Default Navionics?

Help me understand navioncs chips. I live in SWFL and fish Fort Myers and Charlotte Harbor areas. What is the best chart for the areas? Is it a one time purchase fee or do i need to by updates?

Do you fish inshore or offshore? If you do inshore I would recommend looking at the FMT chip if you can run it on your machine. On the navionics platinum plus chip it comes with one year of updates free.

You'd want to get the Navionics+ Regions card for the South. Included in the purchase price is one year worth of updates and then you can continue to receive updates for $99 per year going forward. The cool thing about it is that every time you go out you can record your sonar charts, upload them and further refine the contour lines of the area you normally fish.
