Is there a software upgrade for my 997 SI that will show me the tides at my location?

I found how to show tides on my 997 C, thanks to the Humminbird techs.
It requires a Navionics Platinum card, or some other compatible card with coastal features. My older Premium card won't work, because it is for inland lakes.
I went to Chart/Details, and switched the view to underwater.
Now, when I have my chart on the screen, I hit the info button on my unit, and, presto, the closest tide station shows with the current tide!

What would be the comparable lake master card? I would like to see the tides as well when I'm out fishing.... On a side note is one company better than the other? (Navionics or lakemaster)

I was able to learn how to see the tides on my 997C by asking the chat people on the Humminbird site, who told me how to do it with my Navionics Platinum chip.
The tides are seen through the mapping chip.
It takes a chip with ocean/coastal mapping, so the tides are included.
I would go to the Humminbird site, and ask about the Lake Master chip.
