Garmin Blue Chart G2 Vision

I purchased the Explorer Chart book for the Near Bahamas, but would also like Digital Explorer charts for my Garmin Chart plotter. It would appear I'm locked into Garmin Blue Chart G2 vision, but would prefer to hear some feedback from others using this package before making the purchase. What do you think of the product? Other than the charts, do you use the other features..tides, different views, bottom contours, etc?

Thanks, Bill

Garmins chip is fantastic

Garmin uses the Explorer charts. We just returned from the Exumas and used, the Explorer charts, the Garminchip and the newest Navionics chip. By far the garmin chip was superior to he Navionics chip. It is pretty much identical to the explorer charts. If some tight anchorages there was even a course line right to where your anchor.
