Garmin GPSMAP 78 and 78s Maps

Do you own a Garmin GPSMAP 78 or 78s? Are you considering buying one?

Then you need to read on to discover the additional maps you can buy and install to take the Garmin GPSMAP 78s and view your outdoor adventures in a whole new way!

As standard the GPSMAP 78 and 78s marine GPS handhelds are both preloaded with Garmin's basemap. The basemap includes major roads, rivers, lakes, etc. This information whilst useful, doesn't match up to the additional mapping that is available to use with the Garmin GPSMAP 78s.

The additional maps that are available provide rich specific map data for different purposes e.g. BlueCharts maps which provide marine cartography charts for costal waters around the UK and other European countries. In total there are four different types of maps (pictured right) that can be used within the GPSMAP 78s. Read on to discover more about them.


Garmin GPSMAP 78 and 78s BlueCharts

Garmin BlueCharts provide coastal and off-shore waters on the screen of your GPSMAP 78/78s. These maps are perfect if you are heading out to sea on a day trip or a longer voyage. Garmin BlueCharts can be purchased to cover a small area of water e.g. English Channel (pictured right) or a very large expanse of water e.g. Europe Atlantic Coast.

Tip: Garmin BlueChart g2 HD charts are the version to buy and use with the Garmin GPSMAP 78/78s. Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision HD version (with extra features) are for use with dedicated Garmin chartplotters.

All Garmin Bluecharts come supplied on plug-and-play SD/microSD Card.
