Well, there are 3 chart types really - Navionics
. Bluecharts and Cmap
. I haven't seen too many Cmap
devices, so that's pretty much out.
and Bluecharts, I personally liked Navionics
because of the larger coverage. However it looks as though Bluecharts do better in Bahamas - they use Explorer charts
instead of the usual government stuff (and I read a few people complaining about Navionics
being way off). In the end, though, I don't think any chart will ever be perfect, so that's just one part of the equasion.
I am leaning the Garmin
way now (since I realized Raymarine
makes you buy gps
sensor separately - I think this is just a cheap trick on their part).
