Lake Powell Navigation Map Recommendations?

Heading out for our 2nd time on a houseboat for a week out of Wahweap Marina. Last year, we relied on the Stan Jones map given to us by friends. It was helpful, but I made a note to myself that a more detailed map would be better. Any current (July 2017) recommendations for navigation maps...and opinions on physical maps vs. downloadable digital versions? Thanks!

Jeff, lots of advice can be given. But you should be more specific. Also, better to start your own thread as the information you seek may not apply to the OP.

Original poster here...we just returned. (SUCH a great week!) We used a combination of 3 map sources and had all the information we needed.

1- The detailed maps shared by JFRCalifornia via email (Thank you again for scanning and sharing these treasures!)

2- The less detailed but easy to see at a glance where you're going Stan Jones map (sold at the marina.)

3- The free app "Boating HD" by Navionics. (I'm sure there are other apps but I tried three and liked this the best. I downloaded the map for the area we were going to be in in advance so the app could be used without any data connection. Purely GPS...no other information, but it helped us to pinpoint exactly where we were and which direction we were headed on the other two maps without guessing!)
