Navionics Cartography

I run a Powerboat School out of Falmouth in Cornwall UK. My main Plotter is a Lowrance LMS240 Mono with Navionics Classic cartography, which I find to be very accurate, I also have a Garmin 76MapS with BlueChart Cartography instaled, which again is very good. I personaly prefer the Navionics.

We had a Garmin188c which was great, we got caught out in fog by the forts (Portsmouth) and the garmin guided us though the dolphin and back to eastney. We now have a raymarine E80 with platuim chart, havant used it much but if i am honest dose not seam as good as the garmin. mybe we are not used to it yet

I've got a Garmin 188C and data card for the east coast of england - Dove to Scarborough. Had no issues at all with the qualify of the data, the unit redraws extremely quickly and the only issue I've got is that after a few jaunts out in the cold during the last winter, the screen has some moisture / condensation behind it, and this makes it a bit hard to read in bright sunlight. But the cartography is fit for purpose and as accurate as jan 06.

The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice that which we are for what we could become. (& then get the RIB out !)
