So has "a friend of a friend" of any of us had any success making a backup copy using this method (Ghost)? I'd feel much happier knowing that my valuable data was secure

I thought that Navionics basically locked the charts to the MMC card? There is a hard coded unique ID on the card and whilst you can copy the card contents (via ghost or otherwise), my understanding is that the maps will not actually work unless they find the correct MMC card ID.

So if the original card fails, you're basically gubbed even if you have a backup.
