Not sure whether your Garmin marine or handheld system will be compatible with marine blue charts on preprogrammed microSD/SD cards? Simply email us, or use the online form on our contact us page and provide us with the unit's model, part and serial number normally located on the underside of your Garmin product. We'll then reply with the relevant webpage of available bluecharts for you to browse.

We also have a Garmin map Frequently Asked Questions page where you can ask a question and read questions and answers posted by other customers.

Please note: Older Garmin units e.g. GPSMAP 182c required a data card rather than a SD/microSD, but we no longer stock datacard versions of the BlueCharts - these have been discontinued by Garmin.


What's in the box

Garmin BlueChart g2 HD and g2 Vision HD

Please note: Premium features such as quickdraw and 1ft HD fishing contours/1ft shaded depth lines will only display on the latest Garmin chartplotters (there may be other features). Legacy models which don't already offer or include such a feature will not be able to display these features. Please be assured that the new mapping will not remove any features that you already have. To assist customers with older devices Garmin make the latest maps and charts backwards compatible with earlier devices - but data for features introduced for newer devices cannot be processed and displayed by legacy models. Map data cannot upgrade the features of a particular device.


Not sure what size Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision HD you want?

Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision HD marine charts are available in three different sizes, these are: Small, Regular and Large coverage. Please see the sample charts below, which all include Plymouth:

The larger the chart coverage the more area is covered without the need to change or buy additional charts. We suggest buying the chart(s) that provide the coverage for your sailing, fishing or yachting needs.

Please note: There is no difference in the chart detail between different size charts e.g. a Small chart and a Regular chart will have exactly the same detail. The ONLY difference is the coverage or area of water that is included within the blue chart. Of course, the larger the chart area, the higher the cost for that chart.


Why buy from us?

We are official Internet Retailers of Garmin products and we sell the genuine Garmin maps. We always aim to ensure the mapping available at our website is the most recent edition of the software. Beware of other websites selling older mapping that is not the current version of the software.
