Sorry Chris, I should have specifically said electronic charting software. I have a Raymarine e series plotter and am currently Using C-map.

Re: Bahamas using Navionics software

I'm currently in the Abacos, using Garmin Bluecharts (Explorer Chartbooks) in preference to either C-Map or Navionics. Explorer Charts (as delivered by Bluecharts) are just so much better, more accurate, and easier to use than the others. I have Navionics as my tertiary back-up.

Note that both Garmin and C-Map have bought liscences for Explorer Charts Data.
The other advantage is both of these echart systems also integrate actuve captain

Am sure some are, but Explorer Charts remain the gold standard for Bahamas and Navionics has a bad reputation in the Bahamas. Folks had had real issues in some of the cuts.
