I'm not sure what the problem is with the BlueCharts, but I have a Navionics card in my plotter and, while it works for much of the BVI, it would put me on the reef in Anegada; so any handheld using the same cartography data should be treated with caution. The paper charts and guide books that come with every charter boat are more than sufficient for the BVI and using GPS is a bit of overkill and a nice-to-have instead of must-have.
