Honeywell introduced JetMap III, a moving map upgrade providing real-time flight data and data services for passengers, the company announced Monday. The system provides worldwide 3D perspective views of terrain, ocean topography, enhanced graphics, and polar ice views.

“With JetMap III, we are not only improving the overall passenger experience, but with the addition of new Ovation C-Series cabin management and inflight entertainment upgrades such as touch-screen passenger control units (PCU), 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 Brian Sill, vice president, Aftermarket, Honeywell Aerospace.

Originally designed for the Honeywell Ovation C-Series Cabin Management System, JetMap III can be adapted into non-Honeywell systems. Current JetMap II users can upgrade to JetMap III through the simple replacement of the removable compact flash memory card. The first installation of JetMap III was completed this month on Honeywell’s Falcon 900.
