Garmin - Please help me understand.

  • Summary: Instead of paying $300 for this device I plan to use a smartphone app, and an iPhone charger ready for backup (today's are capable of recharging a phone up to four times). That along with a waterproof case I'll be good to go for coastal navigation on a small boat here in Tampa.

  • Summary: I use a suction cup RAM mount on my standup paddleboard so that I can easily monitor my average speed and distance and my heart rate while I workout on my board. I can read the screen easily, even on sunny days.

Disapointed

Thomas A Bizzell, Amazon

  • Summary: Well I ordered this unit to replace my few year old Legend HCx when I found out that map updates were no longer available for the unit. I received it in the mail today, and I'm disappointed that the inland maps have little detail.

GPSMAP Model 78 a loser

Howard Conrad, Amazon
13 June 2015
  • Summary: Tried this GPS out. Long time Garmin user auto, marine and hand held. The model 78 and 78sc is a truly terrible device. The screen resolution is bad, the maps detail even zoomed in is deficient.

The triaxial compass makes a real nice difference compared to the 76

A. Marcinkowski "A Dad", Amazon
2 June 2015
  • Summary: I've owned the 76s and the 60csx. The first thing I noticed with the 78 is the lack of a decent manual, even online. Thankfully, most of it can be figured out. The triaxial compass makes a real nice difference compared to the 76.
