This is the upgrade chart for the Garmin chartplotters. It has the same information as the G2 charts, the navigational and and outstanding bathymetric charts, but adds a few features, automatic guidance, underwater 3d and google earth overlay. It is important to note the only new information is the google earth overlay, the underwater 3d uses the bathymetric charting information, not data from the depth sounder. If you have a Garmin Marine Network, you will only need 1 chart card no matter how many units you have connected to the network. Also, this chart covers the bottom part of the North Island, so keep that in mind if you only pop across Cook straight occasionally

BlueChart g2 Vision allows you to see your vessel’s precise, on-chart position in relation to naviads, coastal features, anchorages, obstructions, waterways, restricted areas and more. You will also have access to detailed mapping capabilities that include Safety Shading, Fishing Charts, smooth data transition between zoom levels, harmonious transition across chart borders, and reduction of chart discontinuities. Premium features include 3-D perspective above and below the waterline, Auto Guidance, high-resolution imagery, and “real picture” aerial photos of ports, harbors, marinas, waterways, landmarks and other points of interest. It’s the most realistic mapping display Garmin has ever offered.
