Certainly is on the 500 series - you just zoom out loads of times with the - button to like a 20 or 50 mile range, pan the cursor with the rocker arrow buttons till it is sitting over a suitable bit of water, after a second or two it will automatically re-centre the map over where the cursor is, then use + button to zoom back in again to say a 0.2 mile range you should see all the depths at that.
The manual for mine covers the 400 series as well so I would think they are the same. I zoomed out from here and looked at charts around England with no bother
