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

With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFixTM satellite prediction, GPSMAP 78 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.

Adding charts is easy with Garmin's detailed marine, topographic and road maps, available on microSD card. Conveniently plug in BlueChart® g3 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 water resistant battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet. GPSMAP 78 also supports BirdsEyeTM 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.
