Default BUYER BEWARE: Garmin Charts - Amazon

Per our conversation the following charts you purchased from the Amazon vendor appear to be fraudulent as they are missing the required Anti-Piracy files needed to properly unlock within our chartplotters and software applications.
After reviewing both of the SD Cards, we verified the cards are missing the *.gma, *.unl, & *.gcd, which are required for validation.
These card errors are coming up now due to the Anti-Piracy protection features contained within the latest chartplotter software update.
I regret these cards are no longer working and recommended reaching out to Amazon to request a refund.

Yes. When you see a G2 Vision card online for $99 instead of its usual $300, it is either pirated or used and has old data.
