Garmin GPSMAP 79sc Handheld GPS Product Description

GPSMAP 79sc Handheld GPS

Cast off confidently with the GPSMAP 79sc marine GPS handheld. This rugged, floating handheld features a sunlight-readable, high-resolution color display that is fog-proof and scratch-resistant. You get access to a range of satellite constellations, so you get more reliable, accurate tracking around the world. Navigate wherever your adventures take you with built-in BlueChart g3 coastal charts. With more memory than previous models, you can save and track 10,000 waypoints and 250 routes. Keep your bearings with the built-in compass.

Features:

  • It's water-resistant, it floats, and it's fogproof, so it belongs on the water — just like you.
  • This thing can remember up to 10,000 waypoints and more, so you don't have to.
  • It's nice to have reliable positioning when you're out on the water.
  • The built-in compass will point you in the right direction.
  • Get the best of Garmin and Navionics data with optional BlueChart g3 coastal charts.
  • Stay out longer with up to 19 hours of battery life in GPS mode.

Rugged Handheld

This handheld is water-resistant (IPX7) with a high-resolution color display you can read in the sun. The glass is even scratch-resistant and fogproof.

Designed To Float

If rough waters come and the handheld goes overboard, don't worry. This device floats.

Battery Life

User-replaceable AA batteries (not included) provide up to 19 hours of battery life in GPS tracking mode.

Accurate Tracking

With support for multiple satellite constellations — such as GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS — you'll get accurate, reliable tracking and positioning around the world.

More memory than previous models means you can save and track 10,000 waypoints, 250 routes and 300 fitness activity files.

The 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass shows your heading — even while the boat is standing still.
