When marine mapping is programmed by Garmin onto a microSD/SD card, these maps are locked to that specific card. It is not possible to back up these maps, either onto a computer or onto a different microSD/SD card.

This includes, but not limited to, the following marine mapping:

  • BlueChart g2
  • BlueChart g2 Vision
  • Canada LakeVu HD
  • Canada LakeVu HD Ultra
  • LakeVu HD
  • LakeVu HD Ultra
