Amazon.com Review

The key to success in life is knowing where you are, where you've been, and where you're going. Garmin's full-featured GPS 76 puts all of that information in the palm of your hand, mapping your movements off-road or on--and even afloat. Plus, its extensive features, PC connectivity, and add-on map options make it powerful enough for practically any need.

About the size of a small paperback book and weighing less than 8 ounces, the GPS 76 fits comfortable in the palm of your hand, but is a bit big to carry in a shirt pocket. Using the unit requires almost no setup. Just put in two AA batteries, turn it on, go outside, and wait. In about a minute or so it will determine your location. It's accurate to about three meters, thanks to the unit's support for WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System), which augments GPS signals for even greater accuracy.

Knowing your longitude, latitude, and altitude doesn't mean much without a little context. That's where the GPS 76's backlit LCD display comes in, displaying your location on detailed maps. The unit comes with a built-in basemap that includes major roads, railroads, rivers, and lakes for the U.S. and Canada, as well as a high-level worldwide map. The unit also has 1 MB memory for storing downloaded points of interest data from optional CD-ROMS, like the Roads & Recreation series.

The eight buttons, directional rocker thumbpad, and menu-based interface made it simple to access all of the unit's features and customize the display. For instance, it's a simple matter to use the buttons to set and name waypoints and build planned routes. Extra features include information on tides, sunrise and sunset, and a trip computer for seeing how far you've traveled and your average speed.

To test the GPS 76 we hit the road headed for Muir Beach north of San Francisco. It tracked our progress along Highway 1, and once we reached our destination we found it very simple to use. It showed both the elevation of the hills as well as the paths we could take. The zoom-in and zoom-out function made it simple to plan out and automatically measure the distance of our intended route.

After walking for a while and enjoying the scenery, we used the TracBack mode to guide us back to our car. The unit automatically stores waypoints as you walk along, letting you display the way home clearly on the map. We even used the TracBack capability to guide us on the roads back to the freeway.

The GPS 76 comes in handy almost anywhere, whether you're hiking, driving, boating, or wandering around a city as a tourist. Its easy-to-use interface makes it immediately useful to novices, and as you learn to exploit its programmability and features it can become an extremely powerful navigation tool. --Ken Feinstein

Pros:

  • Large backlit LCD
  • WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) support
  • Automatic TracBack shows you the way back to your start location
  • PC connectivity with ability to download points of interest and waypoints
Cons:
  • Only 1 MB built-in memory, which can't be expanded
  • Too large to fit comfortably in a shirt pocket

2-0 out of 5 stars Can't calibrate it!
It looks good and it is said that it does wonders, but I can't calibrate it. I have tried many times but it fails on me. And their tech support is hard to reach.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for PDA or PC connection
The GPS 76 is the perfect portable GPS unit for connecting to a PocketPC based PDA or a laptop. I have tested it on an iPAQ 3835 with Pocket Streets 2002 and it works like a champ. I have also tested it with a friend's PDA using Anywhere Map (a moving map/EFIS type program for flying) and it worked great. If you are in an area that can get WAAS reception, the accuracy is even better. If you are looking for a great GPS that can be used stand-alone or attached to a PDA, this is it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Handheld for the Price! Buy One!
Got this GPS for primarily geocaching...It works wonderfully! Best Unit I have owned yet... and I have owned quite a few. Garmin has done it again! If you plan to use it for driving get the MAP76.. but for navigation while hiking this one is everything you will ever need. Great Unit! Great Features and Great Price here at amazon...

4-0 out of 5 stars marine bracket
You can't get the marine bracket any place right now and the unit is useless on a small boat with out one unless you have 3 hands.

don't buy any hand held GPS that doesn't have a bracket, I learned the hard way!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Garmin Product
I just got the GPS 76 from a local store, and I must Say that I love it. I have a Garmin GPS 230(Larger, Flush Mounted Boat Unit) and actually acheived better position data because of the WAAS(Wide Area Augmentation System) which will give you correct information as colse as 9feet 95% of the time. Battery Life is Adequate and the Screen is large and easy to read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Hits the sweet spot for GPS price/performance...
So I finally got around to upgrading my trusty 3 year old Garmin 12XL to a new GPSMAP 76. I played with one of the Magellan 330s at the local store for comparison but found that once again I simply prefer the Garmin user interfaces. I also picked up the MetroGuide CD. I figured if I was going to upgrade to a mapping GPS, I'd really want richly detailed maps. Surprisingly, I've experienced no buyer's remorse whatsoever. The GPSMAP 76 is nothing short of miraculous! Garmin is to be commended for the improvements they've made to their product line over the years.

The internal quad-helix antenna is excellent. Position accuracy is superb, screen resolution is vastly improved, and the extras such as tidal and celestial info are a really nice touch. The optimal fishing/hunting time predictor seems like overkill but I'll bet there are users who swear by it. The routing and tracking functions are well thought out and much improved since the 12XL was released. WAAS is sort of a mixed bag. I find that that whenever I lock onto WAAS signals, the estimated accuracy gets a few feet worse. It's never reads more than 20-25 feet off total but it's still the opposite of what I'd expect. Regardless of what the estimated error reading is, the accuracy always seems much better than it lets on. I've been using it a lot for geocaching lately and it invariably puts me within 5-6 feet of the caches.

