Garmin GPSMAP 96C

Discontinued. Browse our selection of other great aviation units here >>

The portable GPSMAP 96C, along with the GPSMAP 96, integrate full-featured GPS navigation with a Jeppesen database and comprehensive towers-and-obstacles database - giving pilots the freedom to go anywhere.

The pilot-friendly GPSMAP 96C has a crisp colour display, making map detail easy to read. With 119 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.

Whether on land, sea, or air, the GPSMAP 96C 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 from plane to car to boat to hiking boots.

The GPSMAP 96C 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.

Like all of Garmin's new aviation portables, the GPSMAP 96C 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.

When coupled with optional MapSource City Navigator software, GPSMAP 96C 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 navigate the high seas or nearby lakes with ease. An added bonus: The GPSMAP 96C is not only waterproof, but also floats!
