Default C-Map joins with Jeppesen Marine

We are pleased to announce that C-Map, the world’s leading provider of digital maritime cartography, data services and navigational information, is now part of Jeppesen, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company. The recently completed acquisition brings nearly 100 years of combined and proven experience and leadership to the marine market.

C-Map is being merged into Jeppesen’s marine business unit. Jeppesen is widely recognized as the world’s leading provider of aviation navigation information and operational solutions. We play a key role in the aviation industry to ensure the accurate and timely delivery of sovereign aviation content to millions of pilots worldwide, and now the company looks to leverage its pioneering roots and deep capabilities to expand into markets that are similar and complementary to our core competencies.

C-Map is an excellent fit with the existing Jeppesen Marine business, and the two operations will complement each other very well. The acquisition provides exciting opportunities for growth and accelerates the business plans of both organizations. We will bring to market exciting new technologies and innovations that are proven through decades of aviation experience, and our deep global knowledge base means we can bring to you the services you need. It also means that Jeppesen Marine now has a vastly expanded global base of operations in over 47 locations around the globe.

Below are some FAQs to provide additional answers on a variety of related topics. The contact information that you have used in the past for C-Map is still valid, or you may use the contact information provided on this letter if you have any questions and/or concerns. We look forward to sharing more exciting news with you as it develops throughout 2007. Please visit www.jeppesen.com if you would like more background information on our company.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will the C-Map name/brand continue in the market place?
Yes for now. C-Map is an outstanding brand backed by tremendous products and strong reputation. C-Map is now part of Jeppesen Marine’s family of product brands, as is Nobeltec. Eventually everything will be migrated to our master-brand ‘Jeppesen Marine,’ but this will be an evolutionary process.

Will C-Map cartography be available in Nobeltec navigation software?
Yes, we anticipate this process to be completed within the first year. We will have a method to switch existing customers’ Passport data into C-Map charts. Look for more announcements to be forthcoming.

What will happen with the Nobeltec Passport product?
As C-Map cartography becomes available in our applications, we’ll have more information on the Passport brand and products. Of course, we will provide an upgrade path for existing Nobeltec users.

Who do I call for product support?
Until further notice, the existing phone numbers will continue to accept service calls.
800.424.2627 X770

Will C-Map continue to offer its Club C-Map program? Will I still receive my updates that I am entitled to with my subscription?
Yes, Club C-Map will continue and all services that you are expecting as part of Club C-Map will be delivered as planned. Please, don't hesitate to call Amy or Carol at the Club desk with any questions or concerns.

Marlintini - if you are with Jeppesen could you guys please re-do the c-map website? It really is the most non-intuitive mfr site in the biz. Hard to find stuff, very hard to tell what chips cover what (in detail), history of chips and what they cover very confusing, etc. Great product, however. I've got 3 different systems that use it.