The MetroGuide CD is quite nicely designed for a Windows product (I'm a Mac fan!) It contains substantial improvements over Delormes Street Atlas 4 Mac which was the last CD based mapping product I owned. It's fast and accurate (I understand that they just updated all their maps) and the integration with the GPSMAP is excellent. You can easily transfer all waypoints, routes, tracks, or maps back and forth between the GPS and your PC (or VirtualPC for Mac fans). You can also connect your GPS to the serial port and dynamically track your whereabouts on your laptop screen but I find this arrangement a bit cumbersome. There are just too many wires and batteries to deal with. For me having an easily readable, high-resolution, zoomable map on the GPS is the only way to go.

The only complaint I expected to make was with regard to the limited 8 MB map storage space. It turns out that 8 MB will hold pretty much the entire San Diego, CA and San Francisco, CA Bay Area. If I were driving across the country and wanted to investigate every nook and cranny I might be concerned. Otherwise it's perfectly fine for now.

Great product, great price. Happy navigating!

4-0 out of 5 stars list price isnt 400$
this makes no sence garmin says the list price for the gps map 76 is only 321$. I dont get about this is that the vista was released at the same time if not later than the gpsmap76 and The both have the same exact list price so why is the gps76 so much more expensive. Also eopinions says your sellin it for 199$

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Sea Kayaking Companion
Before my GPS purchase, I considered a number of Magellan units in addition to some in the Garmin E Trex series. I finally decided on the Garmin Map76.

In addition to being relatively easy to use, I preferred the slightly larger screen of the Map76 over the other units. Since I was purchasing the unit to use while sea kayaking, I found the screen on the Map76 was much easier to read in the sunlight than the smaller screens on the E-Trex models. In addition, you can upload map data into this unit. (Although the unit includes a basemap, Garmin also manufactures a number of optional mapping products which cover roads, waterways and topographical features in more detail). For kayaking, I use the optional BlueCharts which is essentially like having Nautical maps at your fingertips. (These are sold by regions and tend to be a bit expensive however).

The tide station/prediction feature on the Map76 was also an important deciding factor. With this unit, you have the ability to get tidal predictions for virtually anywhere in the US at your fingertips.

The Map76 often receives criticism on the low amount of memory for uploading map data. The tradeoff however is that it also drains the battery power at a slower rate than those that boast more memory. (I also considered the GPS Map76S which has an added electronic compass and more memory, however after a trial use from a friend's, I found the Map76S unit to drain battery power far too quickly for my intended use. The Map76S was also about $100 more in cost). Although the Map76S was a slightly upgraded Map76, I didn't feel the extra features of the 76S were worth the added cost, especially with the faster rate of the battery drain.

I've logged over 500 miles of sea kayaking with this unit and am very satisfied with its performance. I find the memory capability in the Map76 is adequate for uploading maps for day trips and the balance with the battery drain is also sufficient.

Although it is waterproof, I highly suggest a transparent waterproof bag for using while kayaking to avoid salt water condensation corroding the battery leads.

Garmin also offers toll free phone and email technical support for their units and software.

This unit makes a great paddling partner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best buy in a fixed mount, charting GPS
Plotting and map availability have really come of age in this unit. Like all of Garmin's products the 162 is user friendly and menu driven. Newer units are WAAS acurate and come with a PC interface cable. All functions can be reached in a couple of button hits. There are several pages, map, position and navigation. Each has its own menu, a second swipe of the menu button brings you to the main menu. Anyone familiar with a windows computer will be able to use it almost immediately. Garmin has also added a nifty tide predictor and almanac feature. The alphanumeric waypoint naming feature is also a plus.

The 162 comes in two versions, one with an internal antenna for boats without tops (or just a bimini) which saves you from mounting the antenna, and one with a more traditional mushroom antenna for hard tops or t-tops.

The CD-ROM map includes all of the US and allows you pick and choose your area of coverage. It lacks the depth feature and hyper accuracy of Garmin's new, top of the line, blue chip models. But that's a price feature.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best in its price range.
I bought this unit after narrowing my choices down to it and the ... Standard Horizon. I went with the Garmin because of it's increased upgradability. Garmin continually updates the firmware packages for its GPS units. For instance, this unit came out before WAAS was available, but a simple, and free, download from the Garmin website added WAAS capability in a matter of minutes using the supplied AC/PC adapter. And, most importantly, Blue Chart map detail is now available in MapSource CD ROM form. This is the best map data available today (as detailed as any paper chart), and with the MapSource system, you can transfer as much or as little data as you need to your GPS. The BlueChart CD ROM adds immeasurably to this product. Negatives: the addition of the BlueChart detail slows the redraw times of the screen considerably. Also, the one area where the Standard Horizon outshines it is in screen clarity, but this unit is good enough in that respect to still come out on top, in my opinion. A solid 4 out of 5 stars. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great unit if you need a GPS and finder combo
The Garmin 168 offers quite a bit for the marine user. It is a very good multipurpose unit. It is my primary GPS and sees critical saltwater use for backcountry in the Florida keys.

The depth finder seems to work well, and though I do not use it for fishfinding that often, sensitivity seems great.

Overall, the ergonomics and packaging are typical Garmin Excellent! It survives SW use with no problems, and has a very clear and readable display.

Some features I really like:

- You can configure the screen to show only the info you desire and in the size that you prefer.

- The Mapsource capability to load topo's, marine charts, etc

When not on the water I use the unit in the car. Even without an external antenna it works well, and the built in maps are useful. Once you add in the optional maps it is even better!

One neat thing about Garmin. The firmware updates are free and easy to use. I updated the firmware on mine, and found that that had added the WAIS mode, which improves the accuracy to about 12 feet. Amazing! ... Read more
