Default garmin echomap 50dv preloaded?

Looking to possible upgrade my plotter combo.
Unfortunately due to the current unit being a lowrance, I have a Navionics South East card.
I read where Nav cards are not comparable with Garmin. I have been really looking at the garmin echomap 50dv. Some say it is preloaded with Blue Chart g2, but I wanted to know if that covers coastal areas (NC to South FL). I really had to by another chip.
Anyone have any experience with this unit in regards to map detail?

Yes you are correct. The echoMap 50dv CAN come preloaded with BlueChart Coastal maps. It can also be bought preloaded with just a worldwide base map or LakeVu so you have to make sure you're getting the right one. The U.S. coastal covers the entire US coast line so you would be covered in NC and south FL.

HERE is the one you're gonna want.
