As we journey south from San Diego
, we're having fun using our new Garmin
. However, as we sailed south of Punta Santo Tomas, we noticed that the Rocas Soledad, located at 31 degrees 33.1 minutes north, 116 degrees 43.3 minutes west do not show up on the Garmin
BlueChart. We tried all scale levels and they just aren't shown. These rocks are always above the surface and are about 1.5 miles off shore. The passage
between the shore and the rocks is clear. Our other chartplotter
uses CMap and it does show Rocas Soledad.
Have others found blatant omissions on electronic charts
? I'm certain that Garmin has somewhere in their fine print that they're freed from any liability but these rocks are only about 80 miles south of San Diego
. We transitted them in the day but if someone were making the passage
at night it could be a problem without radar
It's kind of shaken my confidence in electronic charts
. Does anyone else feel this way?
Fair winds and calm seas.
