Simrad Insight Chart Coverage and Detail ?

Again, I want to start by thanking everyone for helping with my AIS related question! Super helpful!

Next thing I was thinking about is charts. I'm wondering what if any experiences anyone's had with the built-in charts on the Simrad NSE. I was in Newport the other day on business and talked to a guy who has the system on his Protector. He said the high def charts that come preloaded on the NSE are really detailed. My family and I cruise around Newport a lot in the summer, but I'm hoping to explore some new places this coming season. The NSE accepts Navionics platinum cartography, so I was thinking I would buy the charts I need once I finishing planning our next adventure, but now I'm wondering if Insight charts that Simrad makes will be sufficient. I realize this is probably totally dependent on the area, I'm just wondering if anyone else has has any experience with them.

I'm also planning on taking my laptop and iPad along, so I will have backup charts in other formats.

Appreciate your thoughts.
