      Garmin GPSMAP 78SC GPS Navigator

      For boaters and watersports enthusiasts who want to run with the best, the rugged GPSMAP 78sc includes preloaded Australia and New Zealand charts and features a 3-axis compass, barometric altimeter, crisp colour mapping, a high-sensitivity receiver, new moulded rubber side grips, plus a microSD™ card slot for loading additional maps. And it floats!

      Explore Coastal Waters
      GPSMAP 78sc comes with built-in BlueChart® g2 coastal charts and a worldwide basemap with imagery — perfect for all your outdoor pursuits. Map detail includes shorelines, depth contours, navaids, harbours, marinas and more for Australia and New Zealand. And, like the rest of the 78-series, 78sc is IPX7 waterproof and even floats in water.

      Get Your Bearings
      GPSMAP 78sc 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, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

      Share Wirelessly
      With GPSMAP 78sc you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible device users. Now you can send the location of your favourite fishing spot to a friend to find. Sharing data is easy. Just press “send” to transfer your information to similar units.

      Keep Your Fix
      With its high-sensitivity GPS receiver and HotFix™ satellite prediction, GPSMAP 78sc locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear — whether you’re in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on GPSMAP 78sc to help you find your way when you need it the most.

      Add Maps
      Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed marine, topographic and road maps, available on microSD card. Conveniently plug in BlueChart® g2 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 waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet. GPSMAP 78sc also supports BirdsEye™ Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. In addition, the 78sc is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.

      Get Connected
      You've been busy exploring and now you want to store and analyse your activities. With a simple connection to your computer and to the Internet, you can get a detailed analysis of your activities and send tracks to your outdoor device using Garmin Connect™.

      Find Fun
      GPSMAP 78sc supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. GPSMAP 78sc stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. Slim and lightweight, 78sc is the perfect companion for all your outdoor pursuits. GPSMAP 78sc: Colourful maps, durable design and buoyant – everything a mariner needs.
