I recently mounted a Lowrance HDS-8 on my center console bay boat. I absolutely love the HDS-8 and it's many features, but was disappointed in the quality of the pre-loaded mapping. For instance, one of the spots where I fish has an approximately 100 ft concrete breakwall coming out perpendicular to the shoreline. The HDS-8 mapping doesn't show it at all. Bad news if you're unfamiliar with the local waters. From previous experience with Navionics mapping, I was pretty sure the Platinum+ would include important details like that and it didn't disappoint! Very detailed, great quality! Photo overlays great for helping find skinny water in the back bays.

I got two new Hummingbird GPS fish finders and neither the base map nor the Navionics SD cards show all the fishing areas. I am on Joe Wheeler lake in Alabama and a lot of the favorite fishing areas (like Decatur Flats) are shown simply as shallow water which is not true. Both Garmin and Lowrance show these areas submerged creeks and humps from shore to shore.

The card shows everything it says it does but it's not much better than what the Lowrance has built in. $200 is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much for this card and I hate the way they cut the sections so you have to buy two cards to cover the Florida coast.
It does what it says it will do and shows what it says it will show but it's just not worth the money.

bought a navionics sd platinum + for the new hds 10 i bought on using the card i find the images and compatibility not great have to take out the card then boot the chart plotter then re insert the card not what i expect after shelling out 200 on top of the new plotter .i also find the 3d side not worth having .
the satelite images are poor not even close to google earth .i am disapointed as once you open the pack you can not send it back they through you the bait then set the hook after you open the packaging
