Bought a Garmin Oregon for a backup GPS on my boat, ordered BlueChart g2 for east coast. Micro SD chip is easy to install (but need to remove from larger, SD chip holder). User has control of detail level on GPS, which is very useful.
But, I also wanted to view this chart on my computer (Mac) and the instructions in the package are worthless in this regard. If you want to view a Garmin BlueChart Micro SD on your computer, you will need to purchase and download Garmin's Homeport application (yes, buy it, they give away the BaseCamp software, but not Homeport :-( , install Homeport, then connect your GPS to computer using USB cable. You could also use the SD Chip holder to insert card into SD slot on computer if you have one.
Once Homeport is installed and setup, the Blue Chart becomes very, very useful. You can now set up waypoints and routes on your pc and download to GPS .
WARNING - when downloading data to your GPS, be sure you do not overwrite the BlueChart maps...Garmin really should write-protect these cards.

I use the G2 vision in the waters of Puget Sound, the Straits of San Juan De Fuca, and the straits of georgia. For navivation, G2 makes the 546 series garmin chartplotter much nicer - great pictures, the find gas, food, services feature and route plotting enabled by the G2 vision card are great.
For fishing though, the detailed topograpic data for dept and bottom formations is unreliable and often misleading. In some cases it is right, but in more cases than not, I feel that someone cheated and just drew lines by hand and guessed the depth based on shoreline countours. This can be disasterous to trolled gear - and more than once the detailed fishing maps show a flat bottom and a spire rises up that is not on the chart and you have to scramble to save your gear. Since this is why I bought the chip, if you are looking at the fishing chart feature, i have found that Lowrance fishing charts are the way to go. Sorry Garmin, but you should have paid for the accurate depth charts instead of going to "Depth are us".

Great product for coastal boating and fishing.

By Jeff

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Detailed charts for navigation and fishing.

Cons

  • None.

Best Uses

  • Coastal and river boating and fishing.

Comments about Garmin HXUS039R, US, Western Canada & Bahamas BlueChart g2 microSD Card:

I have found the charts provided to be substantially better than the ones that came pre-loaded on my Garmin 431s. My GPS was pre-loaded with the freshwater lakes charts, which are very good. But, when boating in the Keys, the pre-loaded charts were basic, to put it kindly.

Garmin clearly wants you to buy their coastal charts as well. I was happy to do so, but I don't understand why they can't provide these pre-loaded anyway. You should not have to guess where the dividing line between the pre-loaded good charts and the basic charts are.

If they want to use this method to sell charts, they should list all waters in an advertising specifications sheet so you know what you are buying.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was prompt and the product worked as advertised.

Comments about Garmin HXUS039R, US, Western Canada & Bahamas BlueChart g2 microSD Card:

Just be cautious that this chip is for the ocean and not freshwater lakes... Made the wrong choice now I can't return it...wish it was clearer in wording but maybe I missed it

        Comments about Garmin HXUS039R, US, Western Canada & Bahamas BlueChart g2 microSD Card:

        I just recently purchased a 40 year old sailboat and am refitting her with hopes of spending much time in the coastal waters of Maine. I am sure that this Bluechart in my Garmin GPSMAP 76Cx will hold me in good stead. I will still have my paper charts as a back up and will use them in conjunction with the E-chart as the display on the 76Cx is somewhat small. But this product is all that I hoped it would be and more. Very detailed, accurate, and easy to read.
