making map detail easy to read. With 23 megabytes of memory and a mini-USB port,
users can quickly download and store map data from a variety of optional MapSource
CD-ROMs. Its simple one-thumb keypad control literally puts the world of GPS capability
in the palm of your hand.
on land, sea, or air, the GPSMAP 96 is the smart, versatile way to get there:
Extensive Jeppesen database includes airports, identifiers and services
Comprehensive U.S. database of obstacles and towers helps alert pilots
of potential hazards
Graphic HSI steering cues with GPS-derived VNAV
provide added orientation
Built-in autoroute basemap and optional
MapSource marine, topo and city street mapping downloads let you move seamlessly

GPSMAP 96 offers an extensive Jeppesen database along with a U.S. database of
obstacles for the ultimate in moving-map situational awareness. It depicts Jeppesen?
airport data overlaid on an electronic map, localizer-like runway extensions,
a GPS-derived horizontal situation indicator (HSI) and information on nearby airports
(including identifier, bearing and distance to each). It also features a detailed
database of nearby obstructions like radio towers and high-rise buildings. Using
symbology, it depicts an obstacle along the flight route, giving pilots a visual
cue and alerting them to potential hazards ahead.
all of Garmin's new aviation portables, the GPSMAP 96 also provides advanced navigation
capabilities on the road or water. It features a built-in basemap depicting highways,
major roads, lakes, rivers, railroads and state and national borders. It also
provides automatic-route generation, off-route recalculation, and turn-by-turn
directions with audible tones to alert the driver of upcoming turns.

City Navigator software, GPSMAP 96 enables the user to locate and route to more
than 5 million points of interest, including hotels, restaurants, service stations,
ATMs and more. For pilots who also like to captain a boat, these units have a
Marine mode. Using optional MapSource
BlueChart or Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots software, users can
