    Default Garmin GPSMAP 8212 Chart names

    Hi. Does anyone know if the Garmin GPSMAP 8212 (Marine Unit) can read charts images with any name rather than the usual gmapsupp.img name ?

    For examples.... if I have a chart file/img on the SD card that has the name "VUS512L2014.4v1600.img", will the GPS unit be able to recognize it, or will it have to be named gmapsupp.img?

    Thanks.

    Probably no, Bluechart sd for Marine units are sold one per Sd and sd structure is: sd/Garmin/gmapsupp.img
