Excellant product

briacosc, Ebay
8 February 2014
  • Summary: It is one of the better models produced by Garmin for marine use. They are no longer being made and have been replaced by the 78xxx model. Its a matter of personal preference but I prefer the old 76 and 76S model, the new 78 model is less user friendly and has a bunch of unnecessary bells and whistles. The 76 model comes with either land based or marine based map, make sure you find out which it has before you buy as it can have only one or the other.

Solid unit. Could use a performance upgrade, and USB port.

rumptz68, Ebay
7 July 2012
  • Summary: Great unit. Black & white screen is easier to read than color. Garmin stripped out some functionality in the newer 78 units making me auction it and find a refurbished 76. Serial port interface makes it harder to interface with map data.

I work at sea and this is my back up gps, highly recommended.

  • Summary: One of the most reliable gps in the market. This is probably the work horse of Garmin. Hope they keep updates for them. I had one of these and I use it out at sea almost every day for the last 8 years, never had a problem. This unit will work as a back up. Highly recommended.

Good basic GPS for paragliding

usb47, Ebay
2 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this for my husband, a long time paraglider pilot. This model is the gps standard for several competitive paragliding leagues <or so he said>. Everything was as he wanted until he saw the color display on another pilot's 76cs. We ended up finding a 76csx here on eBay a few weeks later. That model has a mini-usb port in addition to the antique serial interface (76s and 76cs are serial only).

The Garmin 62s is great for navigating the outdoors.…

  • Summary: The Garmin 62s is great for navigating the outdoors. It works far better than the my previous Garmin 76s which would lose its signal under the canopy of the trees. The 62s is very powerful, capable of pulling in a signal even when confined to my office. Outside it has no problems at all locating satellites exceptionally fast. The controls are very simple and user friendly, yet does a variety of necessary functions.

GPSMAP 76, Installed Memory?

ser_tihan, Ebay
15 February 2011
  • Summary: Hi! received a Garmin GPSMAP 76 Waterproof Handheld GPS Retseiver. Along the lines of all content. Quality of goods and equipment appropriate application. Except for one - Installed Memory, in the description of the goods specified 24 MB, but, in fact, has a smaller volume. Why in the product description mentioned anymore, I do not understand ... Maybe I did something messed up? I would be grateful if the seller explain to me why this happened. Best regards, Sergey.

Garmin GPSMAP 76S handheld GPS receiver

rdurbin50, Ebay
16 September 2010
  • Summary: A great, no-frills, capable unit, with compass and barometric altimeter built in. It floats unharmed if you drop it in a creek. I'll generally use it (and a much used, trouble free, identical unit) for mapping private lands and leases. The "push button" interface is much more convenient and consistent for navigating the menus under field condition. All the menus are easily displayed and accessed, making changes and updates to waypoints, tracks, and routes a snap.
