Help! When I tried to get the Bahamas
datacard for our trusty Garmin
GPSMap 176C, I was informed that Garmin
has discontinued our electronic charting system.
Now supposedly we have to buy an entirely new chartplotter
or whatever to get the Bahamas charts
? NOT! I'm not buying
a new laptop
(that was also a suggestion I'm on a MacBook Pro with Nobeltec
8.1 on bootcamp/Windows XP). Everything worked well enough to get us from SW Florida
all the way to Cartagena
and back over six years.
Now we want to go to the Bahamas and can't buy Garmin Bluecharts to fit our GPS
? Unacceptable. We can always go back to the "old" way and use the Explorer Chartbooks which we just bought and a handheld GPS
with waypoints we use from the Explorer Charts
But we've gotten accustomed to this little Garmin GPSMap 176C and know how it works.
I know it was a popular GPS in it's time, sold lots. So is there any chance anyone has the Bahamas (especially the Exumas) DataCard for a Garmin GPSMap 176C that they might want to sell?
Anybody??? Let us know please. THANKS!
