Confused. I see US West Coast for $14.21, not $9.99 and not sure if Mexico is included in the Central America maps.

I see the same $14.21 USD. If you look at the photos in the app store there s one that shows area of coverage. It does appear Central America does include Mexico assuming my geography is sound when I'm sleepy. If one were to buy all maps available it is somewhere over $400.

Yes the maps appear to be (rounded to nearest whole dollar) $15, $29 and two at $57. The US appears all in the $15 range from my quick peek.

Re: Android App Called EarthNC (Nav Charts)

So, how does Navionics make their charts? Are they as up to date as the NOAA RNC downloads? Do they mostly use NOAA data and put a company logo on it? Do they do their own sounding and mapping?

I'm about to download Navionics for my new Droid phone, but just was wondering about their data quality, timeliness, etc.

I have only glanced at NutiCharts. . . . Does that allow you to use downloaded NOAA charts?
