GARMIN Pre-Programmed Marine Data Cards

What kind of BlueChart card does your Garmin unit take?
Garmin offers detailed marine maps and charts on g2 data cards, g2 micoSD cards, and g2 Vision microSD cards, formats that make it easy and convenient to load detailed charts to your compatible Garmin. These data cards do not include any software for use on a PC. If PC use is required, pre-planning can be done with Garmin's HomePort marine planning software. See the product compatibility lists below to determine which card is recommended for your device.
