New Marine Handhelds From Garmin

by diane 2010-04-23 13:03

Garmin custom maps and BirdsEye imagery will be supported by three new color marine handhelds, the 78, 78s and 78sc. The “s” models include user profiles, a tri-axial compass and wireless exchange of data between units. The flagship 78sc includes pre-loaded cartography for the coastal US. And like the 76 series, they float!
The GPSMAP® 78sc, GPSMAP 78s and the GPSMAP 78 are the newest of Garmin’s next generation marine-friendly GPS handhelds that feature a new contemporary industrial design with rubber side grips that’s ideal for navigating the great outdoors. Garmin’s flagship model – the GPSMAP 78sc – also adds new high-end features like a 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, wireless data transfer between compatible units and preloaded cartography for the coastal United States. The GPSMAP 78 series updates the look and feel of their popular predecessors, while retaining the ruggedness and durability that mariners have come to know and appreciate from the GPSMAP series. These rugged new handhelds represent a leap forward with features that make navigation easier. Each unit in the GPSMAP 78 series is easier than ever to read and use in all conditions. Like earlier GPSMAP generations, these new handhelds will keep the same soft-key user interface and overall sleek, easy-to-use design – including in a rugged and waterproof housing that floats. Other key upgrades to the GPSMAP 78sc and GPSMAP 78s include user-defined profiles and a 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows where you’re heading even when you’re standing still. The new GPSMAP 78sc and 78s also support wireless exchange of tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches with compatible Oregon®, DakotaTM , Colorado® and Foretrex® devices. Weighing 7.7 ounces, the new GPSMAP 78 models last up to 20 hours on two AA batteries. Each device has a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFixTM, which automatically calculates and stores critical satellite information and can use that information to quickly calculate a position. The new GPSMAP 78 models have 1.7 GB of internal memory and a microSDTM card slot for optional map data. With these units, you can store up to 2,000 waypoints, 200 routes and a tracklog of up to 10,000 points and 200 saved tracks. A built-in worldwide shaded relief basemap comes preloaded on each new 78 series handheld and the GPSMAP 78sc adds BlueChart g2 cartography for the coastal U.S.
