👤A lot of the negative reviewers didn't understand what they were buying when they ordered this. This isn't a replacement for your maps and it isn't intended to be. Some of the negatives are positive features. It was large. It's large, but it will take a lot more beating than a small smart phone. The shape makes it easier to hold in the hand. 2. There is no touchscreen. Have you ever tried to use your phone in the rain? Touchscreens are great in warm climates. It is designed for use in dirty environments. 3. The user interface is outdated. This sort of phone is similar to a 2008 cell phone. The layout is easy to set up and contributes to the battery life. 4. AA batteries. The eTrex doesn't have a rechargeable battery like every other electronic device. It's difficult to understand why they think this would be a good idea. If you're out on a long hike/camping/hunting trip for several days, it's unlikely that you'll have access to a charging port, which makes it easier to just pop in two new batteries when the old ones run out. 5. There is a memory capacity. The maps take up the entire integrated memory. You can buy a 32gb card for $6 and download as many maps as you want. There are lots of videos on how to do this. 6. There is no map detail. I haven't encountered any flaws with the maps, so unless you're trekking through Gates of the Arctic, you'll probably be covered on any state or local trails. 7. Inaccuracy of location. The registered location is close to where I'm actually standing. My cell phone is usually off by 50 to 100 feet. It's not the point of exactitude, it's to help you find your way back to your camp, etc. Being off by a few yards isn't a big deal if you're within sightline. There are 8. There are noroutable maps. It operates differently than your phone's map app. You type in the address and it takes you there. It's not clear why people think it won't. There are 9. The features and interface are confusing. I can't believe this one. There are lots of videos and articles on how to use features. I download AllTrails Pro trails into Basecamp and then export them onto the eTrex when I'm ready to go. I follow the trail on the device. There are two more When I go on a non-prepared trip, I use the eTrex to record my track and save it on the device, then I plug it into my computer and send it to Basecamp. Done. If you're outdoors a lot, you're willing to dedicate minimal time to understanding how to use it, and you understand that this sub-$200 gps that will last you for a decade is not intended to replace your $800+ cellphone.
👤The company is abysmal. The product they have created is straight out of the era of the Blackberry. They offer nothing in the handheld market that is close to a modern device. This piece of hardware and software is not good. I will return it. I didn't return the inferior Garmin that I have in my car, and it burns me up. Never again! The screen is tiny, and I have encountered other issues in my brief period of ownership. I need to hike in the desert. The screen is useless. My phone works in the same way with no glasses. - The best tech minds don't work for Garmin. - The screen gets bumped in your pocket and you lose battery life. You can't search for a location by state, it returns zero results. The method to change the order of items in the Main menu is different from the Route Planning menu. - The deleted tracks menu contains all the settings. What? There are no maps. The data is solid, so I give this 2 stars instead of 1 Since my return of this device, I have been using a solution. I wanted a dedicated device just for mapping, I hike extensively off trail. I bought a burner phone at a box store and it works without being activated. I disabled all the apps that I could. I bought and downloaded Gaia for mapping and route finding. You can download maps before you leave. You can get phone service if you don't have to download maps, but it will cost more. I made the device bulletproof by adding a protective case with a backpack clip and an external battery pack. The setup has been great. Gaia is awesome. There are maps on the screen. The hardware and software are easy to use. The accuracy is very good. I have access to a lot of maps. Finally, it's a cheaper option. It's shocking that the company that does this can't do it.

👤I have an accurate gps while I am fishing. I can read the display in the sun and see my data on my network. I needed a second chart plotter.
👤I liked the graphics and the ability to use a split screen.
👤It's easy to read in the sun. It's much better than the older version we had on the boat.
👤I own a 30 foot sailboat. It works well and is good value. I would have liked to have paid more for a touch screen.
A 2.6-inch display. The display is 2.15 inches high. The diagonal is 2.6 inches. There is a shaded relief basemap and a microSD card slot for optional mapping. A compass and barometric altimeter. A built-in electronic compass and barometric altimeter. 1.7MB of memory is built-in.
