has "Gold" series and a "Platinum" series. With the "Gold" series you get standard charts
, tides, currents, etc. The "Platinum" series adds in satellite/ panoramic imagery and 3-D bottom contouring.
You can aquire the "Gold" series for all of North and South America
2 flashcards at $189 each or $378 total.
To obtain the same coverage for the "Platinum" series you have to buy 20 different cards at $189 each or $3780 total.
Is it really an added $3400 just for satellite
imagery and knowing what the bottom looks like? Does anyone view this as a good deal or justified expense (and I admit- I don't know much about the other pricing schemes of other charting companies- it may turn out this is a great deal and a completely worthwhile investment to keep my boat off the rocks)?
