I have just bought my first chartplotter and am now looking at getting c-map for this unit.Theres seems to be a few options available.Any info on which is the most useful for inshore fishing would be a great help.
I believe it is a discontinued plotter from last year or the year before.
Nothing wrong with it as a plotter, just it has been superseded.
C-Map cards cover different locations and different stretches of water. They have local or wide coverage and the price adjusts accordingly.
You will need a different card if you decided to go outside your coverage area.
Your plotter takes C-Map NT+ cards
The one for that stretch of coastline in "Local" mode is:
M-EW-C038 - DOVER STRAIT TO GREAT YARMOUTH
Hope that helps
PS: Here's some info on your plotter.

Here is the link to the C-Map site.The chart which may be better for you is M-EW-C205.14 Eastern English Channel It is the wide version and is better value as it covers more area should you wish to take the boat some where else.As Tom say's though the local map would be fine.This is the lick to C-Map http://www.c-map.co.uk/
