Unfortunately, Garmin Chart Plotters will not read charts in any but their proprietary format. You may yet be able to find older Blue Chart CD's that will work with the unit (you load the maps to a Garmin Chip via their card-reader) but you will need an unlock code for the chart-set you're trying to up-load to the chip or that won't work either. Garmin is very protective of their products--particularly chart sets.
