Default Attention Garmin Users Who Plan to Upgrade to the New CP's

If you planning on upgrading your current Garmin Chartplotters to the new 500/4000/5000 series there is a difference in the new CP's memory media.

The new CP's use SD Memory chips instead of the existing Garmin media. You'll have to have an SD reader/writer attached to your computer and an additional SD Memory chip (64 MB) so that you can transfer your existing Garmin tracks/routes/waypoints to your new Garmin.

If you use the Map Source software you can use this to transfer your existing data to the SD media.
