There are hacker sites where you can download street updates for your auto GPS. I didn't see anything for marine charts. I did leave an inquiry though.

Insane...what the hell are these device makers thinking? I cant *WAIT* for Google to make them irrelevant with an Android Google Earth layer that is marine charts.

F4d3d Oops, I guess you can't use G2 Vision charts on that GPS. I think you can use G2 BlueCharts though, and I'm sure you can find them on ebay too.

F4d3d Hello!

I bought Garmin G2 Vision charts on ebay for a reasonable price. I did have some hassles with shipping, so if you go this route, be sure to buy from a reputable seller with plenty of good feedback from international buyers. Installed on my GPS (Plug-n-play on my GPSMap 640), they are really awesome!

Cheap charts for Garmin GPSMAP 76?

Hi there,
Cruising the Florida Cost, we have only used a Garmin GPSMAP 76 for navigation (without additional maps).
Now we are planning a Bahamas trip and we do need different/more maps/charts.

We will use a laptop and free software/maps to plan the trip, but we would like to use the Garmin GPSMAP 76 while we are under sails.

Does anybody know a web page where we can upload maps/charts of the Bahamas for free or little money? (We don't want to buy the expensive GARMIN maps)

Thanks for any hint!
