NOAA ENC charts

Can someone help me, I have just purchased Fugawi Marine ENC for my laptop/GPS as a back up. Fugawi supports the free NOAA charts so what is the difference between the NOAA ENC charts which are free and the ENC maps that each distributor charges a fee for. For example Fugawi offers Navionics Gold ENC maps for the area I want (Bahamas/Keys) for $200. There must be some additional features over the NOAA ENC charts. Can someone answer this as I dont want to spend the $200 if I dont have to.

Thanks in advance
