Default Lake maps for a Garmin 492C

I have a Garmin 492C which came with the Gulf Coast maps built in, but I would like to have the Texas Lake Maps available to me as well. I see you can buy a memory card for this unit. Do you buy that and some software to upload the maps to the card? Are there already cards that have the Texas Lake Maps in them? Hope someone can help. Thanks.

Check hot maps by navionics.

Check hot maps by navionics.
well, if you could some how jam the hot maps into the 492, that suggestion might work, however, in the real world, you can't get navionics cartography into a garmin unit. Here is the link to garmins card that you would need:

and here is the link to the list of all the lakes that Garmin covers on their various cards. Scroll down to Texas to see what is covered, as sometimes the lake you want isn't in their library:

SeaSwirler23...wound up calling Garmin customer support and they pointed me to the very card you linked to. It covers the lakes I'm interested in and got it ordered this afternoon. Thanks for y'alls help.
