Product: Garmin BlueChart g2 and g2 Vision v2009
Brand: Garmin
Description: Affected products are all 2009 versions of BlueChart g2 in Garmin card format, BlueChart g2 in microSD/SD card format and BlueChart g2 Vision in microSD/SD card format, purchased between 8 April 2009 and June 3 2009. The hardware or firmware of the Garmin unit is not affected. No other models of cards are affected. Affected cards can be identified in one of the following ways: (1) The exterior packaging is a paperboard envelope such as the ones shown in the attached photos. (2) BlueChart g2 Vision cards will be one of the part numbers listed in the
attached and have a MAR 09 release date on it. 3) BlueChart g2 cards will be one of the part
numbers listed in the attached and have a description that begins with the letter H or HX (example: HXUS039R). Note that whilst the majority of cards sold in Europe are programmed in the UK, the cards are, however, also programmed in other countries.
Code: The affected data cards have been sold between April 8, 2009 and June 3, 2009.
Risk: Garmin has identified that, in certain waters, there are inaccuracies and/or omissions in the way that the BlueChart g2 and BlueChart g2 Vision v2009 cards present depth contours and depth areas which could result in the depiction of water depth as deeper than the actual depth under certain display conditions. As such, there is a possibility of boats going a ground. If a boat were to go aground, there is a possibility of the boat suffering damage. Depending on the circumstances (for example, speed of the boat and type of terrain on the seabed) it is possible that
there may be a risk of injury to persons. Garmin has only been made aware of reports of inaccuracies in depth contours/depth areas in certain waters along the coast of Sweden and Denmark. Any potential risk associated with this issue is considered to be greater in Sweden and Denmark given the particular nature of the coastal waters surrounding these countries. However, out of an abundance of caution, Garmin is taking the voluntary action described below.
