The features will only be available on the new MAX charts, the chartplotter used will have to be of a suitable type either having had a firmware upgrade or one of the new range of kit designed to use these charts. It has been suggested there is a minimum resolution at which the new photos or enhanced graphics become usable so only certain current models of plotter will be up to the job. I think Furuno and Simrad both have new models soon.

I am enquiring about the deals with the 6600, it seems likely there will be some kind of bundle. The cost of the existing charts should also be reduced.

The Navimo/Plastimo people will have a card to be inserted into the 6600 as an update, I understand this will be available on a loan basis and will enable the current 6600 to use most if not all the new features.

Prices for c-map max are on my website http://www.jgtech.com/charts.htm also note the Cmap max will not work on Navman 5500 and 5600. I don't really think this will matter because these screens are too small to display all the advantages of MAX. I have the Standard Horizon range which are made by c-map these will run MAX but will need an update available FOC soon. Again would you really want to run MAX on these small screens with 320 x 240 or less, resolution ? Leave MAX for the 640x480 and 800x600 screens. All the new area coverages for the Small Wide and Mega Wide are much better value to be competitive with Navionics Gold. Regards JG

For limited time buy a Super wide chart for 149 inc vat and delivey. When the MAX come out in mid Feb keep your receipt and send it off to C-map for a full credit on a MAX chart. Regards JG
