FAQs - For Garmin Supplied "Ireland Inland Waterways - Shannon Navigation" products

Where do I get Garmin's Shannon Chart coverage

Garmin have now launched the Shannon charts as a standalone chart product and are available from the Garmin web site or from Garmin marine dealer outlets. If ordering from the Garmin web site you may choose either a download version or order the charts on SD or MicroSD cards. If you have any queries please direct them to Garmin.


Shannon Coverage is now included in the preloaded marine basemap of marine chart plotter models such as GpsMap 451, 551, 556 and 750

Please note
While every effort has been made, it is not possible to guarantee the accuracy of any information provided on this web site or on the charts. The "Ireland Shannon" chart project has been carried out by volunteers and an immense number of man hours over many years both on the water, land, in cars, ribs, cruisers and 'burning much midnight oil' working on computers.
