What are the best ICW maps to have and where do I get them?

Without knowing if you are looking for paper or electronic it is a bit hard to tell you exactly but we've been using electronic charts on OpenCPN (opencpn.org) running on a spare Macbook.

Very happy with the results.

Mostly want to know what ppl are using for traveling I imagine a laptop or ipad is used most of the time. A good paper map would be good to have though.

We've found, so far, that the moving map navigation programs available for iPad are just great- accurate, capable, and easy to read. We have paper charts aboard for our corner of the swamp, but found the electronic ones every bit as useful---and free!
