The GPSMAP 76S ("S" for sensors) offers a built-in electronic compass, barometric sensor, 24 megabytes of internal memory in addition to those features found in the popular GPSMAP 76. Electronic Compass: Unlike a traditional GPS, which requires movement to show a heading, the built-in electronic compass will give a heading while the user is standing still.

Barometric Altimeter: The barometric altimeter provides extremely accurate elevation and pressure information, which could assist in identifying weather trends and best fishing opportunities.
WAAS Enabled: The GPSMAP 76S is designed to receive correction data from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) and position accuracy can be less than 3 meters!
Internal Memory: The unit has 24 megabytes of internal (non-expandable) user memory for storing optional MapSource detailed maps, including BlueChart marine cartography.
Built-in Basemap: The GPSMAP 76S comes with a built-in Americas Highway basemap of cities, coastlines, lakes, rivers, interstates and more.

Basemap: The version of the GPSMAP 76S 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.

SOFTWARE FOR GLIDERS Garmin GPS models with a barometric altimeter offer several software features intended to simplify navigation, competition and record keeping in a variety of gliding sports. By visiting the GARMIN web site customers with older systems may download this free software update for their eTrex Vista, GPSMAP 60CS, GPSMAP 76S, GPSMAP 76CS or VistaC. The Glide Ratio and Glide Ratio to Destination feature uses GPS altimeter functions to help competitors determine if they can reach their target without passing a point of no return. The Vertical Speed to Destination features uses GPS altimeter functions to recommend the optimal speed to reach a checkpoint in a gliding time trial. Additionally, the manual route transition feature helps users to maintain an active leg to a checkpoint. They will see an arrow pointing them in the direction they need to make their next checkpoint and also allow them to automatically or manually transition to the next checkpoint.
