Default LOTO GPS Mapping

I have a Garmin 276c that I wanted to buy mapping software to use at LOTO. Which software or data card is the best for showing marinas, restaurants, etc. I will not be using the GPS for much more than this - I might like to see Lake Mich off Chicago. Given that you probably can't get both without paying extra - best one for LOTO?

Tim, I have a cheap solution to your problem. You just need to take me along to navigate for you on your trip. This will easily save a a little $$$ on the program that you could buy me cocktails with while we are there.

Hey Brian,

Yeah that way we can both get lost! If you remember the first year we met there I did pretty good even in the dark. I swear as I get older I need a map to get to the pisser.

The Garman inland lakes maps are pretty good. Has cove names and all the lake roads. From there you can program in most of the hotspots.

It's much better than the map on roads map.
