Default Does anyone use garmin blue charts?

I'm looking at the charts through the mapsource software on my computer and there are the little icons with an "I" in them. When you put the cursor over them they say "Information" but nothing else. Do you know if there is actually information associated with the icons and if so where do you go to view it? Here's a pic of what they look like.

Yes. I don't have it in front of me but from memory, after right-clicking, you should be able to open the "properties" on the item. It will then list information obout that feature, like what it is(obstruction, wreck, warning, etc.), it will give coordinates and a few other tidbits of info depending on what it is.

Thanks nick, I was always using the zoom icon so nothing was working. It's good to see they have the individual map notes listed as well.

Good deal. It's really a neat package and is full of info. I love mine, it's the single best piece of equipment I've ever bought for the boat.
