The Navionics chip for the Bahamas is not the best with quite a few geo- referencing errors. I corresponded with Navionics on this and they claimed the latest version was improved but would not tell me if the specific errors I pointed out had been corrected. I only got mine a few years ago and am not about to spring all those bucks without assurance that the new chip is better than the old. The best electronic charts for the Bahamas are the NEW (2006) C-maps. They are Explorer charts, the best you can get fo the Bahamas. I like Navionics but their Bahamas chip sucks.
