    help Marine charts on Garmin Data card format

    Hi all. I am a newbie here. I am not a teccie and, altho I have spent some time reading posts, much of it goes over my head.

    I have a GPSMap 3010c marine chartplotter which uses Bluecharts G2 which are on a Garmin proprietary data card. I want charts for a new cruising area and I have been told that they have been discontinued and the local dealers no longer have any in stock.

    I have a blank data card and I think I can get hold of a data card reader with a USB connector. Is there any way I can download or buy the charts on the later SD card format and transfer it to the blank one in a format that my plotter will recognise? Or, maybe if I can find one, can I borrow the card I want and copy it

    The charts I want are the EU800 one which cover Scandinavia.

    I know thank you posts are not allowed so let me do this in advance

    I think you can use unlocked g2 charts but [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    is more than 2gb-
    You can find smaller charts, look at this catalogue [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    it's a bit old and some map are no more sold and new ones have been released, but most of them are the same.
    And read this thread too:
