The Insight map has more detail to it. I have owned 3 different chart plotters and the first one only had the base map. I will not use another one without it having Navionics maps. Much better detail for navigation.
Im no pro on this device...yet! lol but im told the base map is far less detailed then the insight maps. Thats the map of the actual lake you are on...again i m just giving you what i know. i bought the hds 8 structure scan bundle with insight maps and im pleased. plus you can always buy the map chips for even better clarity. hope this helped

Base Map is a bare-bones basic map of US major lakes and waterways. Insight includes multiple levels of detail options, zoom for closer look at details, built-in expert fishing tips on US inland lakes, and either east or west coastal waters.
