Default Best seafloor contour for Simrad

What's the best service or chip to add to my Simrad EVO 2 for Seafloor Contours. I use my phone with Hiltons and it's ok. But, what I'm really looking for is something to overlay on my GPS screen. Something with color that depicts what the actual bottom is made of.

So you purchase this, and then download it right? I assume it's then transferred to a SD card...

You can order it different ways from Strikelines, but I opted for the sd card.

Depends on where you fish and depth. Look at both chips and the data available in the area you want to concentrate on.

but i run both chips in my Simrad.

Strikeline for shelf fishing and Cmor for the canyons.

I fish out of Grand Isle.

my favorite is the Insight charts that came loaded on my NSE, viewing in "shaded relief", for me it couldn't get any clearer.

The CMap Reveal takes that to a whole different level.

I own both the CMOR and CMAP. The CMOR has better coverage and resolution hands down. Definitely worth the money
