We are committed to providing updates for our marine cartography products. As updates become available, we will make every effort to ensure the areas of coverage for a given card remain the same. Updates may include new data or Notice to Mariners (NTM) changes.
When you purchase a new preloaded chartplotter, pre-programmed BlueChart® g3, BlueChart® g3 Vision, LakeVü g3 or LakeVü g3 Ultra microSD™ card, you’re entitled to the newest version1 of charts/maps. Visit Marine Chart/Map Updates to get started. Updated charts/maps will be for the same region (if available²) as the original purchase and are available via download only.
If your chartplotter came preloaded with BlueChart g3 or LakeVü g3 maps, you can update your charts/maps for the most accurate navigation.
If you have a preprogrammed BlueChart g3, BlueChart g3 Vision, LakeVü g3 or LakeVü g3 Ultra microSD card, you can update them for a discounted price³. You can download the updates, or you can visit a participating Garmin dealer to purchase the update on a microSD™ card. Updated charts/maps will be for the same region (if available²) as the original purchase and are available via download only.
Examine your BlueChart or LakeVü microSD card with SD adapter closely for damage immediately upon receipt.
