Gil, any truth to the rumor the CMOR maps are going to be embedded in these?

never heard that one. but they do have what garmin claims is the equivalent of cmor...high definition relief shading. will not work until a software update scheduled for april. and will only work with certain plotters. and, like cmor, coverage is spotty (most of their data are coming from the same gov't funded sources).

garmin site shows the coverage of the high def relief shading, example:



here is an example they show of what you'll see:

Dumb question of the day. I have the 1242xsv units on my boat (Thanks Gil!) with the G2 built in maps. Can I use the G3 Vision card before updating the built in maps to G3? (I have been waiting until all the bugs get worked out before using my free one time map update) Been reading that cards get locked to a specific unit/registration. So want to make sure I do things in the right order.

The G3 Vison will work independently of the built in G2/G3....so you can stay where you are with the current built in...so yes you can add the Vision now..and update to the G3 built in much later..

I have an 8610xsv and i'm very interested in the G3 Vision. I already have the G3 map in my unit, I just don't know if there is much bottom coverage in my area NC, VUS004R....Norfolk-Charleston or VUS512L.....Mid Atlantic. I guess i just hate to spend the money and not get any real benefit. Garmin really doesn't show much in the actual coverage of the map.

garmin shows which areas have the relief shading on their ‘coverage’ map. In addition to the relief shading there is also significantly improved bathymetric data for the area. You can email garmin and ask for a screen shot of specific areas to see what you’d be buying.

Is there somewhere to view the coverage for the mid-atlantic map (VUS512L)?

So the HD relief shading is throughout that entire box or just certain areas within the box?

looks like that's the pre-g3 coverage map which doesn't show relief shading coverage

Garmin has very limited info out as of yet on their website.
It would be nice to see some interactive links etc.
I received my Card's today ( Thanks Gil) and will try them out his weekend..but I do not expect to see the full features unitl after the software update in April.
