Bluechart G2 chip in handheld Garmin 76CSx?
In a nearby thread I asked for recommendations for "minimalist coastal navigation". In that post I declared I would use a handheld Garmin 76CSx as an emergency backup to "traditional" (chart-based) navigation techniques, but not install the Bluechart G2 chip with detailed charts.
Now West Marine has that Bluechart G2 chip on sale for $99 and has me thinking.
Can those of you first-hand experienced with the Bluechart G2 chip in a Garmin 76 series handheld provide feedback on your impressions on the chip's usability and usefulness? Would you buy it again? Why or why not?
