Default Need Map Advice for Simrad NSS12 EVO2

With Simrad nss12 evo2 supporting many map formats, can anyone recommend the 'best' maps for west coast of florida? The factory maps of the nss12 evo2 arent that impressive... i hate upsells.

My favorite is Navionics Platinum Plus, but I'm far away from your coasts.

Navionics give the possibility to check before buying.Go to the link above, select XL3 and then 906P+ in the left window. Then you can zoom, pan and check whatever you want. There is a button at the low left of the chart window to enable and disable SonarCharts (fishing mode). You need to be zoomed in to a certain level or more for SonarCharts to work.

I don't know if I haven't figured out how to enable it, but I don't get SonarCharts. I likely have the same chip of Florida.

Navionic Platinum Plus, does this show the area that you need charting for? It has great mapping with enhanced bathymetrics as well as overlay.
