Default Quick question

I have a quick question, can an HDS-5 base map be upgraded to insight mapping? The factory is replacing my 522 with an HDS-5 Basemap.
Old fishermen never die, their rods just go limp.

If I understand this correctly, it can...but may have to be ordered the way you want it to begin with??

Background Map - Expanded U.S. BaseMap or Lake Insight™ or Nautic Insight™ (Americas) or Worldwide background map (non-Americas)

For the Americas, you get a choice of incredible, built-in Lowrance Insight cartography with your model selection: Lake Insight™ for U.S. inland and Great Lakes; and Nautic Insight™ coverage for detailed U.S. coastal waters coverage.

The basemap model can not be updated to Insight. You have to purchase it in the unit.

I am not convinced that the Insight mapped HDS's are worth the additional cost. I would be using my Navionics mapping card anyway. Having said that, I could be convinced otherwise. As of now, and if I decide to go Stucture Scan vs. HB; I would go base map.
