Raymarine and CMOR help Anglers, Divers Discover More
The best diving and bottom-fishing spots are the ones that don’t show up on paper or digital charts and aren’t marked on commercially available fishing maps. They’re the forgotten wrecks, the isolated reefs, the ledges hidden between the contour lines — the kinds of places that take hundreds of hours on the water and countless dollars in fuel to find.
CMOR Mapping’s chartplotter-compatible bathymetry clearly reveals those spots. With resolution as high as one meter (each pixel represents a single square meter of bottom) and coverage of the entire bottom, anglers, divers and other treasure seekers can see every bump in remarkable detail. And just as important, they’ll see the areas of featureless underwater desert – areas where they don’t need to spend time looking – just as clearly.
CMOR high-resolution seafloor mapping is compatible with any Raymarine chartplotter running the LightHouse operating system, but the CMOR advantage is compounded when combined with the processing power and clarity of Raymarine’s Axiom multifunction displays.
“We’re pleased to offer compatibility with nearly all Raymarine chartplotter and MFD models,” says CMOR Mapping owner, Erik Anderson, “but Axiom’s technology definitely elevates the user experience. Our highly detailed charts are data intensive, and Axiom’s high-performance chart-rendering engine and high-resolution display combine to showcase the benefits of our products beautifully.”
Raymarine Americas Marketing Manager, Jim McGowan, recently invited CMOR Mapping’s Nick Gaffney onto the weekly Raymarine Live streaming event for an in-depth discussion of their detailed 3D maps for fishing and diving. This informative session covers the latest CMOR technologies and products, while detailing advanced CMOR performance and functionality on Raymarine Axiom displays.
CMOR Mapping uses your precise GPS location, unlocking the ability to view your vessel icon over the data, guaranteeing accuracy within centimeters of the bottom features on the chart. All other vector data — tides, nav aids, routes, waypoints, etc. —remains available on your plotter and can be viewed as an overlay if desired. Put simply, a CMOR card adds another layer of extremely valuable data to what you already see on your Raymarine chartplotter.
Installation of CMOR Mapping takes under 20 seconds on Axiom. Simply insert the Micro SD card (SD adapter included), select Chart from the LightHouse home screen, then Menu, Settings, and select the CMOR Mapping Chart option from the cartography tab. Zoom in on the desired coverage area to begin viewing CMOR’s incredibly detailed bathymetry data.
