Default Navionics update question??

Jeff, you out there??

Got the Compact Flash card for my 6000i three weeks ago and today they came out with an updated version. They're willing to update my card for the price of postage and I was told there would be a 2 to 3 week turnover period.

My question is are the updates for my area (Long Island's south shore) significant enough to bother with? Or should I just keep the card I've got?

By my marina (Freeport creek) the chart goes into 1/8 scale but as I travel a little closer to the inlet (Jone's) it only zooms to 1/4 which doesn't thrill me. Will that change??

I was also told to wait till after the 15th of April for
the updated version. What's the reasoning?

JP,

On travel this week and a really tight schedule. Shoot me an email with your PH# and contact info and I will call you to fill you in.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Jeff

I also spoke with Jeff yesterday and while he did not have the answer I wanted to hear, it was good to know good things are coming soon, right? Hopefully Raymarine will give us an update soon.

Offshore,

All US XL and XL3 charts have been updated through July, 2003. Sorry about the wait. The Canada mess pushed us out a bit.
