Default Upgrading Garmin Maps

I have lake vu maps on a new to me garmin 76 xsv. I want the most accurate maps for the bay for depths and contours. I downloaded the comminity aps. I can upgrade lake vu for $30 or get g3 vision for $350.
What do you all recommend?
Thanks

I wouldn’t do either. I would get the chip for $175. The US coastal all chip is the one I believe.

This one: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/37703

You can get it at Hodges Marine for $175 I believe.

I'd call Garmin and ask them what the specific differences are. It looks like the G3 Vision has a few more bells and whistles, but the specifics of the charts looks to be the same...

Little something to look into. If you buy the g2 charts now, you get a free upgrade to g3. But check first, I haven't done it myself. That may be the difference between the 175 and 275 costs. Ask in the electronics forum.

I would check... I *think* the upgrade from G2 to G3 is $75. Not free, but a lot less than full price.
