Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

If you have Maine POIS and charts, that means you have the north american maps loaded. What you need is the Garmin BlueChart G2 canadian map / charts. ( not G2 vision or G2 HD )

You can get the pre loaded Canadian SD card here,

Once inserted you would just restart your device and then go into settings, map info and select the new canadian Maps~

The Amazon link I sent you will save you 56$ over the cost of the same exact card / map from Garmins website

If you have further questions, let me know.

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a 5 star rating clicked and submitted when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.
