Garmin International is pleased to announce the next generation in marine handhelds: the GPSMAP 78 series. Incorporating a sleek, new design and must-have features, these rugged units are a great fit in Garmins best-selling lineup of color marine handhelds and they float!
Featuring a bright 2.6-inch LCD color display with built-in basemap and high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix, the GPSMAP 78 series takes recreational navigation to a new level. All three models are waterproof, include a built-in microSD card slot for loading additional maps and have a dedicated MOB (man over board) button. In addition to the standard feature set on the GPSMAP 78, the 78s version adds a 3-axis compass, a barometric altimeter and a world wide shaded relief basemap. The 78sc model includes the sensors, plus it comes preloaded with coastal charts for the United States including Alaska, Hawaii and Explorer Chart data for the Bahamas. Sensor versions (78s and 78sc) also offer wireless route and waypoint sharing with other compatible units.
All three units support Garmin Custom Maps and BirdsEye Satellite Imagery. Garmin Custom Maps is a free and simple process that
transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your compatible Garmin GPS. BirdsEye Satellite Imagery is a
subscription-based service that allows you to see aerial views of your destination.
If youre looking for the ultimate high-performance marine handheld, take your pick from the GPSMAP 78 series.
