I wanted to inform everyone of the most recent G2 software undate which is Version 3.5. I was told that Garmin will be coming out with another map update later this spring or early summer.

Can you clarify a bit.
Are you saying there is a new update of Garmin charts that have more features than G2 vision?
Or are you saying there is a universal firmware update to all GPS units that use G2 (and G2 vision) charts?

It will bring the charts up to date with the latest Notice to Mariners.

I was about to buy a Garmin 440 which comes with a G2 coastal chip. Does anyone know the cost of the update?
And how will I know if a new unit I buy down the road has the latest chip?
Thanks for any info:-)

It will update the G2 series of charts not the G2 vision series. What you do when the charts come out is place an order for G2 chart update. Send garmin a deposit for $199.00 then they send you a Data Card with the updated software, you install the software send the card back to Garmin and they credit you back 129.00. Net cost of update is $70.00. I will most likily wait until these update comes out and split the cost of the update between several friends.
The rep at Garmin said the new Chartography and updates is much nicer amd is compatable with the older Garmin units. From my understanding the larger screen units that Garmin sell still use the G2 series of charts hence the continued support.
