Default Garmin Mapping Options?

Does Garmin offer shaded bathymetric maps of the Gulf of Mexico?

x2. See https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/maps.../prod8810.html . Newer Garmin plotters can display shaded 3D views with the Vision charts.

$428 is MSRP. If you shop around, you can find them for far less than that.

How does it compare to the navionics fish'n chip for detail and accuracy? Anyone have any screen shots of the east coast of Florida in the 1000-2000 ft range. Just curious of what garmins top of the line bathymetric chart looks like.
