Default Problem with Navionics chart

I purchased Navionics Platinum+ for Central & South Florida for my Lowrance HDI 7 with the hope of getting more detailed physical detail and place names than is included in the default charts that came with the unit. I connected to Navionics website, downloaded an updater application as instructed, and updated map data according to instructions. Then I plugged card into my unit Lowrance and it was recognized. I clicked yes when prompted with the option to use the Navionics charts. Now when I pan the chart view to my local area (Homosassa and the coastline to the north and south) I am actually seeing LESS precise chart images than with the default Lowrance charts. Shoreline and islands are represented by very blocky rectangles. Iíve checked the docs and the unit itself a few times to see if there is a setting that Iím missing but Iím not seeing anything. Any suggestions on diagnosing this issue would be appreciated. Navionics doesn't seem to make it easy to get in touch with them for assistance and their support forums don't look promising for troubleshooting. I've tried their online chat and e-mail a few times without getting a response.
