hobo, May 22, 2013 I received the Canadian waters card in error but decided to keep it and reorder the US card. Just got the US card yesterday and it works great as well.
MajorPeabody, July 16, 2010 These charts do a good job, when you are in the coverage
area. I assumed (my mistake) that Baja Mexico and the Sea
of Cortez were part of North America. If you are cruising
in the Sea, or anywhere off the Mexico coast, these maps
will do you no good.
Gopher Baroque, May 8, 2010 Card just arrived yesterday for use in Oregon 450. I
boat-camp the Washington San Juans and wanted to add charts
to my new O450 to supplement island hopping, primarily to
flag hazards to navigation. I generally know the lay of the
islands and use an old diner placemat for reference. "Let's
see, we go north to the happy seagull and turn left and look
for a big clam..."
Anyway, the Garmin card threw me for few minutes as the
micro-SD card (that the Oregon 450 uses) came tucked into
the SD adapter, not the separate little storage area in the
plastic storage case. After I found it, the micro-SD card
popped into the Oregon just fine and the maps were available
on starting the GPS. The display mesh between marine and
topo is seamless. The level of marine detail is good for
navigating into a harbor. I zoomed into places I am
familiar with and details seem to be a little skimpier than
traditional charts. This may just be a function of my
inexperience with the Oregon, though.
The other small detail to note is that Garmin uses Sandisk
as the card supplier. This unit uses a 4GB mSD card, which
happens to match the Oregon 450's on-board storage. I'm not
hooked up to the laptop running MapSource, so I can't check
how much space is available for bonus material.
