I have used several brands over the years and the Garmin Blue Chart is by far my favorite. It is much better than the C-map.

Just buy color and get the blue chart and I'm sure you will be very pleased.

We have both the 276C and the 2006C and they both do a very good job.

No, I have not tried it yet. I'm sure that it is probably very good.

I have used this company for some accessories and have received good service.

The 192 looks like a bigger unit?

Here's another good one--Standard Horizon. Uses C-Map charts and you can copy routes to a balnk chip from computer software and read the route on the Standard.

I replaced a Standard with a SIMRAD--nice goods but Standard is MUCH better.

The instructions that came with my 5500X say that you can't flush mount the 5500I, if you look at pictures of it the antenna sticks out of the top.

Does anybody know how the prices for the different chips compare from the C-map to the Blue chart.

2010C---step up, it's worth it. Shows all the pertinent info in letters as big as a 182!

I would love to step up to a large GPS like that but I am a little short on dash space so it would have to go on the deck
