Re: Anyone join Club Jeppesen?
Very good experience with the company, they are easy to deal with.
Paying $89 a year for chart updates burns me up. But if your plotter uses CMap cards and you need the updates, that's the cheapest way out.
I can't answer to how often the Great Lakes charts are updated, but in blue water things really do change enough that it's worth it to update at least annually.

Anyone join Club Jeppesen?
I'm looking at joining Club Jeppesen. $89.00 a year for free chart updates. The question is whether it's actuall worth it... Since I use only the Lake Ontario bathymetric chart chip in my SH 390i plotter, I question how often it's updated (by anyone). It may well be a waste of money.
Has anyone on the Great Lakes tried the Club updates? If so, good or bad experiences? Worth the money?
