Bluechart G2 Charts - Loch Lomond?

Hi,

Does anyone know if the Bluechart G2 charts preloaded onto the Garmin 451S cover Loch Lomond?

Thanks
Graham

Is that maybe because it's not a sea loch?

only a bit cheeky

it did annoy me last year as I rang up before doing the update to check about Loch Lomond and the new channel marks out to Caernarfon Bar, I was assure both were on the update so i went ahead and got the update, guess what after numerous phone calls I gave up, had better things to worry about last year

I have checked the Caernarfon bar this year and that is on the update, but forgot to check Loch Lomond as I don't think I'll be able to do that trip this year, mores the pity, but hopefully I'll be making up for it in 2014

There is a good paper chart for Loch Lomond now, which should be good enough for most people, and it's a good reason for supping the good stuff of an eveining while your planning the next days cruising
