That was true of the old cards you could order preloaded with inland lakes. They are no longer available and you must order a $50 programmer, buy or have a Garmin proprietary Data Card, and buy the $100 DVD with the software. They now key the install to a unique device you select, and from then on it will only run on that unit, no others. I'd love to find out I am misunderstanding what I am reading, but that is how I read it. Anybody else have a different take?
