    Compact and works on boat 12 volt system as well as portable with batteries.

    I mainly use the GPS for fishing on my own boat and I can take it on a mates boat when on battery power. I have the boat ramp set as a waypoint so I can safely return when the sea mist occurrs,

    Pros: More functions than my older model.

    Great GPS for most uses

    I previously had the more expensive version of this GPS but there seems to be no operational difference other than the basic 78 has marine maps on it (which I don't need).

    Pros: Excellent performance and value for money.
    Cons: Nothing

    Ok for price point

    This was purchased for a friend, so I don’t know it in depth. It worked well, and display is nice. The rubberised back of the unit was quite scuffed, and looked used. It also knew it was in Brisbane before it got its first position fix, which a new Garmin doesn’t do. So was like a used device for the price of a new one, so I was dissapointed in that way.

    Pros: Capable
    Cons: Ugly
     Johnny Appleseed GPS responded to this review on the 8 May 2020
    Hi Bret, all of our units are brand new from Garmin Australia. The only reason I could think of that the GPS had been established before, was if a firmware update was necessary at some point to update a critical issue before sale. If so, the GPS position would have likely been our Brisbane workshop.
