New Release Includes 1-Foot Contours on 15,000+ U.S. Lakes and 9,400 Canadian Lakes


PARTE ALTA SOLOLOGO C-MAP2C-MAP®, a leader in digital marine cartography and cloud-based mapping, announced today the next generation of C-MAP Contour+ charts preloaded in HDS LIVE fishfinder/chartplotters. The new embedded charts bring even more value to the HDS LIVE lineup with a significant increase in lakes featuring 1-foot contours – 15,000+ U.S. lakes and 9,400 Canadian lakes – in addition to other refinements, including reprocessed depth contours and updated Custom Depth Shading.


Covering inland and near-shore coastal areas of the continental U.S., plus Hawaii, Bermuda and Canada, C-MAP Contour+ charts include Custom Depth Shading on all lakes, Easy Routing (U.S. coast/Inland only), high-resolution bathymetric 1-foot contours on 15,000+ U.S. lakes/9,400 Canadian lakes, fishing Points of Interest (POIs) and standard navigation data – including Tides and Currents for coastal areas.


Previously launched in June 2020 as a significantly enhanced, preloaded mapping solution for new HDS LIVE displays, C-MAP Contour+ – now with even more charting data and a larger file size – will not be available via a downloadable software upgrade. HDS LIVE displays are scheduled to be preloaded with the newer Contour+ chart at the factory starting around March 1, 2021. Current registered HDS LIVE customers can purchase the Contour+ map card for a nominal $35 fee, starting February 1 and continuing through April 1, 2021 at
