A functional but arachaic piece of history.

ulithiman, Ebay
5 October 2012
  • Summary: A functional but archaic piece of history in excellent shape. Purchased as a back-up GPS for nautical use. It's the best of show for its time era. I would buy this again, though it is not intended to be my front-line nav system.

  • Summary: Its a very good GPS.. Works fine and its really worth for the price. I recommend it if you looking for a small gps that you can use in your boat without spending hundreds of dollars in bigger units. Easy to use and easy to load maps..

  • Summary: I have had a Garmin 76 for many years! the last one got me in and out of some crazy places much faster and simpler than large chartplotters... easy to carry, mount, and its not so expensive that I would be upset if it were lost at sea, or stolen.

  • Summary: Does what it says but buyer should be mindful that this unit is no longer sold nor is Mapsource supported by Garmin. That said it is a very versatile unit and a good value.

  • Summary: I disagree with previous reviewers, because it is possible to load my own data into the GARMIN GPSmap 76CS. I have used the DNR Garmin extension (V 5.4.1) "Downloaded for free" for this purpose and loaded my own shapefiles into the GPS. Also, I don’t forget to mention other tools, which may help to convert various formats to shapefiles such as the interoperability extension in ArcMap and additional formats in the GPSBabel tool.

Jack Mayoh, Trailspace.com

  • Summary: I have been using a Lowrance Global Nav 212 for eight years and just got the 76CS. As the previous reviewer stated, you can only load Garmin maps into this unit but I don't know of any handheld unit which allows you to load maps other than that brand's maps. You have to use a laptop with a gps connected to do that. Not convenient for boating or hunting. The 76CS has a bright colorful display, very good battery life, and more features than you will believe. Buy it.

  • Summary: I am a professional forester. I am disappointed with the product because I cannot load my own maps into the unit, a feature that would be extremely useful in forestry. Garmin will only allow their own maps to be uploaded.

Alles in allem nettes Spielzeug mit allen wesentlichen Funktionen zur Navig

heidrunmeister, eBay.de
12 June 2012
  • Summary: Ältere Geräteserie mit Farbgrafik und hoher Genauigkeit der Positionsbestimmung. Mit der Bedienung der vielen Funktionen kommt man nach kurzer Zeit (1-2h) auch ohne Zuhilfenahme des Handbuchs gut zurecht. Die Zugehörige PC-Software war etwas aufwändig von der Installation, funktioniert dann aber auch recht intuitiv. Habe das Gerät zum Geocachen angeschafft, dafür erfüllt es alle Anforderungen zum speichern der Navgationspunkte.

  • Excerpt: Non è ancora perfetto questo garmin, ma fa delle cose decisamente superiori ai gps normalmente in commercio ed ha un prezzo accessibile. A differenza di molti GPS questo si puo' utilizzre in macchina e all'esterno (io lo uso per il trekking nei boschi) e ...
  • Pros: quasi perfetto
