Which charts

I'm buying new MFD and have to decide on charts to circumnavigate Australia.
Navionics versus C map essentials.
I have been advised that C map is better.
I would appreciate your opinion.

Thanks for your input, my Raymarine man agrees. Quickest decision I've made in a long time.

Re: Which charts

If you go with C-Map, you can put Navionics on a smartphone/tablet at a reasonable price as a backup. Then you have both available.
