I use Garmin I have no issues with their maps however when it comes to Buoys after dark I use my eyes when i am getting close .. they tend to Move a little from the map but i would suspect thats with every plotter

One of my garmins can only be updated via download onto a chip,,,,
Didn't go well,,,
I see where some of their machines have a (usb ?) interface for updates. May be more better!
