GARMIN GPSMAP76CS / GPSMAP76CSx

Hand held GPS receiver with large display, integrated world and Europe/Africa map, electronic compass, barometrical altimeter, special features for marine use plus USB and serial interface.

The GARMIN GPSMAP76CS / GPSMAP76CSx is easy to use, supports multiple languages, has a large, easy to read color display, an extremely sensitive antenna, an integrated world map (overview) plus a base map of Europe, Africa and the near East. In addition, the GPSMAP76CS has 115 MB of built-in memory to store even more detailed information, such as local roads, restaurants and points of interest. The GPSMAP76CSx has a slot for a standard micro SD memory card in the battery compartment and comes with a 128 MB memory card. As an enhancement over the GPSMAP76C / GPSMAP76Cx, the GPSMAP76CS / GPSMAP76CSx has an electronic compass and a barometrical altimeter. It provides special features for marine use, such as off course, anchor drag or shallow water alarms. The GPSMAP76CS / GPSMAP76CSx provides navigation information outdoors, in a car, in a train, on a boat or even in an airplane (see MapSource examples). The built-in serial interface supports data exchange with a PC.
