Garmin 545s Chart updates

Im considering updating the charts in the named plotter. Has anyone done this? Am trying to determine what date of charts I currently have (unit says G21 V2.51) and what date I would be updating too. Garmin is pretty cryptic about the whole thing. Im not really crazy about the user interface to the 545 (panning is a joke), and dont want to invest a whole lot if an iPad with charts is in my near future, and as a whole, much cheaper to maintain & keep updated.

Was just recently sailing behind Shackleford Banks in NC, and my depth readings where WAY off, in addition to a nav aid that wasnt listed in my charts.
