Default Advice on Charts for Garmin GPS


I have a Garmin 741xs on my boat and I am looking to use a different chart with it. Specifically, I am looking for a chart that has depth contours shown. The standard chart doesn't show the depth contour.

Here's my challenge. I looked on the Garmin site and I am not really sure which of these charts I should purchase. My boat is used in saltwater on the Atlantic Coast (Raritan Bay, NJ for specifics). There are BlueChart g2 noted on the website. These come as HD, Vision HD and one with satellite imagery. The others are labeled LakeVu and finally a Fishing Hot Spots one.

Does anyone use any of these alternatives? Which would you recommend? Thanks!

The BlueChart mapping is what you need. LakeVu is inland mapping. Contact the Cartography dept. directly. They can make sure you get the card you need.
