Garmin GPSMAP 78s - (010-00864-01)

For boaters and watersports enthusiasts who want to run with the best, the rugged Garmin GPSMAP 78s features a 3-axis compass, barometric altimeter, crisp colour mapping, high-sensitivity receiver, new moulded rubber side grips, plus a microSD™ card slot for loading additional maps. And it floats! !

Garmin GPSMAP 78s comes with built-in worldwide basemap, so you can navigate anywhere with ease. And, like the rest of the Garmin GPSMAP 78-series, Garmin GPSMAP 78s is IPX7 waterproof and even floats in water.

Get Your Bearings
Garmin GPSMAP 78s has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

Share Wirelessly
With Garmin GPSMAP 78s you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible device users. Now you can send the location of your favourite fishing spot to a friend to find. Sharing data is easy. Just press “send” to transfer your information to similar units.

Keep Your Fix
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix™ satellite prediction, Garmin GPSMAP 78s locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and built-up areas. The advantage is clear — whether you’re in dense woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Garmin GPSMAP 78s to help you find your way when you need it the most.

Add Maps
Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed marine, topographic and road maps, available on microSD card. Conveniently plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator NT® map data for turn-by-turn routing by road (see maps tab for compatible maps). The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet.

Garmin GPSMAP 78s supports BirdsEye™ Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. In addition, the Garmin GPSMAP 78s is compatible with Custom Maps, free Garmin software that transforms your own paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your GPS handheld device.

Garmin Connect™
With a simple connection to your computer and to the Internet, you can get a detailed analysis of your activities and send tracks to your outdoor device using Garmin Connect™. This one-stop site offers an activity table and allows you to view your activities on a map using Google™ Earth. Explore other routes uploaded by millions of other Garmin Connect users and share your experiences on Twitter® and Facebook®. Getting started is easy, so get out there, explore, and share.

Try Geocaching
Garmin GPSMAP 78s supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. Garmin GPSMAP 78s stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. Slim and lightweight, Garmin GPSMAP 78s is the perfect companion for all your outdoor pursuits.
