Question 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?

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.
