Garmin GPSMap 76

Discontinued. Replaced by the Garmin GPSMAP 78 >>

The GPSMAP 76 has a larger display than the popular eTrex series and can be used with an external antenna for greater convenience in awkward viewing situations as well as for improved reception in poor signal locations. All the buttons are located on the front face for ease of operation when the unit is supported in a mounting bracket.

Area calculation (version 2.02 and later, click here for instructions), position averaging, up to nine programmable data fields, audible alarms, proximity & anchor drag alarms are additional features of the GPSMAP 76. This model also features a built-in quad helix antenna for superior reception

waas enabled The GPSMAP 76 can provide position accuracy to less than 3 metres when receiving WAAS corrections.

A large numbers option allows for easy viewing at a distance, and the backlit display and keypad simpifies use in low light situtations. The waterproof GPSMAP 76 will keep working well even if it has been submerged in water, and will actually float if dropped in the water.

The GPSMAP 76 comes with a built-in Americas Highway basemap of cities, coastlines, lakes, rivers, interstates, and interstate exit information and a database of nautical navaids.

Basemap: The version of the GPSMAP 76 sold in North America contains the Americas Highway basemap We are not able to supply units with the Atlantic or Pacific basemap; these are available only outside the Americas.

In addition, this unit has eight megabytes of internal (non-expandable) user memory for storing optional MapSource data.

The GPSMAP 76 is preloaded from the factory with worldwide cities (populations greater than 200,000) and nautical navigation aids such as lights, buoys, sound signals and day beacons, as well as tide data for the United States.
• If MapSource data is loaded to the GPSMAP 76, the preloaded database will be erased. To recover this data the Preloaded Points of Interest Database file can be downloaded from GARMIN's web site.
MapSource data and the GARMIN Points of Interest database cannot be loaded at the same time.

The GPSMAP 76 will offer support of MapSource BlueChart data with Version 2.05 or later software.

Feedback from a Farmer:
"The GPSMap 76 is great for my application in farming. I use it do a couple things, first I use it to boundary a field to check the acreage. Then I move it to the tractor where it helps me gauge my track for fertilizer application. I do this by selecting an appropriate zoom level, and simply driving parallel at an appropriate distance from my last pass, shown on the map as a track. When I am done the field, the track has recorded a nice trace of where in the field I traveled. Missed spots show up nicely. Mostly it just helps to keep myself say 30 or 40 feet from my last pass down the field in applications where you otherwise can't tell where you've been. I spread fertilizer in the dark the other night. Thay may have been a first in North America. When the spreader runs dry I mark a way point so I know where I have left off for later. Then I can move back to the quad, boundary the area I fertilized, and given I have a known amount of product spread, I can calculate exactly the application rate on each load. This helps save money because I can correct rate errors between loads. I put on the correct rate without over applying. I tell you the machine works great for this. I use track logs to trace drainage tile lines, way points to pinpoint key location in those lines like 'Tees" etc.
