Dog Ship is on a distinguished road
I have talked to Garmin directly and pretty much every distributor we have in town in hopes that someone had some older equipment or blue charts still kicking around.
I have found a guy in Texas who sells the Blue chart USB card reader on ebay and I will order one in hopes of reactivating the memory card. But, right now that's just a shot in the dark.
You can still get charts for the 3000 series plotters but mine is a 2000 series and a bit older than yours and is not compatible with G2 blue charts.
The unit I currently have has the sonar modual but it does not have an integraded radar, I have a stand alone radar. But I do agree that an integraded radar is the way to go. When I do replace this unit I will go with a sonar and an integraded radar/plotter system.
In Canada we are required to carry paper charts, no less than 2 years old, on board vessels that are 9 metres or more in length and I do refer to them constantly.
I am more curious as to peoples opinions on other manufactures plotters.
ie; Lowrance, Standard Horizon, Hummingbird, Furuno, etc.
Cause right now the door is wide open for a replacement.

In Canada, from my perspective and experience, Lowrance is the winner hands down. Integrated Canadian Navionics charts, great service and very competitive pricing.
