Default Garmin HomePort vs Mapsource

I am scurrently using Mapsource. Is there enough of an improvement in HomePort to pay and switch over?

It's $30.00. Yes, it's probably worth it if your plotter has built in maps. You can copy them to an SD card and use them in HomePort.

I currently use Mapsource and was wondering what features HomePort has that Mapsource does not.

I'm sorry, it has been long enough that I don't really remember the differences. Having both, I use HomePort. It' only $30 so it's not a really a big investment to try it out.
