Honeywell announces JetMap III

Honeywell has unveiled JetMap III, the latest upgrade of its cabin information system featuring worldwide three-dimensional perspective views of terrain, ocean topography, enhanced graphics and polar ice views.

JetMap III, which the company is showing at its booth here (No. 6600), provides real-time flight data, passenger situational-awareness information and data services for news, business, weather and sports. With three-dimensional perspective maps, passengers and crew can customize settings through use of a hand-held 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 aftermarket vice president Brian Sill.

Originally designed for Honeywell’s Ovation C-Series cabin management system, JetMap III can be easily adapted to a non-Honeywell system, according to the Phoenix, Ariz.-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 on Honeywell’s own Falcon 900
