It doesn't horrify me, but I would never think of going out without proper paper charts which don't need batteries and if they get fried by lightning then navigational issues will most likely be the least of my worries.
It is like navigating an airplane by GPS instead of sectionals - a heck of a lot easier to work with but not failsafe.
