Default Garmin

I bought the chip. For a fisherman I can see its value. For a powerboater Its almost useless. It has street images loaded of citys,streets and points of interest on land. The nav feature of 3D is tough to use at 90mph. The maps and features preloaded in the 545 are plenty. Save your money on the chip
