Navionics are pretty good and very similar in look and feel to traditional charts. Be aware that Simrad, B&G and Lowrance are basically all the same kit so you have a wider choice than you maybe thought?
IIRC the main difference is target market and price:
B&G = £££ / Well heeled WAFIs
Simrad = ££ / Posh powerboaters/cheapskate WAFIs
Lowrance = £ / Ribbers/fisherfolk/Americans
