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 BlueChart Maps

Garmin BlueChart g2 marine maps feature crisp labeling and an overall smoother presentation on your Garmin Montana display. In addition to the basic charts, tidal stations, currents, depth contours, IALA symbols and included fishing charts, BlueChart g2 offers improved transitioning between zoom levels and more seamless continuity across chart boundaries.

Garmin GPSMAP 78 and 78s GB Discoverer Maps

GB Discoverer maps feature full OS Landranger maps at a scale of either 1:25k or 1:50k. The smaller 1:25k maps are only available for specific National Parks and Trails e.g. Peak District, Central Highlands and The Cotswolds For a larger area then look no further that the 1:50k map of all of Great Britain. Which represents good value when you consider that the one SD/microSD Card includes all 204 detailed paperback OS Landranger maps!
