    Excellent value for features.

    Great bang for buck, It's probably a bit dated now but certainly does all and more that I want in a GPS.

    Pros: It floats

    Suits my needs perfectly.

    I use this for near coastal navigation in a trailable yacht. When combined with the coastal charts available on a micro SD card it is excellent for this use. It has a range of other features, such as waypoints and routes, anchor drag warning, and man overboard setting; it is the ideal instrument for small craft.

    Pros: I bought this to replace my very old and well-used GPSmap 60CSx which I mainly use for near coastal navigation in a trailer-sailer. This 78S does the same job very well.
    Cons: It has a different fitting for the external power source so I had to re-do this on my boat.

    Exactly what I wanted

    I use it for finding the marks for low competitive sailing .

    Pros: Very clear screen.
    Cons: Took me a while to program it after changing over from a 60csx which I think was easier to program.

    Great GPS at a reasonable price.

    It floats! That's my main reason for buying this unit. It can also store double the number of waypoints than my old Garmin GPSmap 60csx. Being able to run the GPS on AA batteries allows great flexibility with the choice of using rechargeable or alkaline batteries. I like the ability to customise the data fields on the map screen. It saves me changing screens every time I want to note down a time and lat/longs. The display screen seems a little small. It is the same size as my previous GPS, however, with todays mobile phone screens getting bigger and bigger this screen now seems too small. The track that is displayed to indicate where you have been is shown as a thick coloured line. This is too distracting overlayed on the map, especially on the small screen. My previous GPS showed this as a thin dotted line and this seemed much better. I cant find any setting to change this feature. I can only change the colour of the line or turn the feature off entirely.

    Pros: It floats and the ability to customize data fields on the map screen is great. AA batteries allow flexibility in rechargebale/alkaline choice.
    Cons: It could benefit from a larger screen. The recorded track you have travelled is displayed as a thick coloured line instead of the thin black dotted line I'm used to and there seems to be no option to change this.
