    Perfect device

    My husband is very happy with it for sailing races in Port Philip bay. He is using a very old SD card though which is creating difficulties with inputs. So I've encourage him to update the card

    Not as good as the old model it replaced.

    I bought the GPSMap 78S to replace a 13 year old, and now dead, GPSMap 76S (b/w screen). I expected it to be an evolution and improvement on the old model but have found it to be harder to use and understand. By way of example, just getting it to display the grid reference of my current location is a challenge that, after some hours of investigating set up options, I still can't find. I'm sure it's there (it better be!) but wherever it is it's well hidden. Colour screen is very grainy. Installed base map is next to useless (actually it is useless). Also not convinced of the veracity of the claim that the unit is waterproof. It's half the price of what I paid for 13 years ago, and it shows.

     Johnny Appleseed GPS responded to this review on the 11 October 2019
    Hi Rod, The 78S will have all the features your 76 series did, plus more. Feel free to get in touch with us and we can help with the features you're trying to find. The 78S is also definitely waterproof to IPX7 standards, and will also float.
