best payware site or addon for charts?

Recommended Posts

So I was really close to getting Simplates Ultra because I got tired of trying to track down charts for some of the smaller perhaps "less popular" countries I'm flying through on my world tour.  Someone mentioned to me they weren't worth it because some of the charts are really dated like 10+ years.  Just wondering what else out there is the best choice for charts then?  Navigraph seems expensive at 59 EUR a year and only has 37,000 charts vs. Simplates 70K+.  

 

Basically I want to be able to find charts that will work with a recent airac cycle since I grabbed the 1311 one from Navigraph for my addon aircraft and that has good coverage worldwide.  I see EFB does charts, and runs off the same FMS data from Navigraph so I'm guessing there would be coverage at least for the stars/sids/etc. that I'll find in my FMC's, but I'm not sure I really care about all the other stuff that EFB does which makes it really expensive just to get charts.

Personally, I prefer 37,000 current charts. SIDs and STARS change rather frequently and Navigraph will update.

EFB is worth every penny and there are numerous sites with free charts.

Yeah I use the free sites like charts.aero and aircharts.org a lot.  I guess I'm just trying to find something to fill in the gap for when I can't find something.  Maybe I'm just wasting my time though since once I finish my world tour most of the places I will fly IFR stuff will likely have easily accessible charts on those two sites.
