You cannot upload those new charts they have to be run from the SD card. Insert your SD card and your unit will load those charts.

How do you like your 5208?

I am going to buy one next week for my 23 ft CC. Redoing all of my electronics at the end of the month and going with this one because of the NMEA0183 compatability with my radar. Love the idea of a touchscreen and feel it will be a huge upgrade from my current situation (2004 Garmin 178C...LOL)
