    re: BlueChart G2 Vision Aegean Sea & Sea of Marmara VEU015R 2010 UNLOCKED

    Hi,

    I have a garmin gpsmap 421s, I bought an 2GB SD card, I created a folder named Garmin to the card.
    I copy inside that folder the unlocked map.
    I insert the SD card to 421s but nothing happens, no BlueChart G2 Vision map.
    When I insert the SD card back to card reader it shows that is full and with strange folders and files with names like "-__$#_*^$"
    Any help, Do you know what i do wrong?

    thank you,

    Nick

    Format the SD Card to make it good as new (choose between Fat & Fat 32), create a Garmin folder & copy the map. The file is almost 1.2G so there's no way a 2G card to be full by G2 Vision.

    Hi Santosan!

    Thank you a lot - a very good Job!

    I compared it with the "old" BlueChart Atlantic 2008 and it seems, that there are several places, where the old chart is better, i.e. more depth soundings then the new chart (for instance around Porto Heli / Spetse Island where I use to sail very often).

    But the pictures of harbours etc. are very good!

    Best greetings to Hellas

    thank you very much for your fast replay.
    I did all you said but it still does work.

    In a strange way after i put the SD card back inside my card reader it shows broken structure,
    with strange folders and files with names like "-__$#_*^$".

    My gpsmap 421s firmware was 3.10 2010, and I recently upgrade it to version 3.20.
    Maybe I have to downgrade firmware to version 2.60 or older to be compatible with
    BlueChart G2 Vision map.
    I olso check it with a second SD card but without success!
    SD cars should be O.K. becouse with this card I did the firmware update and olso
    421s saves to this card without problem.
    Do you have successfully load maps to gpsmaps with 3.10-3.20 firmwares?

    thank you,

    Nick

    You won't be able to take full use of the map as it's made to work fully only in spesific devices ( like gpsmap 421).
    It's better to use Bluechart Atlantic 2008.5, it will work very well with your device.

    The map has been tested in 421 & 521 without any problem by owners of the specific devices not by me. They gave a feedback that the map is OK but they didn't gave more details like firmware versions & such........The map is pretty new (March 2010) i don't know if a downgraded firmware version is the right way to go...................
