The GPSMAP 76S handheld receiver is Garmin's most feature packed unit yet! They have taken the popular GPSMAP 76 and added an electronic compass sensor for accurate headings while standing still, a barometric altimeter for more accurate altitude readings and increased the uploadable map memory capacity to 24 megabytes. The 12 Channel WAAS receiver updates once per second and provides up to 10 foot accuracy when receiving the WAAS signal*. Several navigation "pages" clearly show your position on a moving map along with important information such as position, speed, heading, distance and more. The GPSMAP 76S has a built-in basemap of North and South America showing major highways, rivers, lakes and borders, (tide and Nav-aid information inside the US also) and you can add more detail by uploading maps from Garmin's line of optional MapSource CD-ROM's. The GPSMAP 76S is completely waterproof and even floats! Other features include a detailed trip computer, elevation computer, audible and visual alarms, sunrise/sunset and celestial tables, 5000 point automatic track log with 10 saved tracks, backlit display and keypad.
