Here is a photo of the same area (zoomed in) I took off the screen of my brand new [purchased last week of March 2010] GARMIN GPSMAP 546, This shows the difference between the vector chart, and the above raster image.

This one has the 18 ft contour running through the daymarker, which is not in agreement with the raster image in the above post showing the 6 foot contour outside of the daymarker.

If you go back to the Points East article, Roger Long says the daymarker was moved a few yards east-northeast in 2009, but not enough to put the daymarker outside the 6 ft contour.

Bottom line: Don't blindly follow the glowing cursor.
