I hope this is not too far off topic. I am considering the Garmin 168. Does anyone know if it has enough memory to download central Florida data? Does anyone know how detailed the data is for the St. Johns River area? Also, how difficult is it to choose data from cd and get it into the unit? Any thoughts would be welcome. I need to make decision soon. Thanks. Mark

I have the 168 Garmin with a external

The area I unlocked does not include St.
There is more information on the Garmin
168 and 162 in the general section.
Triblet has the 162 Garmin on his montauk.
His info has been a great deal of help
If I were you I would get the 168 with
the internal Antenna.

Thanks for the info. Is the info easy to transfer from the new blue cd imported into the 168? Was there enough memory to download the Tampa Bay info? Also, is it a big improvement from the old cd? Thanks. Mark

difficult.And yes,Triblet was right it is
much better than the old Cd.

I have a 162 with an internal ant and absolutely love it. The BlueChart is much better than the US Waterways and Lights. Great machine and now great software.
