This is a great place for someone to ask questions/opinions for sources.
Moving on to the question of where to buy charts, etc... Here in San Diego, CA there is a great book and chart store that also has an online presence. The owner, Ann, is very knowledgeable and helpful to cruisers who buy charts and navigation software from their store. I've watched her help cruisers get their software loaded on their laptops right in the store. Great resource, IMHO. You can get the contact info at the store link here
