    Dear everybody,
    I have found the 'stream current arrow" on Bluechart G2 vision (VAE009R-Sin/Mal/Indonesia) but it only show at the current station. In around the current station, I can not see any other arrow the show the stream current. I dont know whether can we show many stream current around "current station" on this image below.

    Thank for your detail instructions. However I want to know whether in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia sea zone, with Bluecharts G2 Vision Garmin, can we show Animated Tide and Current Indicators in detail No.1 posting in this subject. In copase Bluecharts G2 Vision Garmin not support. As your opinion, what can I do to update the Animated Tide and Current Indicators by using the other softwares or other method?
    I know at Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia sea zone, only on FURUNO chart can be show Animated Tide and Current Indicators in detail. Can I extract Animated Tide and Current Information and after that build a new layer for Garmin Bluecharts.

    Dear Catymag and everybody,
    I really need to show the stream current direction arrow in the bluechart of Garmin. But in South China Sea area don't have the stream current data or only have the data at tide station. If you have any way to import the current data from other brands as Onwa, Furuno to Garmin bluechart, please show me how to do?

    Thanks and best regards,
