Platinum Plus vs C Map reveal

 Anyone used both recently and can compare especially relief shading?

Most of the online utubes seem to be sponsored by one or other

Platinum all the way.

Have just gone with navionics platinum plus card in my nss evo 3 and it is on point! Have already caught fish off ground that contours alone have not reflected any ground but the relief shading has shown a car size lump which was 100% accurate and holding fish. Very happy with it! However the shading is not applied to absolutely everywhere although I imagine this will improve over time with surveying and regular chart updates, have covered all inshore areas and most offshore areas recys are likely to fish.

 Does anyone here have Cmap Reveal?
If so could you flick thru a pick of the Geraldon area as the map Explorer on their website only shows shaded relief outside 100 meters but it cant be like that as itd be completely useless to 99% of fishers.

 Also following this Rob.

Most of the features seem to be only beneficial around metro, not for us in the Midwest etc.

Keen to see if there is any benefit in using it around here.

 A mate has the Navionics Platinum + and Midwest has pretty good shaded relief maps.

But the Cmap website Explorer doesnt show anything inside the shelf, anywhere in Australia or anywhere else which cant be right

C-MAP Chart Explorer: Zoom in to see the rich detail in our data.

 C map reveal has PDW wa gov detailed charts loaded which are not included in Navionics platinum. So they are vastly superion in inshore areas,in deeper water they have australian navel charts with bathemetric detail but do not have the updates from individual fishermen who uploaded  thier info from the fishing app. I have both cards in 2 seperate chart plotters and prefer Cmap reveal as i dont do a lot of deep dropping.Platinum plus is more comprehensive in deeper water.Unfortuately nothing is perfect The best way is to log your sonar logs into your plotter if this have option on your indivual device.
