    When you’re on the water, the GPSMAP 78 will help improve your performance. It gives
    you crisp, 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 78 is IPX7 waterproof.

    Know where you are
    GPSMAP 78 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 GPSMAP 78’s 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
    78 supports subscription-based BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, which integrates satellite
    images with your maps. And, GPSMAP 78 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 78 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.
