Marine GPS
Do you love spending time out on the water? If so, one of the best investments you can make is the marine GPS. This will help you arrive to your destination safely, track where you have been, and return to your original destination without incident. The GPSMAP 76S is one of the newest marine GPS tracking system options on the market today. The “S” in 76S refers to “sensors” since this system has a GPS receiver, electronic compass, bearing and elevation information, and barometric altimeter incorporated.

Additionally, the 76S also comes with a base map of both North and South America that provides important information on thoroughfares, highways, lakes, rivers, and borders. Additionally, you will find that with 24 MB of memory for downloading the MapSource data, there is no need to be concerned you will run out. This GPS tracking system is waterproof and it floats. Another benefit is that the screen is large and easy to read, the buttons are bigger, and the design has a nice, rugged look. This particular GPS averages in price around $440.

This GPS runs about $415.

The GPS 76 also offers the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) and comes with features a built-in quad helix antenna that ensures the reception is excellent. You will also benefit from the position accuracy that measures to less than three meters when the WAAS connections are used.