👤I ordered this to have a handheld backup to the chartplotter on my sailboat, but it doesn't have any marine charts, despite being advertised as a "MarineGPS Navigator and World Wide Chartplotter". It doesn't have a microSD card so you can't load them on. You have to pay more for the marine charts you want. I should have looked at the Q&A page before buying since the first question says it's made for use on land, despite the fact that I said it was a MARINE navigator. False advertising! I will return this unit since it is useless for my purposes.
👤The maps are empty. You will have to spend more money to get the maps. The maps are not cheap, and you can only get them from the manufacturer. The download process is not easy. You will hate the company.
👤I have been using it for about 200 days a year since I got it. I put a screen protection on it, and change it out often. I use this all day for field biology work. It took some getting used to, and I still use Mapsource for some stuff to work with, but the software is much easier to use than the de lorme stuff. When my old Garmin 76 got run over, I got a Delorme Earthmate PN-60w for a backup/replacement, but it was hard to figure out, and the software was crazy. The ability to download satellite imagery was the reason I got both. The Delorme software has too many layers. You just say high resolution, and go for it. The download speeds are slow. To get a 150 mile by 100 mile area at high resolution, you will have to spend a day and a half coming back and clicking on the next section you want to download. A 200mb file can take an hour or so. I have tried on faster connections and it is still slow. I like the 10000 waypoints, I have a 32gb memory card in there, and I have 20gb of satelite imagery downloaded onto it. I like the old style push buttons, I use them a lot and charge my AA batteries on my little solar charge. I think you can go 2 days on regular AA's, though I use the screen saver that turns the screen off at 15 seconds, 30 seconds, or 1 min intervals, you can make it look like your old style garmin format for. The Cons-Garmin sat imagery is slow to download and requires a $30 a year subscription service. If you downloaded imagery on your computer while your subscription was in effect, you can't move it back onto your device once it expires. $30 a year is what they want. The cost of doing business for me is not appealing to a recreational user.
👤GArmin is for the customers. If you sort them by alphabetical order, you can keep up to 2000 waypoints. I was contacted by the company and they said that this is by design. They open a refrerence case with the reference number being PSC 41733.
Bright, Sunlight-readable 6” combo. There is a GT 24 transducer for high-definition scanning and a high wide CHIRP traditional sonar. The bluechart G3 charts have integrated data for the coastal U.S. Network support for autopilot and engine data. The quick-release bail mount is easy to use. The components include the Echomap Uhd 64Cv. With Bluechart G3. The Gt 24Uhd-Tm Transducer, Power/Data Cable, and Flush Mount are for the U.S.
👤I wish I knew it wouldn't work at our lake until we bought a sd card.
👤You will never buy anything else if you own a Garmin.
👤Nice unit. I am happy with its performance.
👤One of the best deals on the market. Bar none. Any serious fisherman or operator could ask the unit to do it all. Pair it with the correct transducer.
👤Does this unit have a gps device?
The floating design, sunlight-visible display and button operation make it easy to use the water. Boat data can be streamed from compatible chartplotters and instruments. Bluechart G3 coastal charts have the best of both Garmin and Navionics data. Satellite communication and two-way text messaging can be accessed via the 100% Global Iridium satellite network. To use a remote control for your autopilot and Fusion Marine products, you need to download a free app from the Connect IQ store. The filter has a smooth speed and heading indication. Satellite subscription will cause an interactive alert to the search and rescue monitoring center.
👤The device seems to function as advertised after it was received. I was very disappointed because despite being marketed as a "marine device", it doesn't work with the active captain app to share charts with the app or other chart plotters. It doesn't qualify for the "new chart guarantee" that other chart plotters and cards get. One year out of current, my device has charts on it. I was referred to an obscure support page that explained that "hand held devices" don't work with one chart or new chart guarantee. The promotional info for their marine charts does not make this distinction, so I felt this was deceptive marketing. If the charts are important to you and you want to buy a card with charts, I would recommend getting a device without charts.
