I have used Garmin Bluecharts on my PC. I like to build routes on the PC and downloaded them to an Etrex Garmin handheld. This all has worked well from my style.

Garmin seems to be eliminating Bluecharts on a CD and going with the SD cards.

What is the best software for a PC to display charts, Marina's etc., build routes, and then down load them to a garmin(With charts)

Any ideas?

The Garmin software will still be able to do that AFAIK.

PC Charting with Garmin
What software? I talked to Garmin and they said there is currently no Garmin PC Software that provides the ability to do routes on a PC with Charts on their SD cards. You can do it on your chart plotter, yes. But I like small hand helds and that is a pain.
