What chip for Cuba in RayMarine Axiom?

Hi,
I'm hoping someone can give me some guidance. I am planning on sailing to Cuba from Ft. Myers in May. I have an Ray Marine Axiom chartplotter that takes msd cards. I can get the following chips for Cuban charts:
c-map d063.43 for $339
nav+3xg for $199.99
NAv 908p-2 $399.99
Does anyone have any recommendations, insights, and/or experience with any of these? Would this replace my current chip or augment what I have i.e. FL and Bahamas (probably a wider area, but that is where I sail). Sorry to be so ignorant, but the equipment is new and there is a bit of a learning curve. Thanks in advance. Rich

Re: What chip for Cuba in RayMarine Axiom?

We used NV charts for the NW coast and could recommend. Not sure if the same data is used for any of the chips you mentioned. When we purchased the paper charts we got access to their online app version as well.

Where in Cuba are you cruising? On one end of the spectrum, if only doing FL to Havana you would need very little. It's deep water all the way to the gates. Strongly advise coming in thru Hemmingway with eyeballs in daylight and nothing strong out of the N.

Otherwise, I believe NV charts are the gold standard in those parts. They are broken down into 4 sections.. NW, NE, SE, SW.
