Default Garmin 192 c need a little help

Hello all
I bought a used boat and it had this 192 c unit on it working. Is this a fairly good unit ?

Also it works here in the keys inside The canals but when I get a 1/2 mile from shore no chart ?

the guy must have taken the maps there is no manual ( I plan to download one on the garmin site )

What type map do I need for the waters of the Florida Keys and Bahamas ?

Wheres the best place to get one for the unit

Thanks in advance

Jon

I may have a chart for that unit. I bought it last year in Marathon and don't need it anymore.

try changing the chart detail in map setup from the (probably set) default of "normal" to "most".

Open the little door on the front. Is there a chart in it? If not then get with wstrickland1.

You may also want to check the software version. It should have the latest software installed if it does not have it. This will keep it working well.

That unit should have been pre-programmed with maps. I have an extra chip FL and the Bahamas if you need. Give me a mailing address - X-large t shirts help accelerate the process.

How does one up date the software on the unit ? I only see the card slot on the 192c How do you get the software from the computer to 192c

Jon:

After looking at the manual, the method you should use (by far the easiest) in downloading updates is to get a card reader and a blank chip and follow the process I described in my PM.

I'd suggest you look on ebay or put a message here on the forum for used stuff. IHAD an extra reader but it's lost in all my garbage. If I can find it I'll let you know.
