GPSMAP 192C is ideal for seafarers who log a lot of miles on their
boats, or for people who don't have access to a PC to load individual
charts onto their plotter. The unit contains built-in, highly-detailed
BlueChart cartography of the coastal United States, including
Alaska and Hawaii. This data provides detailed coastlines, shaded
depth contours, navaids, port plans, wrecks, restricted areas,
and more. Boaters can also purchase pre-programmed
data cards of other BlueChart regions - like Canada
or the Bahamas - or charts of inland U.S. lakes.

Q: "Why is BlueChart cartography for Canada not included
on the GPSMAP 192C?"
A (From Garmin): "We are able to offer full US
coverage since our US data is given to us for free from the
US government. In Canada we pay some of the highest royalties
in the world."
Canadian charts can be added, either on a pre-programmed
BlueChart data card, or, if PC use is preferred for chart
display and course planning, with the MapSource
BlueChart Americas CD-ROM (a blank data card is required,
Management Kit is
a recommended accessory for use with MapSource.)
