    Default More than one Marine Chart on a Card ?

    I know I can have several Garmin charts on one SD card and it work fine on my handheld 76CSx. But they are not "Vision" charts since the 76CSx is not compatible with the vision charts.

    But I have a new Garmin 8212 (Glass Helm) and want to use a 16GB SD card and load several of the Vision Charts on it.

    Will it work ? Can I choose between the charts to use or am I stuck using one Vision chart per card and swapping them out when I change areas?

    Thanks.

    Yes, most probably not a problem. Even I think you don't need to swap between the maps if they overlap each other.

    Otherwise you can use this one:

    Only one map per SDcard, named gmapsupp.img in Garmin folder.
    Your device already has one "build-in" map plus one SDcard map.
    If you want two maps-two SDcards you have to use Garmin Card Reader.