👤This seller is not a good one for buyers. They used it and sold it, but the screen protectors looked like they had been wiped and sold. As a new thing, didn't install new maps... Was going to Florida. The seller is not trustworthy.
👤It is easy to hold on to when moving in a boat with the light weight covered in a tacky rubber. I used it for the entire day on the water after accidentally forgetting to turn it off, but I didn't have to charge it. I love bread crumbs feature and live tracking. I would like it to have the same display as the garmin gps. I put a piece of yellow electrical tape on the antenna to make it easy to see if it goes over the board. Both face up and face down.
👤The gps marine handheld is very popular. It was very difficult to get connected to my phone, once connected to the "garmin connect" app, it feeds advertisements to the gps. I don't want advertising on my gps unit. I was getting notifications that I had earned badges for doing things like standing up and walking. This is the second kind of information I want on my gps. When planning a route between two points of interest, you go to routes and pick your points. When you pick your points, you get a large list of POI's that are organized by distance from you. If you want to find a particular buoy that is 5 miles away, you have to scroll through hundreds of other buoy that are closer to you. There is no way to reduce the list. The weather charts are colorful, but there is no scale to tell you what color means. I was looking for a gps with charts. The 86Sci has a lot of gingerbread on it that I don't want or need. This unit is not as good as the reputation of the company.
👤I might feel better about this product with time. The instructions are my main disappointment. There was a very limited quick start guide in the package. I was hoping to go online and watch a few things. This is a very expensive unit. I can't believe that this would be on the market without video support. The included map is a problem. It covers too much for me. I had an old 64 that was much cheaper and better, but it's not available now. Someone at Garmin had the idea to move the input buttons above the screen on several units so you can't see what you're putting, but you can cover the screen.

👤The chip does not work right. It takes time to build the graphics as you move, the bottom graphics are then covered with a green square.

The quick-release bail mount is easy to use.
👤I mounted it with a rotating puck and the brackets are flimsy, I'm worried it's going to vibrate too much when I bang through chop in my classic whaler. Anyone who's ever ridden a classic whaler in chop knows what I'm talking about. We haven't had it on the water yet. I'm worried about it. It might have to be reinforced. It was kind of odd. My 1994 Humminbird was replaced by this. Bombproof screen. I can't compare the fish finder features to anything else, but they seem amazing to me, given what I'm used to. The charts look great. The charts I've been using from the NOAA are not as good. It's got a depth map for almost every lake around me. It's perfect for an inland fisherman. I was able to modify the chart display and set routes. The bells and whistles are crazy. I have a phone that I use for everything, but I also have an SD card that I put in it to save my depth data, and now I'm thinking about new boat upgrades, like an NEXA2000 RPM interface for my classic outboard and anAIS radio. I mostly bought it for the chartplotter and fish finder capabilities, which are outstanding so far.
👤We don't take the boat out without it. The maps are very accurate and the lake has a lot of submerged timber and sand bars.
👤I use the garmin 63cv for the maps and the smaller ff on my kayak. I fine the fish just as I do the extension.
👤It is very easy to use. Lowrance 5x was junk.
👤You can see the screen in the sun light.
👤Easy install and clear instructions make it work. It was a good experience, better than I expected.
👤The directions are hard to understand. The technical writing needs to be changed. The unit is easy to install.
Every fishing environment has a rugged design. Transmit power: 200 W (RMS) and frequencies: 50/77/83/200 kHz. The handheld has a high-sensitivity gps receiver and a 2.6-inch color display. It's perfect for water sports and boating. BlueChart g2 is a built-in. The U.S./Bahamas has coastal charts with shorelines, depths, and more. A built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass and barometric altimeter is included. Share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches with other compatible device users.
👤The garmin 78sc worked for a week, then got an error message that it couldn't unlocks maps, and then they said garmin knew about the problem and a fix was being worked on.
