I am on a budget, and about to buy the hds-5, If I fish the bay and delta, is the basmap going to be sufficient until I can buy navionics? will the gps get me around these areas for a bit? and show me some countors and hazzards?

The basemap is very limited and a mapping card of your choice is recommended. You can go to any West Marine or Bass Pro Shops and see if they have an HDS unit with basemap on display for you to view the areas you fish and see for yourself if they will do until you get your card.
