ChartKit chart on the computer screen. Both the chartbook and the software work hand-in-hand and offer an easy, almost fool-proof method for getting started in PC navigation.

For boaters who travel outside the ChartKit region, Maptech’s new U.S. Boating Charts with Tides & Currents ($99.95) is a perfect compliment with NOAA charts for the entire coastline. Electronic navigation is now easier and more cost effective.
