BlueChart g2 or BlueChart g2 Vision

Can someone explain what the Vision charts provide that the basic charts do not?

FYI- The area of interest is Belize/Ambergris Caye and boating will be limited to offshore day trips to fish and coastal / bay snorkeling.

Thanks

G2 Vision contains geo referenced photography and satellite imagery that can be overlaid on the underlying chart.

It is nice to have an aerial foto of the harbor or marina you are going into if you have never been there before. Nice but not essential. Ditto for the 'fish eye' view and other fun toys that are in there. Nice but not essential.
