Garmin BlueChart – Greig, on Mar 29, 2015 asked:

During my research I noticed that Garmin has their own set of maps, but Simrad and others accept other map cards. How are the Garmin maps for our region? Have you heard any complaints about accuracy or detail for west coast waters?

Michael, on Jun 05, 2012 asked:

I just recently bought the new retinal display iPad (my first apple product!). I want to make it a chart plotter to back up my old Garmin 2010. I've looked at a GPS receiver called Bad Elf that goes for $99 so I don't have to rely on data connections or WiFi. Now I'm looking at chart plotting software that resides on the unit, is good for our West Coast waters and does not need data or WiFi. Any suggestions?

I just read your PY article and wanted to ask about my Garmin 178C GPS Chartplotter. The depth display is blank or shows a very small value (~2 ft) even in deep water and the speed is sometimes off as well. Is this something that can be repaired?

Dale, on Feb 22, 2011 asked:

I am interested in a chartplotter/fishfinder combo to use when I go fishing. I heard about the Garmin GPSMAP 720s. On Garmin's website the 720s is listed as a sounder. What is the difference between a depth sounder, a fishfinder and sonar?
