If you encounter a thunderstorm or slip into a stream, do not panic – the receiver is housed in a strong, waterproof case. This is my first 12 channel receiver and I am quite impressed with the reception I get even with out an extra antenna. But for now, I don’t think there is anythings on the market, yet, that can outperform this unit. The microSD card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment. Trending Price New. The sun-moon feature is great.

Users can load map data garmon transfer routes and waypoints through the unit’s fast USB connection. The antenna which gives you extra gain is not needed separate purchase as the unit is very accurate without it. Software has been upgraded quite a bit. Coming into Bodega Bay from the ocean in my boat, in dense fog, I was able to skirt garmij some dangerous rocks and steer directly into the harbor.

The sun-moon feature is great. LED backlit display and keypad. If you encounter a thunderstorm or slip into a stream, do not panic – the receiver is housed in a strong, waterproof case. But if flexibility with mapping vendors is important, you may want to consider something else.

These units are now obsoleteand the maker refuses to support them anymoreIf you want to use one you have to find a good used one.
While still sufficient for basic navigation, it is a bit disconcerting. Large-numbers option for easy viewing; dual-position display mode. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used.

I haven’t been disappointed. You can also store additional maps and any other excursion data on the MB removable microSD card that comes with the device.
The micro sd card is nice, but unless you are going on very very long trips, the 76cs or 60cs will hold lots of data. This appears to work well.
The gsmap GPS receiver tracks your location via satellite in a matter of seconds; even in challenging areas like a dense tree-covered environment, a rugged terrain, or in deep valleys. People who bought this also bought. I found this GPS unit good for determining distance and maintaining direction from point A to point B, when between both points are trees, bushes and steep slopes.
All this information is easily readable on the receiver’s color vpsmap TFT display screen. The backlight works great, but lowers battery life if you don’t have it hooked to external power.
