C-Map vs Navionics
We are in the midst of upgrading from a small Lowrance GPS/plotter etc system to a Furuno NavNet2 system, and liked the features marketed by C-Map so went that route. Today we fired up one of the display units with the C-Map charts, and I was very disappointed in the quality of the charts vs the Navionics we had on the Lowrance.
For example, we like to explore Mitlenatch Island in the Georgia Straits, and with the C-Map chart I would need the paper chart for detail whereas with the Navionics chart there was no need. (To be clear, I always have paper close by however.)*
Am I expecting too much from the C-Map charts? I expect to see the same detail that I see on the paper charts but what I see is a very amateurish stick drawing version.The Navionics does not provide *paper chart detail either but it is much better.
