Which in fairness is like saying you'll never buy Sony 'cos they stopped making Betamax tapes, or Microsoft because they stopped supporting WinXP (best version of windoze ever imho) things move on. If you REALLY want to be stuck & beholden to a manufacturer WRG chart choices, buy Garmin
Most of the big names give you a choice of charts, Navionics, Cmap, Jeppeson etc. With Garmin you have the choice of err! Garmin. Garmin have also removed the ability to use crowd sourced bathymetric data from the latest versions of their firmware.
