Default Garmin Charts- New York Offshore??

Fish the NorthEast Canyons and installed new software on my 7612 and my g2 chart no longer works-- looking to buy from Garmin but the the coastal chart cuts off at 50 fathoms or so... Cant seem to find one that covers our canyon area... Any info would be appreciated..

Thanks Gents...

I use the Boston-Norfalk G2 Vision chip. It will cover all the areas you care about. Here is a screen grab of the coverage area:

I have it but don't really use it. For me, HomePort is a much better planning and plotting tool. I have to use Garmin Express for map updates so all that leaves AC for is system updates and active captain community updates. I haven't really warmed up to the ac community yet.

It works, more or less. It's just that other things work better.

it's still a V1 product though. If they can re-integrate it with homeport or the navionics app (homeport is much better imho) then it might be more useful.

Also a link between inreach, homeport, and ac would be nice. But for now, just a complicated mess of not quite there features.
