    boat Multiple BlueChart g2 Vision maps on one card?

    With a lot of reading and the search feature I have figured out how to work with the maps. Thank you.
    I am on the water a lot and looking at the garmin maps i frequent 3 different zones and enter a 4th a few times a year.
    Is it possible to have multiple maps on one card?
    I appreciate all the help.

    Bluecharts are sold one per sd and work in plotter one per sd in a Garmin folder, more than one BC per sd wont show.
    Please use Discussion section for questions about these matters, here is to post Maps and discussions about these maps in their own threads.
    Thanks

    Thank you for the answer and I am sorry for my confusion.
    I figured a map question would go in the maps forum.

    I suggest to buy cheap 4 gb sd cards, copy BCs and swap them when needed

    I have a couple of BC files on my Micro SD for my HandHeld, and I just use a USB reader to plug into my PC and change the name of the chart I want to actually use to GMAPSUPP.IMG and the unit will read it, the one I am NOT using, I change the file name to the chart name so I know what it is, ie: Cheaspeake Bay, or SE Florida.

    So you will only have to have one card but you can store multiple charts on it.

    Another question off topic.
    When looking at downloading a locked map I see they are coming in 2 or 3 different parts.
    I have only converted single .img files.
    How do I convert all 3 files into one? Or do I have 3 image files on one card?

    Some big files are compressed in multiparts to upload them on host sites, but the Bluechart img is just one, use WinRAR or 7Zip: right click , on part 1 choose uncompress and the whole img will be uncompressed in one single file
