  • Features

    When you’re on the water, the GPSMAP 78s will help improve your performance. It gives
    you a 3-axis compass, barometric altimeter, color mapping and a high-sensitivity GPS
    receiver, along with rubber side grips and a microSD card slot for loading additional
    maps. And it floats, too.

    Become an explorer

    With the built-in worldwide basemap, you can go anywhere you need to go. And, the
    GPSMAP 78s is IPX7 waterproof.

    All the data you need

    The GPSMAP 78s will always tell you exactly where you are. It is equipped with a
    3-axis tilt-compensated compass, which always shows your heading even if you aren’t
    standing still or holding it level. And the barometric altimeter uses pressure
    changes to give you your precise altitude. You can use it to plot barometric pressure
    over time, which helps you anticipate weather changes.

    Go social

    Your GPSMAP 78s allows you to share waypoints, tracks, geocaches and routes
    wirelessly with other compatible Garmin devices. Just press “send” to transfer your
    information to your friends.

    Know where you are

    GPSMAP 78s has a high-sensitivity WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite
    prediction to determine your location quickly and accurately, no matter your
    surrounding terrain.

    Customize your maps

    With Garmin’s collection of detailed topographic, marine and road maps, available on
    a microSD card you can easily add and customize your maps. If you’re hitting the
    water, just insert BlueChart g2 preloaded cards. And if you’re preparing for a road
    trip, City Navigator NT map data provides turn-by-turn directions. GPSMAP 78s
    supports subscription-based BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, which integrates satellite
    images with your maps. And, GPSMAP 78s is compatible with the free software Custom
    Maps, which transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable files.

    All your data in one place

    With a connection to your computer and the internet, you can get detailed analysis of
    your activities, and send tracks to your outdoor device with Garmin Connect. You’ll
    get activity tables and a chance to see your activities on a Google Earth map. You
    can explore routes uploaded by millions of Garmin Connect users, and share your
    experience on Twitter and Facebook.

    A geocacher’s dream

    Your GPSMAP 78s can download geocaching GPX files. Your device stores and displays
    key details, including terrain, location, difficulty, hints and descriptions. You
    won’t need any more printouts or manually-entered coordinates.  Just upload the GPX
    file to your unit and start hunting.
