Garmin 451 start up issue

I have wired up my plotter and got it working with my VHF but I'm having a problem with the plotter on start up.


When I turn it on it starts up fine, loads maps then goes to the Menu, no problem there, BUT when I try and start it with the genuine Garmin G2 Vision card installed it won't load past the startup screen, I have to pop card in after startup. A small issue I know but a PITA all the same.

Any ideas?

How long are you giving it to startup with the chart card in? My handheld takes a while to startup when the marine chart is enabled, as it has to load it into memory & takes a good minute to load.

Might be worth checking if there's a software update for the unit as well.

You might be on to something chief, there have been 9 updates since my unit was last updated.
