Default Garmin service alert

Sorry if this has been brought up already.

Certain Garmin chartplotters may incorrectly or incompletely draw areas of marine charts in a way that makes land or shallow water areas appear to be navigable water.

Thanks, I almost forgot to update. I have the chip right next to me. That didn't do me much good yesterday when I was getting two conflicting Fishing Chart overlays at once. Same page said I was in 45' and 147' at the same time.

Do I download this to a SD card and install in my 4212?

I ran 5.8 all weekend and the bug has been corrected.

Download the update file to you PC Desktop, then double click on it with your SD card in your card reader slot, the program will un-pack itself (it's zipped), and then install itself onto your SD card. Then just insert that SD card into your plotter and it will ask if you want to do the update, say yes and off it goes. Takes 5 minutes. Make sure ALL yoru devices are powered up (fishfinder, WX reciever, radar....).
