I just bought and installed a new Axion 9" RealVision by Raymarine. It came with a chip for Lighthouse charts. Has anyone had experience with this system? I have used Navionics in the past but it seems they are going out of business an there has not been any recent updates. I am also looking at C Maps but can't find much information on them either. Any information or comments would be welcome.

Navionics going out of business? First I’ve heard of it. Personally I wouldn’t bother with the lighthouse charts. The navionic ones are far superior, especially with the relief shading.
