Default Lowrance Nautitec or Navionics Silver

Does anyone have any experience with either of these two chips. How detailed are the charts. Does each show depths, contours, nav aids or is one better than the other.

It's actually called Lowrance Nautic Path software. Supposed to cover the entire US coast. Would like to know how much detail is provided.

I have the Nautic path software on the hard drive. I would say it is comperable to the NOAA charts, it quilts well and rapidly. There are points of interest--and I would say it is equal too or slightly better than the Navionics Silver. The Navionics Gold, is slightly better. I would place the C map Max better, but I have not used the Platinum Navionics. Any of these is more than adequate to navigate anywhere in the US.

What makes one better than the other. My main concern are the nav aids. I dont care about the 3D shots or arial views some of the softwares provide. If the nav aids are more than adequate on the Nautic Path I would like to go with the Lowrance 25C since the fishfinder works well.

Great questions -and I'm in the same boat. Just purchased and installed the model 111 and deciding on best chip choice.

bgreene,

Did the unit come with the Nauti Path software installed. If so, how is the detail on the chart. Some of the problems I have heard of with the software are the omission of Rocks in certain areas that protrude above the water line at low tide.
