Garmin Bluechart Americas

I am shortly off for two weeks to the caribbean. Sailing around St. Vincent and would like to take Garmin Bluecharts for my handheld GPSmap 76cx. Cant seem to get anyone to supply them, have emailed several internet companies, but as usual in the boating industry they dont bother to reply.

Any suggestions, anybody?

Doug.

Mmmmm interesting. I got my Blue Chart Americas from Expansys.co.uk but they don't seem to be showing it now!

I found this lot.... but don't know anything about them!

Try at own risk!

Enjoy St Vincent!

Thanks, I never got a reply from any UK company!!! So used Boatfix, replied to my emails almost by return. Delivery took 10 days, and at 50 less than half the Uk cost. A good result, had too pay 10 VAt and 8 handling even so half the UK cost.

Garmin were no help they suggested Marine superstore, they didnt reply to any emails either!
