Honeywell has unveiled JetMap III, the latest upgrade of its cabin moving map featuring worldwide 3-D perspective views of terrain, ocean topography, enhanced graphics and polar ice views.

JetMap III provides real-time flight data, passenger situational awareness information and data services for news, business, weather and sports. Passengers and crew can customize settings through use of a handheld remote.

“With JetMap III, we are not only improving the overall passenger experience, but with the addition of new Ovation C-Series cabin management and in-flight entertainment upgrades, such as touch-screen controls, Blu-ray video, high-definition monitors and iPod docks, we can refresh the cabin as an interim step before a more costly complete interior refurbishment is done,” said Honeywell aftermarket vice president Brian Sill.

Originally designed for Honeywell’s Ovation C-Series cabin management system, JetMap III can be adapted to non-Honeywell systems, according to the Phoenix-based company. Current JetMap II users can upgrade to JetMap III through replacement of the removable compact flash memory card.

The first JetMap III installation was completed in August in Honeywell’s own ­Falcon 900.