👤I have used this device extensively, including over a 47 day kayak trip from Anacortes, Washington to Petersburg, AK. It's an awesome tool when it's functioning correctly. There are some design defects that need to be fixed. 1. The rubber covers for the power andusb ports leak salt water and can cause problems. Positive enclosures that never leak are what my other IPX 7 devices have. 2. The device consumes more power when loaded with a lot of waypoints. I was able to see this over a long period of time as I deleted routes and waypoints. As data grows, it never gets to sleep because the software loop always evaluates everything rather than what's currently relevant. 3. The unit OFTEN was locked up. This would require removing the protective cover and restarting. It's not something you want to do in windy conditions. I stopped using this feature eventually. I love it when it works. Before paddling on salt water, I have coated protective covers with Aquaseal. I have to remove it before I can connect it to the computer. They are very close to a great design and I want to love it. Wouldn't it be great if they listened to their customers better? January 7, 2020. I would like to add to my review. Over 34 days, last summer, circumnavigated the island by kayak. I loaded my gpsMAP with a lot of data. While following tracks the battery never locked up. I think software changes have fixed my complaints. Poor design of port covers will leak.
👤I bought the product to replace my old handheld 76c. It was a workhorse and the maps were small. The device could be used with WP. I was disappointed that the charts had no detail, like buoy markings, when I purchased the 78sc. I only had a giant marker on the scale of a small scale chart, because making scale larger resulted in the loss of any useful landmarks. Tech support said to me "what do you expect with a handheld and limited memory?" Over a decade later? The 76c is not a replacement for the 78sc, which is a handheld marine chart. The screen size is smaller than the older model. I would not recommend this device for use in the water.
👤Over the years, I've used a number of Garmin handhelds. I bought this unit to replace the failed one. The 78sc was expected to be a decent replacement. This is not the case. The hardware seems very good, but the software is terrible, especially compared to the oldGPSMAP 76. After I downloaded my old routes and waypoints, I tried to use the unit on my sailboat for a race around the cans. After loading up a route consisting of A, B, C, and A, the unit did not flip to the next waypoint, once a waypoint is reached. I couldn't find a way to flip it. It's difficult to explain, but you will find it annoying. TheGPSMAP 76 was superior in this area. There are two more You can't tell on the navigation page what your next point is. Unlike the 76, it is not displayed. There are 3 more The "active route" page doesn't give any information about the route's waypoints, just the names. Again, unlike the 76. The points are listed in order of distance, not alphabetical. It is hard to find what you are looking for if you have a lot of waypoints. There are five When you are on a sailboat in moderate seas, the speed andvelocity made a good jump. The 76 allowed you to take averages for a longer period of time. The option is not available on the 78sc. The unit is hard to read when the backlight is off. The battery life is poor with the backlight on. The user interface of the 78sc was dumbed down by Garmin. A disappointment. The 78sc is almost useless for me.

👤You can't find anything easier or more complete than this, and there are so many to choose from. It is easy to use and install and the hardware is included.
👤Great unit. It was easy to use. Loaded maps do not have update and accuracy which impacts reason for purchase. I had to buy charts to supplement the ones I already have. I did this after 6 uses and 2 cases of running aground because of the US Coastal Maps.
👤There is a $100 rebate on the cruise 7. It's a nice plotter. The stock charts they came with did not work for me in Alaska. The alaska chart card is from Navionics. The sounder provides a sharp picture and the plotter is easy to use. It is easy to see all the necessary information on the screen. It's a good one! It's easy to install.
👤It works like a champ. The install was easy and the visibility was great.
👤I had to buy an SD card from the warehouse for $200 because I didn't have Alaska waterways installed.
👤After messing with the unit to get the add on software installed. The installation should go without a hitch because it is a nice unit. It is definitely worth it to have a big screen with easy controls.
👤The depth finder hasn't worked since I bought it. I was on hold for over an hour while trying to call tech support. I made the purchase for the charts because of that.
👤Does not have charts for inland waterways.
