BLUECHART PACIFIC V9.5 CDROM
New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Asia East
cartography is designed to provide navigators with innovative
object-oriented cartography; descriptive details for features
typically found on nautical charts can easily be viewed with a
simple keypress, and cursor movements over the chart provide descriptions
for contour depths, chart number, navaid name, and much more.
displayed on a GARMIN chartplotter, BlueChart offers its users
a paper chart-like appearance. This data includes shaded depth
contours, inter-tidal zones, spot soundings, wrecks, navaids,
port plans, restricted areas, cable areas, anchorages and more.
BlueChart also includes chart numbers, name, scales, revision
dates and Notice to Mariner dates.
is designed to provide interactive viewing of detailed nautical
chart data, and complements GARMIN's new line of handheld mapping
products and marine chartplotters. BlueChart Marine Cartography
is available in two formats: on MapSource CDROM and also on preprogrammed
data cards. The CD provides the same detailed, object-oriented
cartography as the preprogrammed
GPS models that load map detail into internal memory require use
of the CDROM product; models that use data cards for storage of
map detail can utilise either format.
Nautical detail contained on each BlueChart CD-ROM is broken into
separate regions which must be unlocked prior to use. With the
purchase of a MapSource BlueChart CD, a single Unlock Certificate
is included. Users will have access to one region of their choice;
the region to be unlocked is selected when you visit the GARMIN
unlock web pages at www.garmin.com/unlock.
Unlock codes for other regions may be purchased and unlocked separately.

offer limited support of BlueChart.
Q. Exactly what does 'limited support
of BlueChart" mean?
A. (from GARMIN Cartography): "Limited capability" may
mean that a unit may be able to draw all the map features from
the MapSource software, such as roads, lakes, nav-aids, depth
contours, wrecks, etc., but the interactive capability of the
maps may be limited. For example, you may not be able to "find
nearest marinas" or look up additional text about a specific
