That sounds like the way to go. Since this is a relatively new feature I had been pushing it as soon as I armed, out of fear I would forget! Not sure how, with it right in front of you. Latest software lets you turn it on or off.
Charts will come from Seattle Avionics. i can only guess that they will set the price.
