I am looking at purchasing a chip for my HDS 10 unit. looking for opinions.

Navionics platinum nc chart runs about $200. what are my other options?

more concerned with the fishing aspect with bottom contour, ect. vs the pretty chart pictures, but if it has both, great?

thanks!

I like the navionics platinum charts myself. Fish-n-chips seems to get good reviews as well but I have never used it.

Lowrance makes a HD east chip for under $100. Similar mapping to the Nautic Insight pre-loaded map but able to carry more zoom levels since it is only the easy coast.

I have debated this in the last couple of days myself. I have concluded that the preloaded charts offer enough relief detail that I will be happy. If I were to buy one it would be Insight HD 2012 East

Check out this link I found yesterday on this subject. After I saw this I was convinced the insight USA map will have enough details for me.
