Garmin GPSmap 78

Product description Garmin GPSmap 78

GPSmap 78 is a major update of Garmin to its line of water sports trackers. With the use of the unit, user profiles are loaded as well as data exchange between them. Its configuration has a barometric altimeter and a coaxial compass. Its dimensions are 2.6 ´´wide, 6.0´´ high and 1.2 ´´deep.

The resolution of the screen is 160 x 240 pixels with dimensions of 1.6 x 2.2 ´´. The monitor shows brightness with adequate visibility, even when the day is sunny. The equipment has water resistance and the ability to float when submerged in the sea.

The unit is not tactile so it requires buttons to go forward or backward on the maps during the sequence. This model is lightweight and reaches 7 ounces in weight. If you want to find a specific site within a trail map located on the Internet, add it to your GPS. In your memory, you will store 2,000 reference points, 200 routes as well as active tracking of 10,000 points and 200 tracks.

For boaters and watersports enthusiasts who want to run with the best, the rugged GPSMAP 78 features crisp color mapping, high-sensitivity receiver, new molded rubber side grips, plus a microSD™ card slot for loading additional maps. And it floats!


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

Keep Your Fix

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

Add Maps

Adding more maps is easy with Garmins 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 on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you dont have to worry about getting it wet. GPSMAP 78 also supports BirdsEye™ Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. In addition, the 78 is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.

Pros and cons


Very good product, the bad is the map that comes standard, very incomplete. You have to add a map and the price goes much higher. As for sending a 10, in the term that went on the web.
