Question Feeedback Please: Navionics NAV+NI US & Canada

I am considering purchasing the Navionics NAV+NI US & Canada chip (see attached photo) for my 2nd Helix unit.

My #1 unit, Helix 10 G2N SI, will use a combination of 3 chips:
a Lakemaster MN, a Lakemaster Woods & Rainy chip and a Navionics Canada chip.

My #2 unit a Helix 7 GPS G2N requires a Micro SD chip.
Thus I am thinking I could get the Navionics NAV+NI US & Canada chip.
I could then delete and download the maps I would like as necessary (I understand some units struggle with the file size).

I would like to hear feedback on the Navionics+ US & Canada chip as well as Navionics map downloading/updating feature.

Thanks In Advance!

It works good for me. Just gotta get everything you want first year. I have Iowa,Nebraska, the dakotas, part of Minnesota, and half of Lake Erie and Detroit river on mine. Room to add some yet, but not sure where else I would go.

Thumbs up Thanks!

Thanks for your replies and information.
I have ordered the Navionics+.
An adventure for me as I have been a
Lakemaster user for many years.

I just picked up the Nav+ chip from their site, only used it once since installing it and wow its very nice. I installed all 49 states/ Canada navigation and 500 mile square around me and it didn't even hit 16g on the card. Ive used Nav+ on my iPhone for the last two years and fig that it worked that well for that long the 200$ chip might be worth it.

FirefishTracker that definitely sounds encouraging.
I will check performance (zooming in and out, etc.)
with the chip as provided.
If the update response is slow I believe I will delete
and reload MN, WI, ND,SD and Ontario.
Then check the performance.

Thanks for your feedback!
