New marine handhelds hit the scene


GPSMAP78sc_HR_306.1Today Garmin announced its next generation of marine-friendly GPS handhelds – the GPSMAP 78 series – which includes the GPSMAP 78, 78s and the 78sc. Ideal for boaters and watersports enthusiasts alike, these powerful units feature color mapping, a high-sensitivity GPS receiver and a built-in Micro SD card slot for loading additional maps. Add maps from Garmin’s wide array of detailed marine BlueChart g2, topographic and City Navigator road maps. Plus, the 78 series supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, and is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.

Like earlier generations, these new handhelds feature the same soft-key interface and overall sleek, easy-to-use design, but will boast a new sleek industrial design with rubber side grips. The “s” models also add a 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass which shows your heading even when you’re standing still. Each unit features a worldwide basemap, and the 78sc comes with built-in BlueChart g2 coastal charts for the U.S. And with the 78 series, you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible devices.

So whether you’re kayaking, fishing or just cruising around, the 78 series has everything a mariner needs!
