Transfering Electronic Chart to GARMIN 182

Hi all. Looking for the best way to get a chart onto my GARMIN 182C. I have the 182 GPS and Charter and it has been one of the best things I have ever purchased for my boat. It has a chip for the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay area that I use every time I'm out there. But as I prepare (early) for the "NYC BW trip" I realized I did not have a chip with NOAA Chart 12335 which I believe covers the NYC area.
Where is the best place to get that chip with that chart and cost?
Am I better off just printing a paper book chart from NOAA?
Is there anyone out there that has a chip they can copy?
I have a Marine Data Management Kit from Garmin--not sure what to do with it--and a AC adapter, seems to have a 16MB chip, a Marine trip and Waypoint Manager CD, guess [I] should call them. I was hoping for a quick response from someone who would know. Totally never done it. Thnaks in Advance, Henry

Just to update...Fee said he would look for a chip from his old 172 he dosn't use any more,and SC said some stuff about how to use the CD and make the chip on a blank using the Marine Data Management Kit from Garmin.....
Also, I did speak to Garmin today and they also talked anout either a BLuechart chip (Garmin has different kinds for different electronics) or the CD rom and making a chip
I am sure others have different ways...
Bookcharts, NOAA...Paper charts...Thanks everyone for all the good info...Free email me when you find that chip, thanks, Henry

Sorry Henry but the chip I have in the 178 goes from southern NJ to South Carolina.
