Garmin GPSMAP 78s Marine Handheld GPS Plotter - The rugged GPSMAP 78s features crisp colour mapping, a high-sensitivity receiver, moulded rubber side grips, plus a microSD™ card slot for loading additional maps. And it floats! Featuring a bright 2.6-inch LCD display with built in basemap and high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver with HotFix™ satellite prediction, the GPSMAP 78s locates & displays your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and built-up areas. It has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions. The unit also has a dedicated MOB (man over board) button.

Product Questions

Can I ask what marine maps this comes with? I need charts for then South of England and Northern France if possible.

There is a base map pre-installed but this will simply be an outline of the coast.  You will need to purchase Garmin Bluecharts for th area/s you need.  You can find a full list of available areas on page 50 of our 2018 catalogue or via our website.

The EU456S chart, for instance, covering Wetmouth to Ramsgate inc Channel Islands and most of the Northern coast of France is £174.95.
