Charts for Pacific Mexico

Last year we bought the BSB4 charts for Mexico, we also have the CM93 ones, to use with OpenCPN, and have been very disappointed in the coverage of "cruiser" areas. There is, understandably, great coverage of commercial ports, but these are not the areas we like to hang out in.

Are there any charts out there that would work better for us? I'd prefer to stick with my WinPC as I have it all connected together via a mux., but if I have to I'll consider getting a tablet. Also, I would consider getting Fugawi as they seem to have alternatives, but does anyone know what quality these charts are?

Appreciate any help.

Re: Charts for Pacific Mexico

Paper charts got me back and forth to Mexico for nearly 40 years. It was nice to see the electronic charts agreeing with my dead reckoning when they came into vogue but that point has been thrashed to death on another thread. Cheers, Capt Phil
