Hi All.

Does anyone here have one of the newer Garmin Marine GPSMAP 8000 series MFD units ?

The 82xx units come with "Pre-Loaded" g2 marine chart and I am wondering how in the world they get updated into the 64GB of internal memory. It may be, that in order to have "updated" charts, you would have to get the latest charts on an SD card and use it only in the SD Card reader for the unit.

From the pictures I have seen of these units, they have no USB or other external connections that would allow you to interface with a computer. They have numerous other type connections to connect other instruments, but no USB.

Has anyone been able to successfully connect to the internal memory of these units ?

I have a MOD here looking to take a look at the OS files too.
