Garmin 168 Sounder

I just bought a Garmin 168 for 100 EC at a local cruiser sale and everything works on it. Are you able to buy maps for different areas and load them into the system.

What name should I look for? and what are the best to get? Are they chips that you put into the device?

I'm in Grenada and would be interested in maps of the area.

What is needed for upgrade for Garmin 168

For the Garmin 168 you need a serial to USB converter cable/adaptor. "Keystone" brand for me has been the most versatile. "Bluechart Americas" is the cd-rom/software for that area.
