Maptech Offshore Lite Upgrade?

Has anyone had any experience upgrading from Maptech's Offshore Lite to full version Offshore Navigator?? I cannot connect to my autopilot unless I upgrade but the company is going through some ownership changes and selling off some units. Has anyone done this or have a solution?

Follow-up...........

Just a follow up for anyone wishing to ugrade to full blown Offhore Navigator from Offshore Lite, which comes with the Maptech chart kits. I spoke with Peter Martin (978 834-9950) and he conveyed to me that the upgrade to allow autopilot connection and anchor set option is only$99.95 which includes all 2009 NOAA charts and all 2009 tide tables. If you don't want or need the charts and tide tables, the price is only $49.95 HE is great to work with and I feel this is a great price to get the full blown navigation package if you currently are using Offshore Lite. Thank you again to JiffyLube, you need a payback, man!! I hope this helps someone else.
