Default Navionics help needed.

I just bought a Lowrance 3500c and the 2006 Navionics HotMaps Premium North chip. I'm pretty new to chart plotters so I may have something set wrong but I'm not sure. If I look up on Lake Superior Duluth Harbor it shows the red/green channel markers as they should be. The inland lakes show all the buoys as purple (other than the hazard buoys which I believe are shown as red). When I put the curser on a buoy, the info comes up to tell you whether it's a point buoy or a channel marker but you would think it would display them accordingly. With all the other info these chips contain, I would think color designated Nav aids would take some priority. I used a friends GPS with a Lakemaster chip last summer which showed the buoys each with a color designated to the type of buoy it was. Am I missing something?
