Garmin 76Cx: a Rugged Handheld GPS for Land or Sea
This lightweight unit is part of Garmin's popular GPSMAP line of marine GPS receivers and chart plotters. The GPSMAP 76Cx is an upgrade to the stalwart Garmin 76C, which has long been a favorite among boaters and adventure travelers.
Weighing in at just 7.6-ounces, this user-friendly navigator has been tested to withstand even the harshest of conditions. The rugged case is waterproof, and even floats if dropped in the water. The unit's bright 256-color LCD display makes it easy for the user to view tmapping details and trip information with ease and clarity in any kind of lighting conditions.
The Garmin 76Cx delivers high accuracy with its highly sensitive SiRF receiver, capable of tracking over 20 satellites. When you're navigating the great outdoors, this handheld navigator proves to be an indispensable tool. It can quickly acquire satellite signal to help track your location, even in challenging settings such as heavy foliage or deep canyons.
The GPSMap 76CX includes 8MB internal memory for loading maps, and can be upgraded to 24MB of RAM. New units come with a blank 128 MB microSD card for storing map data. Users can purchase microSD cards pre-loaded with Garmin Topo maps and nautical charts, and City Navigator street maps. Add to that the inclusion of a basemap of principle cities, interstates (including exits), highways and roads as well as marine navigation aids, including lights, buoys, sound signals and day beacons for a one-of-a-kind routing capability.
This device has been on the market for a few years now, which means its retail price has dropped considerably. When it first appeared, reviewers praised this new x-series GPSMAP as "the Cadillac of handheld gps units" and the "best handheld Garmin yet". The Garmin 76Cx remains an excellent, versatile and rugged GPS navigator that delivers tremendous value.
