    Normally up to 2 GB? There's not many BlueChart g2 that are close to 2 GB. Specially not the Small regions.
    On the other hand there's many BlueChart g2 Vision charts that are over 2 GB in file size, booth Large and Regular regions.

    on a related matter, i always wondered if map detail of selecting many small areas had the same detail level as selecting the single larger area that covered the same geographic locations. ...without knowing, i've always just selected all relevant map areas even though they overlapped and counted against my total allowable number of maps (unit has the 2025 map limit)
