    Good unit, not too complicated.

    The GPSMAP 78 is good on batteries and has a reasonable screen. The buttons are OK to use with fat fingers and the various menu screens can be user modified to suit your needs. It fits well in a pocket as well. I carry mine in a shirt pocket and hook the lanyard in a shirt button - quick to get at and can't fall out unless you lose the button! You feel it drop out if it does, though - it hits your leg on the way down! It is quick to start up and holds onto the satellites well, even inside a vehicle, so long as it can "see" a reasonable amount of the sky. The same goes in thick forest. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the more expensive units, but does all any average user would want and some more. I first used one in the second of the two jobs I have had about seven six years ago and it was used at least three days a week from then until I retired.Then I bought one for myself because I already knew how to use it. Don't leave it on the dash of you vehicle or in the sun for long periods of time with the screen exposed - it is not good for it. A previous GPSMAP 76 a colleague used suffered badly as a result of that. It darkened the screen to the point that it was impossible to read. The only real problem I had when starting out on the 78 was learning how to down and upload tracks and points. That took a while to crack. It is a nice, compact, hardy unit that I trust to the limit of faith one should have in such things. I still keep a compass and map handy in more remote areas. You always need backup! It is a good unit and I expect that it will give long service.

    Good GPS, small screen, worth it

    Small screen can be tricky if you're on the move but otherwise it's an excellent GPS with good features. Ability to upload maps & waypoints is a very handy feature. I'm using it as a backup to a mapping system on a tablet and it's working great.

    Pros: Price is good. Small size. Works well.
    Cons: Small screen

    Great unit!

    I've been using Garmin units for years. So I had no doubt that the updated GPSMap 78 would be great. But it's even better than expected! Garmin keeps adding in new options and features to make it easier and more fun to use.

    Pros: LOTS of new features!
