Introduction > Overview
Introduction
BlueChart® g2 is Garmin’s exclusive line of highly-detailed marine cartography. BlueChart
g2 cartography features smoother layering and better integration of map graphics for faster
redraws and more cohesive panning, scrolling, and zooming.
Overview
Blue Chart g2 features richer colors and shading for easier interpretation and improved
visibility. BlueChart g2 has all the detail of traditional BlueChart, but with additional
functions, such as an optional “mariner’s-eye view” map perspective. With BlueChart g2
preprogrammed data cards, you can access costal roads and points of interest (POIs) as well as
a growing worldwide database of high-quality navigationally significant photos. These photos
give “real picture” detail for many harbors, ports, marinas and coastal features.
BlueChart g2 cartography features a growing database of aerial
photography to give mariners a visual overview of harbors,
marinas, waterways, and other points of reference.
BlueChart g2 User’s Guide
Introduction > Introduction
Additional BlueChart g2 enhancements include:
• Shaded depth contours
• Mariner’s eye view map perspective
• Port plans and navigationally significant photos
• Improved IALA symbology
• Intertidal zones with spot soundings
• Navaids with view range and coverage
• Data on tides and currents
• Coastal roads, marinas, points of interest
• Wrecks, restricted areas, anchorages
• Shoals, spoilage, and more
Like all BlueChart cartography, BlueChart g2 cartography is styled to match the appearance
of paper charts when displayed on your Garmin chartplotter. Sharp, colorful, finely detailed
graphics let you see every cartographic contour and feature, with minimal panning and
zooming to bring the chart data into focus.

loading a required software update.
BlueChart g2 User’s Guide
Getting Started> Installing a BlueChart g2 Preprogrammed Data Card
Installing a BlueChart g2 Preprogrammed Data Card
Look for a compartment door or rubber weather cap on the bottom (or front for large
chartplotters) of your Garmin unit. Beneath the door or weather cap is a slot for a data card.
Data Card Slot on a
GPSMAP 3206/3210
Data Card Slot on a
GPSMAP 492/498
To insert the card, place the card into the slot (connector end first) with the label facing toward
the front of the Garmin unit. When the card is in place, close the compartment door, or reinsert
the rubber weather cap. See your Garmin unit owner’s manual for specific card installation
instructions.
Caution
Insert the connector end of the card into the card slot. Improper installation can result in
damage to your Garmin unit and can void your warranty.
Caution
BlueChart g2 Preprogrammed Data Card Caution: Do NOT use preprogrammed
BlueChart g2 data cards for saving MapSource maps. The preprogrammed data will
be lost. Remove any BlueChart g2 cards in your Garmin unit before transferring
MapSource maps to the unit to avoid losing the preprogrammed data. If you overwrite
the preprogrammed data on a BlueChart g2 card, Garmin will NOT replace or recover
the lost data.
BlueChart g2 User’s Guide
Viewing BlueChart g2 > Understanding BlueChart g2 Data
Viewing BlueChart g2 Information
BlueChart g2 technology for the coastal United States (including Alaska and Hawaii)
is preloaded on Garmin’s GPSMAP 492 and GPSMAP 498 chartplotters, as well as its
large- display GPSMAP 2200 series and GPSMAP 3200 series of chartplotters.
To access additional BlueChart g2 functionality, you can purchase preprogrammed data cards.
These BlueChart g2 data cards include highly detailed coastal roads and points of interest such
as restaurants, lodging, local attractions, and more. Full-color aerial photos of ports, marinas,
bridges, and navigational landmarks are also included on many data cards. See page 6 for

Viewing BlueChart g2 > Accessing Additional Object Information
Accessing Paper-Chart-Specific Information
BlueChart g2 cartography provides paper-chart-specific information, such as chart publisher,
print date, edition date, NTM (Notice to Mariners), correction date, and scale. Additional notes
are available for the paper charts.
To view paper-chart-specific information on your Garmin unit:
Place the unit’s cursor on an open area of the chart, and press ENTER. A
window shows the chart information and allows you to view additional notes
about the chart area.
BlueChart g2 maps stay true to chart presentation and do not modify content. By providing
paper chart-specific information, you can know exactly from which chart and scale each
displayed feature is digitized. BlueChart g2 electronic charts are a faithful reproduction of the
published official paper charts that mariners are required to carry.
BlueChart g2 data is not seamless. Just like the paper charts from which the data is derived,
you might observe some discontinuity along chart borders on your Garmin unit. For example,
if a contour is present on one chart, and not on the adjacent chart, the BlueChart g2 data is
represented on your Garmin unit the same way.
BlueChart g2 User’s Guide
Viewing BlueChart g2 > Understanding the Differences Between Charts
Understanding the Differences Between Electronic
and Paper Charts
Occasionally, boaters notice that the BlueChart g2 data does not duplicate a particular feature
shown on the paper chart they are using. Garmin uses the best charts available and carefully
turns the paper charts into a digital format for display on an electronic screen. If there are
errors, omissions, or discrepancies on paper, they might occur electronically too.
On paper charts, sometimes even large features like a breakwater might not be shown clearly
or at all. Large breakwaters are sometimes not shown on the harbor charts, but are shown on
coastal charts—or vice versa. These decisions are made by the chart maker, such as NOAA/
NOS. In some cases, bridges, or other features washed away in storms decades ago, are still
shown on the paper charts. Recent changes in coastlines are often not reflected on paper charts
for years.
The same is true for new marinas and ports. Sometimes, well-known local landmarks might be
shown so small on the paper chart that they are indistinguishable from surrounding features to
someone not familiar with the area. In these cases, a feature might not be accurately depicted
on the electronic chart.
Reporting Chart Errors
Even when a feature is shown on the paper chart, it can be overlooked or misspelled during the
data entry process. These are small problems that can be easily corrected and do not affect the
quality of the overall BlueChart g2 data.
If you notice something missing or incorrect in the BlueChart g2 data, first check the best
available scale paper charts of the area to see how the feature is represented on the paper
chart. If we have not represented it accurately, or if you know additional information about the
feature, visit Garmin’s Web site and fill out the online error report form. You can find this form
at www.garmin.com/cartography/.
