Best Chart program for Sea of Cortez+85

who makes the best plotter charts for the Sea of Cortez? Especially the area north of LaPaz. the Furuno chips are absolutely worthless and in some instances dangerous. We can use programs that are PC based. thank you.

Furuno doesn't make their own charts. They use Navionics and CMAP charts. We used the CMAP charts on our Furuno CP in this area and they were pretty decent. Doesn't mean that you won't occasionally be shown sailing over land, but thats true for all the older charts of Mexico that are away from large commercial ports.
