Don't know Garmin specifically, but many systems are likely similar.

Our Furuno chartplotter does not incorporate ActiveCaptain data. I would not expect Furuno to update the NAVNet 3D that we have just for AC data... given our MFD is already one generation older.

MaxSea TimeZero on our laptop -- essentially the same software engine thsat drives the plotter -- does incorporate AC data.

Updating charts and software on our plotter are pretty much the same: get the new stuff on an SD card and then cycle through the new files (charts) or set-up (new software) routines.

Would guess tgat most of all that is similar with Garmin and Garmin-compatible hardware.

Plan2Nav on our Android tablet does incorporate AC data... and since it uses C-Map (Jeppesen) charts, it also seems to have some of the marina data C-Map offers/offered. (Not yet sure about that; limited experience so far.)
