 The cartography contained on chart cards is always used in

Radar operation
 The G-Series system supports the use of 2 radar scanners at
  the same time.
 An E-Series Widescreen display in a G-Series system can
  operate 1 scanner at any one time. To use the second scanner
  you must select it in the Radar application's Setup Menu. This
  does not automatically power down the first scanner. When 2
  scanners are connected you can power-down the second scanner
  at any time using the radar power controls, accessible from the
  display's power button.
 The rotating scanner icon in the status bar indicates the status of
  all connected scanners, not just the currently selected scanner.
  Similarly, if you have a G-Series Compact keyboard connected to
  an E-Series Widescreen display the radar status LED located on
  the keyboard reflects the status of ALL scanners.

3.4 SeaTalkhs network
The SeaTalkhs network allows you to connect compatible displays and other digital devices.
SeaTalkhs can be used with E-Series Widescreen to:
 Create a network of up to 5 E-Series Widescreen displays.
 Connect a digital radar scanner.
 Connect a digital sounder (DSM).
 Note: A network containing more than a single connection will
 require a SeaTalkhs switch. This is a hub used for connection
 of multiple devices.

Radar connection
The display is compatible with Raymarine digital radar scanners.
The scanner is connected using a SeaTalkhs cable.
The digital radar is usually connected via a SeaTalkhs switch. On
smaller systems (with only one display and no other digital devices)
the radar may be connected using a crossover coupler.

Some setting up is required to enable integration of Autopilot, AIS
and Navtex equipment connected as part of your system.
1. Check the system integration settings.
   i. Access the Menu > System Setup > System Integration
        menu
   ii. Autopilot control. This option should be Enabled if you wish
        to control a compatible autopilot using the display.
   iii. NMEA port settings. These should be set appropriately for
        the connected devices.
   iv. Bridge NMEA heading. This should be set ON only if the
        display is used as a source of heading data for other devices
        connected on SeaTalk or SeaTalkng.
2. Check the display presentation settings.
   The AIS presentation layer must be turned ON in order to display
   targets.
   i. Select the 2D Chart Layers from the chart window
   ii. Select AIS Targets On or Off as appropriate.
Further changes to the system set up can be made as required,
however most other equipment will operate to a default level without
further configuration.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
