Default Number of way points on garmin

I have two 8212 and one 7610xsv. I know total per unit is 3000. If they are all networked, is the max still the same? Or can you have more?

I dont see why you couldnt have 5000 on each one and access them all via the network. Havent tried it though. I never came close to having 5000 waypoints

Thanks for the correction. I am just curious. When I downloaded it into the mfds, you can't tell where it's being saved but I assume on each one since I was able to see it on each unit when the other ones were not on.

I guess you can save some on each unit without sharing. After that, turn the sharing on than all units will be able to see all the way points if you have more than 5000?

With User Data Sharing enabled, all MFDs will have the same waypoints, up to 5000. With User Data Sharing disabled, each MFD allows for up to 5000 unique waypoints.
