Do these charts show the contour lines @ the Washington and Norfolk Canyon #MUS301 B ?
Thanks

The garmin website should show the area of coverage, if not call cust service.

I have the North Atlantic Canyons chart, great fishing tool.

I can't answer you directly,for i have the North Atlantic #300B it only goes south as far as The Bumb,and South Vries Canyon.But i don't really like the way they work,you really have to have the scale set to 3 miles and lower to obtain the detail contour lines.It does not allow you to see the detail at ranges that you would use to plan a trip offshore with.Also when a inshore data card and the bathymetric card are used together in a say 2010 model there is conflicts and some areas the data for one or the other is overlapped and won't show up so it's best to use only 1 card at a time.
The other thing is the Bathymetric Charts are availible on a CD Rom a lot cheaper than the pre programed card from Garmin and you have a easier product to plan your trips offshore with.

Here is the web address for the NOAA Bathymetric site

The MUS301b chart covers from just south of NY to somewhere in SC. So to answer your question yes it cover the washington canyon. I have this chart and don't have any complaints. I run it in my 2006c.

Hey Goldman:
Did you fish much @ the Washington last year?
I fished the Norfolk and had a decent year. I'm plannng on trying a few overnighters this summer and wanted to try the Washington. How was the Longfin Bite in the Washingto?

Thanks

Tim
