Last week purchased a brand new Garmin G-2 Data Card for my Garmin 178C. Took it to my boat this weekend only to discover that this card isn't compatibale with the 178C.

A brief description of the product directly from the Garmin website is below. For a complete list of the Garmin products compatible with this product, click the link I have attached below the description. When you visit the site, you can see how cool the data on the chip really is. The clairity looks amazing. The data card has obviously never been used as I discovered this weekend it wasn't compatible with my 178C. Asking $150 delivered. Again it's the NY region chip: US004R - Providence to New York, includes Narragansett Bay, all of Long Island, the entire Hudson River, New York Harbor through Perth Amboy and Brick Township - Updated 3/06.

Retails for over $215 on the Garmin site. Asking only $150 delivered. Save $65 plus shipping costs.

What is BlueChart® g2?
Exceptional chartplotters deserve the best in cartography. Garmin has made the best even better with a new-generation version of BlueChart. BlueChart® g2 is here. And it has all the detail of traditional BlueChart, but with 3D perspective, and richer detail and content.

This new-generation BlueChart g2 features smoother layering and better integration of map graphics, for faster redraws and more cohesive panning, scrolling and zooming. It features richer colors and shading for easier interpretation and improved visibility. Also, it adds more detail on land features, coastal roadways, marine services and municipal areas (A). You’ll find useful data on tides and currents – plus familiar IALA navaid symbology. A growing worldwide database of high-quality photo content gives “real picture” detail on many harbors, ports, marinas and coastal features (B). And, best of all, the new BlueChart g2 features a choice of new 3D “mariner’s-eye-view” map perspective, or the familiar 2D direct-overhead view – to make chart reading and orientation easier (C). When you want to make the most of your time on the water, BlueChart g2 is cartography you can count on.

The difference is in the details.
Like all BlueChart cartography, the new g2 version is styled to match the appearance of paper charts, when displayed on your Garmin chartplotter (D). Features include shading between depth contours, spot soundings, navaids, port plans, wrecks, obstructions, intertidal zones, restricted areas and more. Sharp, colorful, finely detailed graphics let you see every cartographic contour and feature, with a minimum of panning and zooming to bring the chart data into focus. BlueChart g2 cartography is offered in the form of preprogrammed data cards, which can be plugged directly into compatible Garmin chartplotters for easy data loading or updating.

BlueChart g2 features:
large coverage areas
shaded depth contours
smoother layering, enhanced color
2D or 3D display perspective
port plans and geo-indexed photos
improved IALA symbology
