The GPS 76 is designed to provide precise GPS positioning using correction data
obtained from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS).
This unit features a built-in quad helix antenna for superior reception and can
provide position accuracy to less than three meters when receiving WAAS
The GPS 76 provides 1 megabyte of internal user memory to be used for storing
Points of Interest data. This 1 megabyte of storage area is preloaded from
the factory with worldwide cities (populations greater than 200,000) and
nautical navigation aids such as lights, buoys, sound signals and day beacons,
and is perfect for downloading points of interest detail from Garmin's line of
CD-ROMs. The GPS 76 is also preloaded with tide data for the United States (unit
is only compatible with USA tidal stations).
An extra-large display measuring 1.6"W x 2.2"H gives users a clear view of
information, while a waterproof case means the GPS 76 will keep working well
even if it's been submerged in water. Even more amazing, this unit will actually
float if accidentally dropped in the water.
